EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO LIVE A RICHER AND MORE MEANINGFUL LIFE?

Courses offered online via Zoom or Face-to-Face

INTAKE NOW OPEN

Term 1 begins 7 February

LEARN HOW TO APPLY PHILOSOPHY TO YOUR LIFE, NOT JUST THEORY, BUT IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS.


The Wisdom Within
is the first course at Practical Philosophy Australia.  It will introduce you to the world's great philosophical teachings, show you ways of accessing a lasting happiness beyond material gain and help you to realise the unifying power of love.

You will consider where true wisdom is found; what it means to come to a greater understanding of yourself and your states of awareness; how justice is relevant to a meaningful life, and what the present moment means in practical terms.

ONLINE OR FACE-TO-FACE

The course format is live with a dedicated tutor either online or face-to-face.

During each session you'll have the opportunity to interact with the tutor as well as your fellow students.

Together you will explore the core questions about life and existence; experiment with exercises in mindfulness and discover how easily you can access the wisdom you already have within you.

The course explores what holds us back? What sets us free? and importantly invites students to see life as a place to test the words of the wise. Are they applicable now, centuries later? As companions on this exploration, we have concepts and ideas put forward by some of the greatest minds; Socrates, Plato, Confucius, Buddha, Epicurus, Emerson, Vivekananda and a modern exponent of the philosophy of Unity, Shantananda Saraswati.

There is no attempt to cover all philosophical systems, but there is plenty of opportunity for anyone interested to engage in lively discussion of the big questions of life and the world around us. Previous students have discovered a more mindful presence and effective action in work, study and every aspect of daily life.
