LOVE COURSE

Love unites and makes whole. But in a world where divisions of all kinds prevail, including those within ourselves, a conscious consideration of love is necessary. Through systematic inquiry and a set of practical exercises, the Love course aims to help students dissolve feelings of separation and become more aware of the pure love that lives inside us all.

A prerequisite for enrolment:
Completion of The Wisdom Within course and Happiness course.

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

What is love? Although it is something we all feel, have you ever stopped to consider what it’s function is? If it is to unify why is there so much division in the world? Can love be increased? The ancient Greeks describe different kinds of love Eros, Philia and Agape. St. Johns gospel calls love the new commandment while others see only one love everywhere. This course, being practical, also considers love and its relationship to the various roles we play in our daily lives, love and work, love and our closest relationships and even love and law. Epictetus and Khalil Gibran are some of the philosophers that enlighten us and of course Love would not be love without the musings of the poets and of these we hear from Shakespeare and Rumi.
