PRESENCE OF MIND COURSE

The Presence of Mind course involves a consideration of the faculties of mind that are available to us. The course deals with the relationship between the past, present and future, and the relationship between cause and effect which arises out of this relationship.

It aims at awakening the individual’s ability to transform their world by enacting their sovereign freedom in the present moment.

 

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

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

This course involves a consideration of what it really means to be present and how to strengthen that capacity. Explore the meaning and value of wakefulness, and gain insight on how to live in the moment and make the most of life.

At the heart of this course is one of the most fundamental studies for philosophers, the analogy of Plato’s cave. Do you stay in the shadow world of relativity or break the bonds and journey to the light? To help with our enquiry into the transient and the eternal we look at another analogy from Advaita philosophy that of the gold and the ring. The quotes for this term are varied from James Allen to Helen Keller and William Blake to Ralph Waldo Emerson.
