WAY OF KNOWLEDGE
COURSE

It is through action, devotion and knowledge that the essential nature within everyone may be expressed. They act as channels for this expression.

Plato uses the analogy of a ship sailing safely to its destination to illustrate the need for real knowledge of navigation. Human life also needs to be directed by knowledge as distinguished from mere opinion, belief or supposition.

A prerequisite for enrolment:
Completion of the first 6 courses.

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

This course, using the insights of the wise and experimenting with various practices, will examine what is means to 'know'. Knowledge is the birthright of every human being but is not what we generally claim it is. Come explore and discover.

How does knowledge appear?
Where does knowledge come from?
What is the difference between information and knowledge?
How can knowledge be transformative?
What is reason and how does it work?
