THE WISDOM WITHIN

Our lively introductory course 'The Wisdom Within' is interactive and practical, so you discover real-world solutions to some of life’s challenges. It provides tools and techniques for experiencing greater happiness and feeling more present and connected to yourself and those around you.

Practical Philosophy Australia offers a journey of self-discovery that guides you towards understanding your own innate wisdom and an appreciation of the underlying unity connecting us all.

IT'S PHILOSOPHY MADE PRACTICAL

The course explores where true wisdom is found; what holds us back? What sets us free? It aims to guide you to a greater understanding of yourself, your states of awareness and how justice is relevant to a meaningful life.

The course introduces practices that transform philosophical concepts into tools for day to day living. It is not a dogmatic approach – rather you are invited to test out the words of the wise for yourself and see what resonates.

PHILOSOPHICAL SYSTEMS

Philosophical enquiry and study in the School is directed towards the understanding of the unity which underlies everyone and everything. This philosophy is known as Advaita Vedanta.

As companions on this exploration, we discuss 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.

ONLINE OR FACE-TO-FACE

The course format is live and interactive, either online or face-to-face.

The course is conducted by a dedicated tutor for the duration, in small groups of anywhere up to 30 like-minded individuals.

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