About our courses
Innovative and stimulating approaches to philosophy
The courses treat philosophy as a personal and practical attitude to life and its opportunities; thereby enabling people to deepen and develop an understanding of life and oneself. These are not academic courses as would be followed in a university, but aim to be intensely practical and based upon experience.
The school has found that exploring the inner life and making it practical for daily living requires a method of cultivating inner stillness and peace. For this purpose students are offered an introduction to the practice of meditation after a few terms of study of philosophy. Thereafter the regular practice of meditation is central to the study and practice of philosophy.
The school provides for students to continue their studies for as long as they wish, viewing philosophy in particular, as a life long study with practical applications and implications at all stages of life.
Because the courses are intended for people with normal working and family lives, the school's courses are based on evening classes offered on a weekly basis. Some centres also offer daytime classes. These are all supported by weekend activities with weekend and week-long residential seminars being available to students who have studied in the school for some time.
