Practical Philosophy

Drawing on the philosophic ideas of East and West, past and present, this introduction to the school explores the meaning of wisdom, truth, consciousness and the real nature of human beings. Wisdom is the knowledge which allows life to be lived in such a way that is is true and happy.

What Our students say

This school has provided me with a rudder for how to respond to challenges and live more fully in the joy of each moment. The deep connections I have made with others in the school and the knowledge I am part of an amazing dynamic with all (people and nature) brings me daily bliss. This is why I smile šŸ™‚

Chrisanne Mansfield

I started in Fall 2014 with Chrisanne's introductory class. She got me hooked (in the best way)! I'll be taking Part 6 in April. Everything about Practical Philosophy, and the energy and openness of fellow students, keeps me coming back. As I move through the world, concepts discussed in class consistently arise.
