I saw an ad in the City Newspaper, clipped and kept it for months. "This looks interesting; I wonder what it's about? Maybe some day, I'll go see." There was always a conflict, of schedule or hesitation at the unknown.
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, from the drive on East Avenue to the grand Perkins Mansion to the energy and openness of fellow students, keeps me coming back. As I move through the world, concepts discussed in class consistently arise.
When thoughts inevitably turn to the past or the future, the refrain "attend to the work surface" draws me into the present moment and centers me.
Practical Philosophy indeed!
Thank you.

This school has provided me with a rudder for how to respond to challenges and live more fully in the joy of each moment. I am so grateful for the practical tools I have learned which help me to recognize what is truly meaningful. 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.
