How our courses help to shape your life:
All of our courses are based on a group setting where shared experiences create a basis for life learning. Our ten-week introductory course provides a foundation for further learning and inquiry. There are three terms each year: in January, April, and September.
We are now enrolling for our next session, which begins on April 1, 2020.
#1 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.
This term we concentrate on one essential aspect of self-knowledge, true happiness, and how it may be fully experienced. We ask what happiness is, whether it’s innate in human beings, and permanent or transient. Also considered is the difference between happiness and pleasure, and how one might increase happiness while working.
#4 Presence of Mind
#6, The Way Of Action
This term looks at the importance of the impulse and intention, patience, and one’s attachment to the outcome of an action. Also discussed, with a look at the Bhagavad Gita, is that the greatest power of action comes from Love. Failing this, one can resort to discipline & duty, which can grow into Love.
#7, The Way Of Devotion
#8, The Way Of Knowledge
#9, The Way of the Householder
#10, The Law Of Three
#11, The Five Sheaths
#12, The Law Of Seven
In this term we consider the succession of events which move us from ignorance to realization. Among these are Good Impulse, Decision, Effort, Insight and Abundance.
There is a short break each class for refreshments. All lessons are interactive, accessible, and informal.
Meditation training is offered in the second and third years.
