The aim of this course is to offer a practical means to discover fully who we are, understand how to relate to the world we live in and what gets in the way of being happy, peaceful and free.

It invites students to see life as a place to test the words of the wise through practical and mindful exercises.

The ten weekly sessions explore central human questions through discussion, practical observation, conversation and reflection in good company.

Self-enquiry through practical philosophy

Themes included in the course:

How it works

A tutor presents material (online via Zoom), and leads a discussion based on what arises. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.

Frequently asked questions

The course is practical in the sense that it is designed to be of direct use in our everyday lives. The intention is to stimulate enquiry and through this expand the way we look at the world and ourselves.
