EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO LIVE A RICHER AND MORE MEANINGFUL LIFE?

YEAR 1 ‘THE HEART OF PHILOSOPHY’

Sustainable Happiness
Term 2

Year 1: Course 2   The desire for happiness is hard-wired into human nature because happiness is part of our nature. But something’s blocking the flow. The Sustainable Happiness course opens the gate and sets you on your way.

Fullness of Love
Term 2

Year 1: Course 3 The Fullness of Love follows naturally from the The Wisdom Within and Sustainable Happiness courses. It looks at the connection between happiness and love. One of the first questions asked  was “What does it mean to really love wisdom?”

YEAR 2 'THE AIM OF PHILOSOPHY & YEAR 3 'THE WAY OF PHILOSOPHY'

Presence of Mind
Term 2

Year 2: Course 4 The second year program is 'Aim of Philosophy', the courses are titled Freedom, Presence of Mind and The Way of Action. Presence of mind is the working surface of practical philosophy. What does it mean to be really present?

Freedom
Term 2

Year 2: Course 5  Aim of Philosophy aims at awakening the individual’s ability to transform their world by enacting their sovereign freedom in the present moment. Without awareness of the present moment, it’s impossible to see the way forward.

Way of Action
Term 2

Year 2: Course 6 The way of action is said to be one way in which the individual become universal. We spend all day long engaged in action. But what does philosophy say as to how this can take place in a way that is not binding but liberating?

Way of Knowledge
Term 2

Year 3: Course 8 It is through action, devotion and knowledge that the essential nature within everyone may be expressed. Human life needs to be directed by knowledge not just mere opinion, belief or supposition.

Way of Life
Term 2

Year 3: Course 9 Action, Devotion and Knowledge are not three separate ways. Every human being has a body for action, a heart for loving and reason for knowing. The Way of Life  explores how this works in daily life.

YEARS 4 'PHILOSOPHY & NATURE' & YEAR 5 'LEVELS OF EXISTENCE'

Law of Three
Term 2

Year 4: Course 10 This course considers the law of three, which describes the operation of the three guṇāh, the three fundamental substances or primary forces or energies in creation. Knowledge of the guṇāh is the key to self-mastery.

The Five Kosha
Term 2

Year 4: Course 11 Advaita philosophy describes how the self and its nature is concealed, covered, or hidden from view by five sequential koshas (or sheaths). Each kosha is progressively more refined and more subtle than the one before.

The Absolute
Term 2

Year 5: Course 13 In all philosophies, the nature of the absolute is taken as indescribable, but there are ways of approaching it which make it available to individual experience. This course uses the teachings of Advaita to explore the absolute.

Harmony
Term 2

Year 4: Course 12 When a human being is in harmony with themselves, the heart is in harmony with the mind, and action reflects that harmony in a creative and direct response to the needs of the moment. The aim is harmony with all.
