WORKSHOPS

WORKSHOPS ARE PART OF THE PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY COURSES.

Every term the School provides the opportunity for students in Part 1 to 15 to meet for either a half day or a full day on a weekend. These are held each term as an opportunity to engage in practical exercises, study sessions and small feedback groups.

There are also other events during the year open to all students, as well as family and friends. These are an opportunity to join with the school community as a whole.

SUNDAY 7 APRIL 9:00am - 3:00pm

We are pleased to announce the 2024 National Symposium, and invite you, your friends and your family to this annual event that brings our national school communities together.

The event will be held online via Zoom and simultaneously 'in person' at the school's property "Mahratta" in Wahroonga, Sydney. If you can make your way to Mahratta you are most welcome to attend in person on the day. It's a wonderful opportunity to connect the school community along with your friends and family. If you live outside of the Sydney area or prefer to dial in remotely, everything will be in place for you to seamlessly join the presentations online via Zoom, making this a truly national school event.

We are finalising a fantastic program, consisting of a variety of presentations and activities all drawn from the rich knowledge and areas of expertise of students from schools across the country.

REGISTRATIONS OPEN SOON!

 Sattwa Sessions is half day workshop open to any current students in the first three courses:

The Wisdom Within, Happiness or Love.

‘Sattwa’ is one of the fundamental forces or energies running through everything. Sattwa is the force which illuminates things and lights them up. It conducts consciousness.

This complimentary study morning is offered once per term. There are three Sattwa Sessions programs in each year and each study morning explores sattva in different ways. The program remains the same on each of the three mornings: an introductory presentation, practical exercises and small-group feedback and study sessions. The exercises are always illuminating and the material presented for study is always inspiring.

There is no charge for this workshop as it is included in your course fee.

Living Wisdom is a half day workshop open to all current students in courses 4 - 15 in the school’s program.

The morning provides an opportunity to mix with other members of the School and to work together on mindful practices that may lead to transformative new ways of speaking, thinking and working.

People who have attended these days speak highly of the power that’s available when a group of like-minded people come together to work for this kind of freedom. The main idea is to broaden our horizons, take some time to wonder about things that really matter, and leave with practical skills to live more fully.
