PHILOSOPHY & FREEDOM COURSE

This course explores the nature of freedom and our preconceived ideas which may limit our sense of freedom. The desire for freedom is common, however without awareness in and of the present moment, it’s impossible to see the way forward. We cannot act freely, so we react with knowledge from the past or desire for the future. Either way, we are simply recycling experience. The thing is to be, here and now, instead of constantly becoming something other than what we are.

A prerequisite for enrolment:
Completion of The Wisdom Within, Happiness, Love and Presence of Mind course.

ENROLMENTS FOR TERM 3 NOW OPEN.

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

What is the true nature of freedom? How may it be experienced fully and constantly? How is freedom lost? How does this apply both to individuals and to societies?

An Indian wisdom tradition lists wonder as one of nine motive forces and Socrates said Philosophy begins in wonder so let’s start our exploration there. During this term we accompany Odysseus on his journey to Freedom looking at some of the obstacles he encounters on his return home.

We practice the principles of a dialectic conversation and address freedom of speech. As well as Homer we look at the Chandogya Upanishad, Steven Hawking and Shakespeare’s “All the worlds a stage”.

OUR COURSE IN PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY MAKES WISDOM PRACTICAL.

Somewhere along the way, practical philosophy got hijacked by theoretical philosophy. It’s time to take it back. Our courses are for people seeking to understand the nature of existence and the world in which we live.
