Just as colours can be in harmony and just as the notes of the musical octave can be arranged harmoniously, so the human being can move harmoniously towards a realisation of his or her full potential. The course outlines seven steps through which the evolving soul can become more aware of that potential until there is full realisation.
A prerequisite for enrolment:
Completion of the first 11 courses.
Harmony is not available this term.
WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?
The very idea of harmony has its origins in the principles of music. In musical composition, seven principal notes are arranged and re-arranged according to time and rhythm. The variety of musical forms testifies to the infinite potential available to anyone who knows about the octave and follows the rules of music.
Just as music has rules, so does the realm of action. Nature creates mountains, builds rivers, carves out continents and regulates the ebb and flow of the oceans, all because it’s built to follow rules. Human beings, however, have the freedom to choose – if they know about how to act harmoniously, they can do so. Our minds can act in harmony with our hearts and our actions can act in harmony with the needs of the actor, the needs of others and the needs of the universe.
The result is internal harmony, harmony with the world around us and harmony with the universe.

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.
