A 10-week evening course exploring the underlying ideas of eastern and western philosophy and how
these can guide practical action.
This is a practical course in how to ‘live’ philosophy. Great thinkers and philosophers such as Plato, Socrates, Shankara,
Buddha, Lao Tzu, Gurdjieff and others are discussed, and their philosophies are related to the common challenges facing us in everyday life.
Topics covered are:
- What is philosophy?
- Present moment awareness
- Our experience of Self
- Self, ego and attachments
- Attention and states of awareness
- Experiencing beauty
- The three qualities of consciousness
- Discursive mind
- Advaita Vedanta and non-duality
- The functions of mind
- Working in the moment
- Wisdom for life
This course will help you understand the illusionary selfversus the natural
Self, and how this relates to both problems and worthwhile actions in your life. You will learn how to observe your thoughts, judgements and assumptions about yourself and others,
how to experience mental clarity and the purpose of your actions. The course leads to improved skills in being in the present moment, relating to others, dealing with stressful or difficult
situations, and clarity of thought and action in your work and home life.
The course presenters have been involved with the study, teaching and practical application of philosophy for many
years. They have an interactive and easy to understand approach so that anyone will be able to understand the ideas and concepts taught.
