After completing the Introductory and Foundation courses, you are invited to continue your adventure in practical philosophy. Further courses are offered, which serve to expand and deepen students’ appreciation of the search for wisdom.
Practical philosophy is not so much a subject of study as it is a way of life, and these courses provide the opportunity for ongoing exploration. There are many students around the world who have been attending the School’s courses for several decades!
The next courses to be offered are Way of Knowledge and The Absolute, commencing from the week of May 22, 2023.
Eligibility criteria may apply to ongoing courses and students transferring from other locations or returning from a break in attendance are invited to contact us before enrolling.
Way of Knowledge
This term we will focus on the subject of knowledge. A doctor has knowledge of medicine, a dancer has knowledge of movement, a jeweller has knowledge of gems. The jeweller can tell the difference between a fake and an authentic gem. The knowledge that we are interested in here is the knowledge about how to live in such a way that is liberating, satisfying and full. It tells us the difference between the fake and the authentic liberation.
Prerequisite: completion of the Way of Devotion course.
Advaita philosophy says that the Self is identical with that which is the cause of the universe. In Advaita philosophy that which is the cause of the universe is called Brahman. This Sanskrit word is usually translated as the Absolute. This term we will consider the concept of the Absolute and the nature of the Absolute as it is described in Advaita philosophy.
Prerequisite: completion of the Harmony course.
