Mindfulness has been an integral part of the School of Practical Philosophy in Perth for many years.
This February, the experienced and knowledgeable tutors invite you to join the School of Practical Philosophy's popular Mindfulness & Practical Philosophy course. Entitled 'The Wisdom Within', the course consists of 10 enlightening sessions, designed to help you discover time-tested methods that lead to freedom, mindfulness and happiness.
This 10-week course reveals how wisdom leads to happiness, shows how to live more mindfully with greater purpose and teaches how to harness the power of attention.
Under the guidance of the knowledgeable School of Practical Philosophy tutors, students will learn about different mindfulness techniques in depth and how they can benefit us in a variety of ways.
The format of the class is interactive, where students can discuss the big questions and find what gems are truly ever present and eternally available. Come and discover your real nature!
Week 1: Philosophy, Mindfulness and Wisdom, why study philosophy and the nature of wisdom. The wisdom within.
Week 2: Self-discovery. Self-knowledge. Who or what am I? What is my potential in living? How may I realise that potential? These questions are as old as mankind itself.
Week 3: Different levels of mindfulness. What is our usual state of awareness? Are there greater levels of mindfulness? If so, how may we gain access to them?
Week 4: Living in the present moment, the now. What is the potential of the present moment? We will consider the power of attention to connect with the present moment.
Week 5: What is justice and injustice? What does it mean to live justly? In particular we will look at what Plato has to say on this subject.
Week 6: How to understand and use energy well. Can we increase the energy available to us through mindfulness?
Week 7: We will consider two practical frameworks for reason. How can reason enrich our lives? How does reason help us to become more mindful?
Week 8: What is beauty? What is its purpose? Where does it come from?
Week 9: How to see unity in diversity, the common thread of life?
Week 10: How does the desire for truth show itself? How may it be satisfied?
