Discover time-tested methods that lead to happiness


"Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention, knowing where our attention is at any given time and being able to choose where to direct it, being able to let it rest where it should rest." Mindfulness for Life - Dr Craig Hassed

The School of Practical Philosophy's popular 'Mindfulness & Practical Philosophy Course' returns this Winter.

This enlightening course consists of 10 sessions designed to help you discover time-tested methods that lead to freedom, mindfulness and happiness. Each session will explore how we all can practice 'mindfulness' in our daily activities and achieve a state of peace by removing negative emotions from our lives.

Under the guidance of the knowledgeable School of Practical Philosophy tutors, students will uncover how wisdom leads to happiness, learn to live more mindfully with greater purpose and how to harness the power of attention.

Course Content:

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?
