The School of Practical Philosophy is presenting its popular 'Practical Philosophy & Mindfulness Course ' this Spring over 10 insightful weeks.

Mindfulness was recently featured in Time Magazine, but it has been an integral part of the School of Practical Philosophy for many years. All are invited to partake in this upcoming beginner's course to learn the tried and tested methods that can lead to freedom, mindfulness and happiness.

The Practical Philosophy & Mindfulness Course consists of ten interactive sessions. 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 learn about different mindfulness techniques in depth and how they can, when practised, benefit us in a variety of ways.


  • 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?

    The weekly sessions will run on different days of the week and students are able to vary the day of attendance from week to week.
