Practical Wisdom Workshops are offered in the belief that the timeless wisdom traditions still have relevance in today's world and when applied, produce unique initiatives.

This Winter, Practical Wisdom Workshop has lined up an exciting series of passionate presenters, who have all found inspiration and conviction from studying and practising the tenets of wisdom texts over many years.

This is your opportunity to engage with practical wisdom and discover how it could be applied in your daily life!

 

The first event of the series is presented by James Webster, who has been a member of the Melbourne School of Philosophy for over twenty years.

Held on Saturday 15th June, 10am at Melbourne School of Philosophy, Hawthorn, the engaging two-hour session will explore our relationship with the land.

 

The Intimate Relationship Between Humanity and the Earth.

How do we see our relationship with land? Why have people through the ages called land 'Mother Earth'? Where does Justice fit in? How does this affect Economics? How does Economics affect us?

Justice is the ethical basis of Economics, and our understanding of our relationship to the Earth is critical to realizing that Justice. Justice in Economics goes hand in hand with all other freedom.

There is a right and lawful way to relate to nature, which, if well-understood and followed offers a natural way of living in harmony with each other in our sharing of nature (and enjoying a naturally fulfilling life). Practical philosophy indeed!


 

In the past five years, James has enthusiastically studied Justice in Economics including offering presentations, facilitating a study group, joining an Economics NGO and occasionally meeting with Members of Parliament.

Come and meet James and question and discuss this subject matter with like-minded people. Sessions are limited to 20 attendees, so early bookings are advised.
