Learn to apply philosophy to your life in everyday moments

Mindfulness has been an integral part of the School of Practical Philosophy in Perth for many years.

This spring, the experienced and knowledgeable tutors invite you to join the School of Practical Philosophy's popular Mindfulness & Practical Philosophy course, either face to face or online. 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.

"The exercises presented in the course have really changed my life. Just learning to rest in the present moment eliminated a ton of stress from my life, and has certainly improved my relationships and sense of well-being."

In our uncertain times, there is no better time to embrace 'The Wisdom Within'! Through greater wisdom, we will discover enduring happiness and how to live more mindfully with greater purpose every day.


 

FACE-TO-FACE

Courses commence 21 September 2021.

The weekly 2 hours 30 minute face to face sessions will take place on:

Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Southcare, 19 Pether Road, Manning 6152

OR

Tuesday and Saturday mornings at Currambine Community Centre, 64 Delamere Road, Currambine 6028

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: The Wisdom Within. We will explore this further in this session.

Week 2: Know Thyself. Self-discovery. Self-knowledge. Who or what am I? What is my potential in living? What is my nature? These questions are as old as mankind itself.

Week 3: Being Awake. Different levels of awareness. What is our usual state of awareness? Are there greater levels of awareness? If so, how may we gain access to them? In the last few years, Mindfulness has become increasingly well-known. We will consider aspects of this on both weeks 3 and 4.

Week 4: Attending to the present moment. What is the potential of the present moment? We will consider the power of attention to connect with the present moment.

Week 5: Living Justly. 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: The Threefold Energy. How to understand and use energy well. Can we increase the energy available to us?

Week 7: The Light of Reason. We will consider the purpose of reason and how it may be strengthened.

Week 8: The Power of Beauty. What is beauty? What is its purpose? Can we experience beauty more widely and deeply?

Week 9: Unity in Diversity. How to see unity in diversity, the common thread of life?

Week 10: The Desire for Truth. How does the desire for truth show itself? How may it be satisfied? Review the term.
