Your Life, Larger.

Our introductory course, Philosophy Works, draws from the timeless wisdom of great philosophers to help you find peace and purpose in your everyday life. Ask life’s big questions and discover real-world solutions. Broaden your experience with tools for living more consciously and with greater happiness. The dynamic 10-week course is interactive and practical.

Registration is now open for the term beginning January 10th, 2022. Philosophy Works is being offered as a New Year’s gift to the community and there is no fee to attend.

What Students are Saying

Students at The School of Practical Philosophy talk about what makes the 
work done at the School practical rather 
than theoretical.

This course is not an academic survey of great philosophical ideas as one might find in a university. Rather it is an introduction to a series of proven principles that enable students to attain self-knowledge and better their lives through reasonable, compassionate living. The proof of Practical Philosophy’s effectiveness is found in personal experience.

The curriculum is inspired by the philosophy of Advaita (“not two”), and embraces a wide range of philosophical ideas, tapping into the wisdom of the great minds of East and West, including Plato, Socrates, the Buddha, Shakespeare, Emerson, and Shri Shantananda Saraswati.

Much of the learning that students experience comes from their fellow students and their own innate wisdom. The tutors, who direct the classes, are ongoing students in the School who have been practicing Practical Philosophy for many years and generously offer their own insights.

What I have learned here is not theoretical. We discuss going through our daily lives and applying new skills and ways of experiencing things that allows me to cultivate more insight, happiness, and calmness.
