For 15 years the tutors in the School have presented talks to the public throughout Ireland showing the application of practical philosophy to a variety of topics and problems that we meet in everyday life. These have proved to be immensely popular.

Tutors present a Spring, Summer and Winter series of lectures. This Easter we examine such important issues as Acceptance, Mindfulness, Limitless Intelligence, the 3 Fold Nature of Man, the Natural Way of Living, Being True to Yourself, Change, the Final Destination and Socrates' Swan.

You are invited to attend what is a challenging look at these important subjects in the light of Practical Philosophy.
