Practical Philosophy

Most of our courses follow the ongoing study of Practical Philosophy. We also offer courses in Economics, Plato and Sanskrit, all classes will be online for the coming term.

New students begin with the very popular Practical Philosophy Introductory Course which is run over 10 weeks online.

Thousands of people all over Ireland have enjoyed these classes for almost 50 years. You will enjoy the company of others asking the age-old questions of philosophy and applying the words of the wise to our everyday lives.

The theme of this Introductory Course is Wisdom. Many students then go on to Part 2 and the theme of Part 2 is Happiness. Part 3 is Love and Part 4 is Presence of Mind. During Part 4 students are invited to learn mantra-based meditation.

What happens when you have finished the courses in Wisdom, Love, Happiness, Meditation, Freedom? Well, many students decide to continue the journey of self enquiry for many more terms, and even many more years. We come back especially to get support for our meditation practice, to continue to read great material and also for the excellent company of our classmates. For this reason, the school organises additional classes each term with groups students who are meditating. These classes are led by a tutor and have the same enquiry, discussion and practice format as the earlier terms, with the addition of meditation.
