Practical Philosophy

This inspiring 10-week course in practical philosophy will give you the tools to become more mindful, to live life more consciously, and to feel more alive. The course explores the real meaning of wisdom, spirituality and the nature of the human being. 

Ideas, inspiration and material are drawn from the great philosophical traditions of the East and the West to help you develop inner calm and peace of mind, discover greater freedom and happiness and fully realise your potential.

It is for anyone who has ever asked themself "Who am I? How can I be at peace? How may I realise my full potential? Where is true freedom to be found? What is justice? How can I be truly happy? What is the pupose of my life? What am I doing here?" 

The course is for those who want to expand their world, their thinking, and their view of themselves. It demonstrates that within each of us there is an inexhaustible source of nourishment, well-being and understanding and that this holds the key to a happy, fulfilling and peaceful life.


Wisdom, unity and inner peace

The basis of the course is the proposition that everything stems from unity, and that anyone can achieve self-knowledge and inner peace. From there, anyone may find true happiness, live more consciously and fulfil their potential.Misty hills - B - 2 - 490 px

The classes put students in touch with these inner resources through the presentation of key principles, followed by lively discussions between students of the experiences they have had in putting the principles into practice.

The course is broad in scope, non-academic, and is intended to be of real practical use. There are no exams to pass. Following the introductory course there are further opportunities for anyone wishing to deepen their studies.

The courses are organised by the well-established School of Philosophy, an organisation that has been offering training in Belgium for over 40 years.
