Since 1960, the Auckland School of Philosophy has offered courses to people wanting to change their lives for the better. The courses take a very practical approach influenced by the wisdom, teachings and traditions of both the East and West. No prior study or understanding of philosophy is required to attend.
The 9-week introductory course, The Wisdom Within, is held at a range of times and days, onsite at locations in Auckland and Hamilton, as well as online via the popular and easy medium of Zoom. Currently, in-room meetings are suspended while Covid Restrictions remain in place.
In each group session, tutors and students discuss themes from a variety of philosophies and wisdom traditions. These can be applied directly and practically to your own individual life experiences. A tried and trusted mindfulness practice is introduced and maintained throughout the course.
The Wisdom Within is followed by courses exploring major philosophical themes such as Happiness, Love, Freedom, Presence of Mind, and Meditation.
