We offer an Introductory Course in Philosophy and Mindfulness which is followed up with subsequent courses for those students who choose to continue on such themes as Happiness, Love, Presence of Mind. A short course introducing a traditional and proven meditation practice is also available for students who complete the Introductory Course.
The School also has active interest groups studying such topics as: Sanskrit language; Economics; and the Greek philosophers.
The School of Philosophy is made up entirely from the student body of approximately 250 students. There are no paid teaching or administrative staff. Every student originally attended the Introductory Course and continued on attending subsequent courses, in some cases for many years, and senior students are also our senior tutors.
The School is not owned wholly or in part by any other organisation, nor does it own any other organisation. Its activities are governed by an Executive whose members are elected from senior students of the School.
We enjoy a relationship with the Ficino School, an independent primary school, and we share use of the villa at 27 Esplanade Rd, Mt Eden with the Ficino School.
