Get a taste of Philosophy

3rd May - 18th July Follow instructions on page to get the £10 taster term

This 10-week course uses Philosophy to put life into focus. It starts from that which unites human beings.  There is no shortage of what divides us in today’s uncertain world.  But using mindfulness practices, and universal teachings from spiritual teachers, past and present, East and West, we can so enhance our day to day lives that peace, well–being, contentment and light start to permeate our being.
