Philosophy for Life

At this stage the student is committed to Philosophy as a way of life and entry into some of the following groups is by invitation only. Other groups are open to the general public for a fee. (The fee is stated if this is the case).

Every course offered in the School is a stand-alone course with its own theme, its own focus and its own transformative practices. But they work together, with each course building on previous courses to open up the diverse field of human nature; to better understand the world in which we live; and to practice ways of realizing the full potential of the world in which we live and ourselves as individuals living in and through that world

Pre-requisite to the Philosophy for Life Courses:
Meditation
Philosophy and Mindfulness

Pure Love and Mindfulness and one of either
Presence of Mind OR
Freedom
and at least 2 of the Way of Philosophy Titles and Philosophy and Universal Order.

orange  Other Courses of Interest to Members

The following courses are offered from time to time depending on numbers of those interested, and the pre-requisite is that the student must have completed at least one of the courses in the Philosophy for Life series.

orange  Sanskrit

Students of the School of Practical Philosophy are encouraged to take up the study of Sanskrit, particularly those who have reached the ‘Philosophy for Life’ courses.

Language is a means to bring individuals together. Aptly referred to as the ‘Divine Language’, Sanskrit has been perfected by the ancient sages not just as a mode of human communication but also as a medium through which one can understand oneself and one’s surroundings. All of us are gifted with an innate ability to absorb the beauty and sophistication associated with this great language. What is required is a natural enthusiasm for, and participation in, the study of Sanskrit in the good company of others.

An On-Line Beginners Sanskrit Group is available to all students enrolled in a Philosophy Main Stream course. Enrolments for this course is through the New York School's website: ON-LINE Sanskrit Course Term 6 Commencing Thursday, Feb 7 at 5.30pm Perth time.

orange  Philosophy of Plato

orange  A Course in Miracles
