blank The Aim of Philosophy

Mindfulness is the working surface of practical philosophy. It is mindful awareness of the current state of the physical world, the mental world, and the emotional world. The present moment illuminates the way to freedom of speech, thought and action and everlasting happiness. Established in the now, free of limitations and doubt, the individual can act creatively with love instead of reacting habitually. The Aim of Philosophy courses in the School of Practical Philosophy are 'True Happiness and Mindfulness', 'Pure Love and Mindfulness', ‘Presence of Mind' and 'Freedom'

Pre-requisite to the Aim of Philosophy Courses:is

The Wisdom Within - Philosophy and Mindfulness


yellow  Presence of Mind

Without awareness in and of the present moment, it’s impossible to see the way forward. We cannot act freely, so we react with knowledge from the past or desire for the future. Either way, we are simply recycling experience. The thing is to be, here and now, instead of constantly becoming something other than what we are.

Only the individual can desire, only the individual can labour, only the individual can know, and only the individual can choose. The Presence of Mind 11 week course aims at awakening the individual’s ability to transform their world by enacting their sovereign freedom in the present moment.
