yellow  Freedom

The desire for freedom is common, however what is the true nature of freedom, how may it be experienced fully and constantly, how is freedom lost, how does this apply both to individuals and to societies?

This 11-week course explores the nature of freedom and our preconceived ideas which may limit our sense of freedom.

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.
