Welcome to The School of Philosophy Kingston

A course in Practical Philosophy

The aim of philosophy is to set you free. Free from everyday pressures and worries; free to grow and be yourself; free to discover the unique, extraordinary person that you really are. 

Find a centre of calm within yourself and enrich your daily life by discovering a new kind of connectedness and begin to make sense of it all even in these strange times of the pandemic.

Our ten session course explores life and the creation and puts to the test the words of the wise from both east and west. Through applying mindful awareness to every moment wisdom shows us how we can be truly happy, conscious and free. It is inspired by the great traditions of philosophy especially 'Advaita' non-dual philosophy which encourages the use of reason and self-reliance so students learn to access wisdom within themselves in the moment.

The central message of the great wisdom teachings of humankind is to bring about a shift in awareness, that is to say, to awaken.
