Welcome to The School of Philosophy Kingston

We offer a ten week 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.    See Video

Find a centre of calm right in your own home and enrich your daily life by discovering a new kind of connectedness even whilst socially distancing or in self-isolation.

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 that we do not need to add new information or beliefs to our mind, but to bring about a shift in consciousness, that is to say, to awaken.

We are a long established charity - the teaching is free, our staffing is voluntary and our fees are kept to a minimum. All are welcome, whatever age, culture or background. No prior knowledge is required. Want to know more? Click on these links for course outline, what people say about it, FAQ's.
