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. 

The course explores what it means to be a happy and fulfilled human being in the world today. You will have an opportunity to hear and practise what the wise from both east and west actually say and through everyday observation put their words and ideas to the test.

Practical Philosophy embraces the search for self-knowledge, happiness, love, freedom and the simple joy of being - not just as wise concepts but in one's own experience. It presents a real opportunity for Self-discovery and for restoring the balance in your life.

It can reveal a centre of calm within yourself and a new kind of connectedness so you might begin to make life make sense. You will also have the company and support of a delightful group of like-minded people.

We are a long-established charity; our wonderful staff are all very experienced and offer their time voluntarily. All are welcome, whatever age, culture or background. No prior knowledge is required.
