But Philosophy is much more than we think.
It is the love of wisdom, a path that leads to more tranquility, happiness, better decision making, more authenticity and self realization.
Our introductory program explores the teachings of the major schools of philosophy from around the world, with emphasis on the practical application of those teachings. It aims to integrate great themes of Eastern and Western thought of the major civilizations throughout history. This is an exciting and dynamic course and covers the mysteries of the human being and life through the wisdom of ancient India, Tibet, Egypt ancient Greece and Rome, Buddhist philosophy and more.
