Timetable for Spring 2020

We have introduced a new system for the first five terms of Practical Philosophy to make attendance as easy, affordable and accessible as possible.
As of January 2020, students can attend any of the first five courses; namely Wisdom, Happiness, Love, Presence of Mind and Freedom in any order and in any of our four locations.
We have also set the fee for each ten-week course at $125, a 50% discount on our regular fees of $250 per term.
Where Wisdom is offered, it is always best to start with this foundation course if at all possible. And it is necessary to complete all five courses before moving on to the next level in the school where the practice of mantra based meditation is introduced.

We sincerely hope you will take advantage of this new arrangement if you have been unable to continue due to distance, day of the week or unavailability of the next course.


Our regular fees are $250 per person for a ten week term. We offer a reduced fee for the first five terms as an incentive to new students. All courses are 10 weeks
