School of Practical Philosophy, Canberra

What is ‘Practical Philosophy’?
Welcome to the School of Practical Philosophy, Canberra! Our courses aim to provide participants with a range of practical tools that can increase our levels of happiness, awareness and self-knowledge.

Our programs are inspired by the universal teachings of a broad spectrum of thinkers from both the East and West. Through a range of programs, we offer a rich curriculum for anyone seeking greater wisdom, awareness and fulfilment.
Our courses have a practical focus, and are not simply academic. They will give you a range of practical tools that can be deployed in daily living, aimed at making your life more harmonious, enjoyable and meaningful.
What are the benefits from studying Practical Philosophy?
  • Deepening my levels of awareness and inner stillness
  • Being more content and free from stress
  • Being less driven by unhealthy emotions and reactions
  • Connecting more deeply and honestly with my true purpose and values
  • Enjoying higher self esteem and confidence
  • Experiencing more fulfilling relationships
Our Introductory Course
Our Introductory Course consists of eight practical sessions. Each session involves the participation of students. No prior knowledge or training is necessary. Core topics include:
  • Philosophy. What is it in practice?
  • Who am I really? Just body, mind, heart?
  • Wisdom and reason. Finding them within.
  • Inner stillness. Releasing your potential.
  • Awareness. Observing different levels.
  • Justice, truth and beauty. Plato’s view.
  • The present moment. Getting there.
  • Negative thinking. How to be free of it.
Here is what people who have attended our Introductory Course in Canberra said about it…
  • “It totally turned around my way of seeing the world – from repeating the same mistakes over and over again, to understanding how my mind works, and how I can more effectively manage it…”
  • “I loved it. It gave me a range of tools that I can easily apply each day. Most of all I loved the “pause” exercise.”
  • “Thanks for a great course. The facilitator was great – guided the class well, but left plenty of space for us to explore the questions ourselves. I’ll definitely be back!”
  • “Life changing – in a very un-intrusive way. I loved the way the course gently opened up new ways of seeing myself and the world, without pushing anything on us. I loved the practicality of it.”
What is the School of Practical Philosophy?
The School was founded in London in 1937 by Leon MacLaren and now has branches worldwide. Practical Philosophy courses are offered in over 70 centres in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
The School is a non-profit organisation. None of its tutors receive any remuneration for teaching. Students’ fees pay for premises, administration, advertising, etc. The knowledge belongs to no one and is freely passed on. It is a working principle of the School that tutors always remain students of their subject and attend their own philosophy groups. The School is governed by a constitution and administered by an executive committee.

Students come from all walks of life, some content to attend for only a short period, and some who continue to reap the benefits of deepening their spiritual practice over many years.
