Practical philosophy helps us to discover a way of understanding the world more clearly and find a more certain route to confidence, fulfillment and happiness.

Drawing on the insights of the world’s greatest thinkers, like-minded people come together to discuss and explore life’s fundamental questions such as: How to act wisely, how to be true to one’s own self, how to overcome fear.

The content draws upon the philosophies of both East and West. It is particularly influenced by non-dualistic (Advaita) philosophy which proposes that there is an underlying unity to everything. We hope you enjoy this audio.

I love listening to these podcasts when I have free time like out walking , they are very insightful, after doing the 10 week introduction to practical philosophy I was hooked so I am now doing Happiness course and these talks are just amazing and very interesting.
