About the course

Every human being has a body for action, a heart for loving and reason for knowing. The challenge that will be addressed in this course is how these three ways can unfold together to reveal a life of great service, love and certainty. The French philosopher Pierre Hadot, said: “During this period, philosophy was a way of life … Philosophy was a mode of existing-in-the-world, which had to be practiced at each instant, and the goal of which was to transform the whole of the individual’s life.”


In ancient times, philosophy was not seen as a merely academic pursuit but as a way of living.

  • How can philosophy become a way of life?

  • What are the principles of day to day living that will withstand pressure and change?

  • What is the relationship between balance and rhythm? How can we live in a large, universal world instead of a tiny house?
