Discover the keys to a more just, ecologically responsible world. A talk by Ian Mason followed by Q&A Date: Saturday 14th October Time: 2pm –
First, it is important that we treat our children as people whose feelings, opinions, desires and questions matter. While we may not always be able to accommodate their preferences, we need to listen and not dismiss them out of hand. Each child is unique and has his or her own way of reasoning, and sometimes fears and worries too.
Times change, fashions change, governments change, but children remain the same. But, like us, they are influenced by what goes on around them. It is so important, therefore, to maintain stability in the home so that our children can feel secure and confident in themselves, wherever they are and whatever they have to face outside
How our introductory courses work
A tutor presents philosophical ideas, and leads a discussion based on what arises in the group. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge and experience. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.
What some of our students say...
“Absolutely loving the course!! …Really changing how I think about things and life in general.”
“...I am benefiting greatly from the content and the practical nature of it. Thank you, it is enriching my life.”
“The daily awareness exercises … have changed my thinking and I feel more relaxed about situations in the media and other aspects of my daily life.”
"The knowledge and experience that I have gained from the philosophy classes has helped me to discover more about myself and better prepare for dealing with life's daily surprises and challenges."
