Is philosophy restricted to books and concepts or is it possible to live the wisdom of the ancient masters in our everyday life? Living Philosophy seeks answers to these very questions of the contemporary world. Philosophy as a way of life begins foremost with an inward journey and when practiced, it finds its true essence of transformation of the self and that of the world around us.

"Living Philosophy" is the foundation of a journey to discover and experience the deeper esoteric concepts of self, nature and humanity. The sessions provide a glimpse into the sources of wisdom with a comparative study of Classical philosophies across ancient cultures and civilizations.

The foundation course on practical philosophy is the first level of study of Philosophy being taught at numerous centers of New Acropolis International Organization in over 60 countries for many years.
