This is the flagship course of New Acropolis India that invites the aspiring philosopher to a life of adventure. In its Special Edition, the course spans about 5 months and will be taught by the National Director of New Acropolis in India.
It is an invitation to embark upon a journey of ancient cultures and classical traditions to understand the causes and wisdom of their most audacious and valiant pursuits that we have available as our legacy today. Be it the pyramids of Egypt, The arduous trials of the Buddha in his pursuit of truth or Arjun's conquest over himself in the Bhagavad Gita.
The course guides the participant to start developing a direction to navigate the many choices that life presents. This is to truly participate in "Living Philosophy", a way where the investigation is to apply the learnings and allow a transformed attitude with which to live.
To bring a positive change needs us to face challenges with courage and freedom. This course has the ingredients to imagine how we may be the ones that champion this change, which necessarily first starts with ourselves.
The successful completion of this course is the first step and qualifies the participant to continue this journey of investigation with the scholastic program of School of Philosophy of New Acropolis and pursue the path to be a member of the school.
