Is it possible to live by the wisdom of the ancient masters in our everyday life?
Living Philosophy is an opportunity to join a journey to discover and experience the deeper esoteric concepts of self, nature and humanity.
New Acropolis is an evolving philosophical community of like minded people that foster an active and practical approach to Living Philosophy with an acute awareness of the World around us.
The course provides a glimpse into the sources of wisdom with a comparative study of Classical philosophies across ancient cultures and civilisations. Through the classes, we unfold the path of philosophy from Knowledge to Wisdom and from Learning to Living, as we uncover the mysteries of human consciousness and development.
This unique program of Living Philosophy is a pre-requisite for membership to the organisation as well to continue subsequent advance programs of philosophy. It is structured into 15 weekly sessions which are a combination of both lectures and practical exercises.
