Second Annual Symposium on Practical Philosophy
Cultivating Self Knowledge, Solitude & Reflection in the Digital Age
This symposium offers guidance and inspiration to live with greater self-reliance and discover the wisdom within each of us.
Our study will come from the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and the Dialogues of Plato.
Their words are beacons of love and reason, which remind us of our essential nature and the fundamental Unity in all things.
All participants will learn…
1. to listen to his/her inner voice and cultivate reason;
2. contemplation and to rest in the stillness of Pure Being;
3. to consider how to simplify the life.
Original cabaret songs based on Plato’s Dialogues will be performed in class to highlight the study.
Come away from the day with a good impulse for a most noble purpose:
To Cultivate Self Knowledge!
