Our online Stage 1 course has a mix of theory and practice, an experiential dimension, and all our foundational strategies for doing philosophical enquiry with others.

Our online courses have received feedback 100% of which was 'outstanding' or 'good' for all aspects of the course.

Being with so many philosophically minded people was very affirming and it gave me so much energy to start new things. The course itself was fantastic and a real eye opener—I can't praise it highly enough. Thank you for what must have been the immense amount of time and effort in putting this together—it is a truly wonderful thing
