Longstanding practical philosophy students taking a break during a residential at Waterperry
Some students want to continue their studies after they have completed the introductory course. The School caters for this, offering additional courses and the chance to penetrate further the great questions of life.
The next few terms examine the subjects broadly covered in the introductory course in more depth.
For those who wish to continue beyond that, the study increasingly turns to the deeper penetration of the philosophy of Advaita.
This study can go on for as long as the individual wishes. Each term has the capacity to add more for those whose interest continues.
In time, this includes the practice of meditation, and residential weeks and weekends at one of the school’s residential centres at Waterperry House in Oxfordshire and Nanpantan Hall in Leicestershire.
In the longer term, students are also invited to provide two or three hours’ voluntary service each week during term time. The key is that this service is willingly given for the sake of all.
Some stay for very many years, becoming part of a much valued, established, open, voluntary body of people based on mutual respect and a continuing interest in philosophical enquiry.
The hope is that, however long or short a time people may wish to study in the School, everyone will find something of true worth to themselves.
