Event description

Description

To prepare ourselves and the next generation for a rapidly changing world we need to be more grounded than ever in the timeless values and principles that have provided a stable point of reference in the past.

Many of the problems we are facing today will not be solved by more money or technology. Most solutions to our current challenges will require a change in our actions, which can only be sustainable if brought about by an inner change. How can we bring about this inner change? If our actions are a result of our thoughts, then we need to change the way we think about many things.

Philosophy has for thousands of years been a valid path to explore our thinking, to search for the underlying principles of life, to put them into practice and to develop our inner potential. Philosophy as a way of life is not only an intellectual enterprise but an education for the head, the heart and the hands.
