Am I happy? Am I fulfilled? Can these states be lasting?
Do I feel there is too much to do and too little time? So much is important, yet what is truly essential?
In the fast pace of modern life, how can I redirect stress to find inner calm in action?
How can I be truly authentic while surrounded by so much distraction and superficiality?
Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?
Do things really happen for a reason?

Are you in a quest for answers to such fundamental questions of life ... and so many more?
Are you tired of finding an avalanche of answers and opinions on the internet that merely increases confusion?
Are you tired of looking for, but not finding, a valid "formula" for living?

Well, there is a very old "formula" for life that has been used for thousands of years: Philosophy!
Rather than a one-size-fits-all prescription, philosophy in the classical tradition is a path that urges you to think for yourself, “choose your own inner adventure” and assume your unique place in history.

In celebration of UNESCO World Philosophy Day 2016, we invite you to a seminar to discover how Philosophy, "the love of wisdom", is so much more than intellectual theories. Philosophy is the profound search for truth and meaning. It gives access to timeless wisdom, offering simple and practical principles to improve your daily life experiences and to be the architect of yourself and your life.

In this seminar, we will explore some key teachings from timeless philosophies in the classical tradition and discover the transformative power of philosophy: how to overcome our fears and stand upright in the face of our daily challenges, how to master our time and activate the path of inner peace and lasting happiness.

No matter our background or education, we can all be philosophers on a quest to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our world. We can each develop virtues and live with more wisdom, depth and purpose ... and actively contribute to building a more cohesive world by being "the change we want to see in the world".

Join us and together let's go beyond a "philosophy for thinking" and discover a practical and active Philosophy for Living!
