GENERAL INFO ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM

The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. An intense sense of Life must always accompany every true student. There can be no Wisdom without an ever increasing sense of Wonder.

Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature. The message which each tree, flower, animal, meadow, sea, sky, and cloud has, must be listened to and understood.

Monday to Friday
Meditation: 8.00 to 8.30 a.m.
Classes: 8.30 to 11 a.m. and 3.30 to 5 p.m.
