Our world is changing faster than ever. Our daily lives are rushed, our attention is pulled in many directions. The modern world can distract us from what really matters… until it’s too late.

Philosophy gives you the space to contemplate, find peace of mind and focus on the questions that really matter in life. Philosophy is an activity, not a specialised body of knowledge. By reading and thinking about philosohy, you’re doing philosophy.

Seneca wrote: “Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only those are really alive. For they not only keep a good watch over their own lifetimes, but they annex every age to theirs.”
