What we're about

Welcome to the meetup group of New Acropolis (India) at Bangalore.

We take this opportunity to introduce you to New Acropolis, an international non profit organization of a philosophical, cultural and social nature.

In the words of our international director, New Acropolis came into being to give a new opportunity to philosophy to come to life again; philosophy in the sense of the eternal quest for knowledge, a quest for the root causes of things, a search for answers to those questions which we human beings are constantly asking ourselves.

We look forward to have you join us for our upcoming events and a peek into the course on Practical Philosophy: http://acropolis.org.in/living-philosophy-course-bangalore/ (http://www.acropolis.org.in/living-philosophy)

Online Introductory session to Living Philosophy

Online event

Living Philosophy - Discover, Awaken, Transform Living Philosophy is a 19-week foundation course in Practical Philosophy that brings the wisdom of ancient Eastern and Western philosophies to inspire us to lead more harmonious lives in today’s times. Philosophy was traditionally meant to be a practical means for the universal human quest for a life of meaning, balance, and fulfillment. When Philosophy is practical, it is educational, helping us to know and improve ourselves. Through the 19 sessions (1 session of 2 hours per week), the course touches different practical, universal, and timeless concepts of life from the wisdom of cultures and civilizations of the ancient world, with the perspective of how these can become practical tools to make a profound, lasting difference in our lives today. The Living Philosophy journey traverses three sections: Know Thyself Starting with human nature - to understand ourselves and the means to give an expression to our best human potential. How can we deal effectively with change and uncertainty in our lives? Perspectives from the philosophies of ancient India, Greece, Tibet, Rome, Egypt, and China about Human nature, happiness, and freedom. Human Relationships and Society The quality of our life depends greatly on the quality of our relationships. What can we learn from cultures like ancient Greece that will help us develop deeper relationships, understand the fabric of society and find our place in it? Key topics include principles of Ethical Leadership, Justice, and Education. Evolution of Humanity: What is our future? The zoomed-out picture: As humanity, where have we come from, where are we going, and what is the role of the individual in the larger scheme of life? Wisdom from eclectic philosophical sources to understand what it means to be human, through the concept of evolution of consciousness. Ecology as a key to Harmony: harmonizing our actions in accordance with nature.
