Practical Wisdom course - Free trial lesson

Location visible to members

Practical Wisdom Course - First 3 lessons for free! Have you ever been interested in knowing more about yourself and about life? Most of us have many unanswered questions such as: what do we live for? What is the purpose of life? What is my place in this world? Where do we come from? Why do we suffer and how can we make things better? Sometimes we think there are no answers to these questions, but for any topic you can think of, there have been many very wise people who spoke about it. Aristotle talks greatly about happiness; Seneca talks about friendship and death; Plato talks about all the problems we have (even nowadays!) in society and explains wonderful things about education; Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, talks about pain and the path to set free from it, and so much more. Instead of not knowing how to solve our daily problems and going through the same experiences over and over again, making the same mistakes, and suffering for the same reasons, we could learn from these great characters on how to change our lives. We can know better, and therefore, we can be better. Practical wisdom is about learning all of this, but not only that, it’s about using this knowledge on our behalf, to improve ourselves and improve the world around us. Many of these great thinkers say that the only way to change our surroundings and the people around us is through our own example. So if we want things around us to change, we need to change ourselves first. In New Acropolis, we offer an opportunity to do this. It consists of a course of 20 lessons, each one based on great life teachings that can be applied daily, such as those mentioned above, plus: - Teachings from Ancient India; - Tibet and Helena Petrovna Blavatsky; - Egyptian wisdom; - The Stoics and their way of living; - Rome and the citizens of the world; - How to understand and make history; - Etc. We now offer the first 3 lessons of the course completely free or charge so you can experience what Practical Wisdom is about. Later, if you really like it and decide to complete the course, the fee will be only 6.000円 per month! For more information, e-mail us on: [masked] and we will try to answer any questions you may have, or just subscribe to the first free lesson and come meet the course. Hope to hear from you soon!
