Educational charity

As the School of Philosophy Midlands is a registered Educational Charity (not-for-profit) and all tutors, assistants, admin, maintenance and refreshment teams are all volunteers from in and around Birmingham, the school still has overheads it has to pay such as rent, electric, advertising, phone, rates, etc.

To help towards us continuing and being able to pay for the up-keep of the school we are happy to receive any and all donations, no matter how small or large.

How it works on our educational courses

A tutor presents material, and leads a discussion based on what arises. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.

The present moment

“This course ‘woke me up’, particularly to the present moment. Learning to use the ‘full stop’ between daily events and pausing, rather than everything running in to one continuum”

Very practical

“I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. It has been very practical and has given me lots of tools and exercises to use in my daily life. Coming back each week and feeding back to the group has reinforced what I have learned and given me extra pointers”.
