FAQ's

1What is The Key To Inner Wisdom course?
The Key to Inner Wisdom is a unique 12 weeks introductory course for philosophy as a way of life. This course, under different names and with small variations, is studied in all our branches around the world (currently more than 600 centers worldwide). It can be taken as a stand alone course or as an introduction and a gateway to our philosophy program. The course integrates classes, practical exercises and Socratic dialogues, revolving around the study and teachings of wisdom from the different civilizations of the world, ranging from India, Greece, Ancient Egypt, Tibet and more. Through an eclectic approach we extract the best teachings of each culture, resulting in a practical synthesis that can be used to improve ourselves and our lives.
2What are the goals of the course?
Just as our course’s motto say: Discover, Awaken, Transform. That is, discover ourselves, the latent qualities we have within us, awaken them through practice, and transform ourselves and as a result, our society as well.
3What is the difference between this philosophy course and other academic philosophy courses?
New Acropolis puts emphasis on philosophy as a way of life and on the integration of knowledge and experience. The aim of our course is not to increase our knowledge about philosophy but to follow in the footsteps of the great philosophers, increasing our awareness, clarity, self-knowledge and initiating a process of self-transformation.
4In the busy lifestyle of the 21st century, why should a person care enough about philosophy to devote time and effort to study and practice it?
We can have a full schedule, but is it a fulfilling one? All of us will agree that we need to devote time and effort to ourselves, but when we speak about dedicating time to ourselves, what exactly do we mean? Is leisure time, entertainment or relaxation enough? What about nourishing our souls? Our inner selves? If we don’t ask ourselves the timeless philosophical questions of who am I? What is the purpose of life? Where am I going? Then, how can we choose where to go and how to get there? The practice of philosophy allows us to find answers to these questions and more, and adds depth to everything we do.
5Is philosophy practical in our everyday lives?
Yes. It’s a mistake to think that philosophy is only an intellectual exercise. The aim of philosophy is to help us look for the cause of things in order to create a consistent and sustainable change in ourselves and our society. Philosophy as a way of life gives us practical, applicable tools to Be The Change we wish to see in the world and to initiate a proactive approach to life.
6Who is this course for?
All people who are seeking self-transformation, who wish to make a change for better their community, and who feel there is more to life, beyond the illusions of the “Matrix”… There is no need for any former knowledge in philosophy.
7Who are the teachers?
The teachers in New Acropolis are first of all students. We believe that in order to get closer to wisdom and transmit it to others, one should first live it. Not as an intellectual and mental practice but truly and deeply live and experience it. A teacher is first and foremost a disciple, who learns from life’s experiences and study in our advanced study program.
8What is the course format?
The course consists of 12 classes which are given once a week, in a 2 hour interactive presentation (including intermission) at the New Acropolis school. A special exercise seminar is offered during the course and focuses mainly on practice through experience.
