“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” – Mother Teresa

The Georgia Philosophy Foundation offers the opportunity for lifelong spiritual and philosophical exploration.

The classes are not intended to be abstract and academic but very real and practical. The aim is to hear the teachings, apply them in daily life, and then discuss what was discovered at the following class.

The Introductory Course is free and runs for 10 weeks. It is held on Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, with a break for refreshment.

Thereafter, the cost is $100 a term for 1st and 2nd Year and $125 for 3rd Year onwards. ($50 for high school and college students).

We welcome anyone who has an interest in finding out more about the classes. No prior experience or understanding is required.

1st Year
Students will hear material drawn from a wide range of sources. Topics discussed include happiness, freedom, the nature of truth, beauty and love. Students will also learn practical exercises to promote stillness and clarity of mind.

2nd Year
Material continues in a similar manner. In addition to attending regular classes, students are offered the practice of meditation, and will also have the opportunity to attend residential weekends and Saturday study mornings.

3rd Year and Onwards
At this point the classes focus on the Advaita Vedanta Philosophy material based on the conversations between Maharaja Sri Shantananda Sarasvati and Leon Maclaren and the more recent conversations between their respective successors. (See ‘About Us’  for more information on this).

The Georgia Philosophy Foundation is also a place where students can expand and share any interests related to the Advaita teaching. Past lectures and classes have included topics such as Philosophy and Quantum Physics, Natural Law, Ayurveda, and classical Indian dance. There is also the opportunity to learn Sanskrit.
