How we work

How we work

1

Invigorate your path to happiness with the philosophy of  Classical Wisdom

We sift through the Greek classical works of art and literature, theatre, philosophy and mythology to unearth the ideas and values embedded within them. Laced between the words of Plato, the dialogues of Socrates, the poems of Homer or the sarcasm of Aristophanes, is a positive philosophy of life; empowering in encouraging personal freedom and true self-expression as the way of discovering the real you and finding meaning and purpose.

Classical Wisdom will fill your heart with inspiration and energize your personal journey to happiness (eudaimonia, “ευδαιμονία”).

Experience the philosophy of life through our authentic Tales of Wisdom

We pull single threads of Classical Wisdom to stitch together Tales.

Each Tale is a program singular in purpose, designed to offer you as a whole, a single life enriching experience giving you a fresh perspective on how you come to view life and find inspiration in your pursuit of happiness.

Our Tales are made up of a collection of alternate activities, flexible to change and adaptable to differing durations and locations. Quite like a story, whose chapters work together to bring forward a single meaning, the Wisdom behind our Tales is revealed in the way activities unravel rather than the individual activities themselves.

A mentor will be with you along the way to help in the unraveling of the Tale and encourage you to find enthusiasm in the voice you hide in the depths of your hearts and minds.
