Sapiens Program – Pilot Course – St Antony’s Church, Forest Gate from 18 September 2018, 7pm

Why is my life stuck? What’s missing? How can I grow as a person and flourish?

PHILOSOPHY CAN HELP!

Answering practical, down to earth questions with insight from the greatest thinkers of the Western Tradition, the Sapiens Program is an initiative of the Brothers of St John to help all search for wisdom and live more fully human lives.

Faith or no faith, philosophy can help us to search for the truth and live in a wise way. It’s the ideal way to share on deep subjects with friends who have a different spiritual outlook. All are welcome for this pilot run of the Sapiens Program.

The Sapiens Program is a five-week course with input, discussion times, interaction and optional further reading.
