When asked to sum up all philosophical commandments, the Ancient Greek Philosopher Socrates replied: “Know yourself”. Self-knowledge matters so much because it helps us to get an accurate sense of what we need to be satisfied, which means we can make wiser choices, especially around love and work.

What is ‘How to Develop Self-Knowledge’?

Self-awareness isn’t always easy. We can be sidelined by fear, a reluctance to look within and a culture which keeps us distracted and unaware. This class guides us to take key steps towards self-knowledge. Through exercises and conversation we reach insights in a remarkably short space of time – excited by the task of understanding the person we may be a stranger to; ourselves.
