Leon MacLaren - Founder

The Way of Wisdom leads a man through knowledge, and he finds in the light of that knowledge, himself; he takes to study, study of the scriptures, to deep meditation, and, of course, to practice, because he knows that knowledge is only understood in practice.

The cornerstones of Practical Philosophy are Knowledge, Meditation and Practice. For any progress to be made in realising the truth, these three aspects need to be developed together.
