After the Introductory Course New Acropolis offers a programme of studies in successive levels which links sciences, art, religions and philosophies in a comparative way.
Introduction to Eastern and Western WisdomThis course follows on from the Introductory Course and looks at Eastern and Western traditions for answers to the big questions of life, such as the enigma of God, the structure of the universe and the stages of human evolution. Other topics include the comparative study of religions, the schools of perennial philosophy throughout the ages and teachings regarding the subtle bodies of man.
PsychologyThis course also follows on from the Introductory Course and runs parallel to the course on Eastern and Western Wisdom. It is both a practical and theoretical exploration of our 'psyche' and its faculties: consciousness, attention, memory, imagination, will, etc. The timeless maxim "Man know thyself" and the questions of how we can develop our potential and master ourselves are the key-notes of this course, which includes practical exercises for self-development.
Theological SymbolismThis subject consists of a series of courses that explore the sacred symbols of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, India, China, Japan, the Mayas, Incas, Aztecs, etc., as well as the symbolism of plants, minerals, animals and architecture. The aim of the course is to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of the symbolic dimension for the human being and to enable the student to gradually use symbols as bridges to perceive the intelligible world.
