I guess it wouldn't make me so angry if it was just a bunch of delusional adults - but alas, that is not the case...another bunch adults, ill-informed or delusional themselves, entrust their children to them! I know, that's the worst of it. Current pupils have been on here saying how wonderful the ...

Well, to be honest, it didn't really make me angry. On one level it's kind of funny because it's so ridiculous. On another level, I feel incredibly sorry for all those young SES wives and mothers struggling to fit in with this kind of crap and failing miserably. The irony is that the main pedlar of ...

Sheila Rosenberg

Has anyone else read 'Sheila Rosenberg: A Renaissance Lady'? It encapsulates in one volume everything the SES stands for and provides the context for this website for anyone who has not come into contact with the SES. I think it should be required reading for unsuspecting parents who send their chil...

Meditation in the day schools

Has anyone listened to the CD 'Philosophy and Parenting: The Teenage Years', a lecture and Q&A session delivered by Shane Mulhall? I bought it some time ago (whilst still under the influence) and dug it out the other day. There is the usual stuff from the Shankaracharya, as already discussed, wh...

I'd just like to pick up on some comments made by CeliaR and NYC. NYC wrote: No one ever told me to my face that women must be reincarnated as men before self-realization could happen, but there's a conservative Brahmanical interpretation of advaita that teaches it. I'm not familiar with the text yo...

I'm disappointed that AntonR doesn't feel he can expand on this BB on the thoughts of the Indian follower of Advaita Vedanta. I have a book called 'Vedantic Meditation' by David Frawley. In there it says, 'Vedanta is a simple philosophy. It says that our true Self, what it calls the Atman , is God. ...

I guess the words set to the music would be fun. Is it very dreadful?

It was in Sept 1980, Celia and I had a private meeting with an Indian follower of Advaita Vedanta, a person who lived and breathed it. I have hesitated to put on this BB what he had to say to us about it all. We gained a much broader understanding of Advaita Vedanta from him and continue to respect...

bespoke such scope ......could be a new tongue twister for our times perhaps? The children could learn it with attention and joy. What a load of syrupy twaddle........what a find!! Any chance of posting 'O Thou Lord Supreme' on this BB? Can't seem to find it in the shops. As soon as they get it in ...

Probably the most important thing that could happen is a real discussion about what a philosophy school should be like. As part of that I'm going to discuss all of the issues besetting the School at the moment with my students next term. Well, chittani, if that's what you're going to discuss next t...

Hi Ben, Good choice with the Latin. I studied it to O-Level and really enjoyed it. It gave me a good grounding in grammar and was also very helpful for learning other languages, especially those with a case structure, e.g. German, Russian. Pity it's in decline. I think it's a must for the serious li...

mm-, I?m with you. The party faithful will turn out to the meeting in force and it will be a whitewash. After all, senior members of the SES have weathered one PR catastrophe. I think they?re subtle and cunning enough to weather another. They?ve got too much to lose otherwise. Not all that long ago,...

I've just watched the Channel 4 report from the link and I feel incensed. Boddy's contribution was nothing but a load of weasel words. 'May have occurred', may have occurred?? Has occurred, you shyster. 'Overzealous'? Good God. Hearing the accounts of cruelty was even worse than reading about them o...

Following on from Free Thinker's post about Leon McLaren being treated as some kind of demi-god, there is a similar phenomenon with the head of the school I used to attend. He has his own chair (with arms!!); his own cup and saucer; he is waited on; when he walks into a room where there is a seated ...
