The Sage Level of the Wisdom School includes over 1000 hours of in-depth courses, workshops and mini-trainings in contemplative studies, wisdom traditions, yoga philosophy, and mindbody integration for lifetime learners, seekers, yoga teachers, therapists & scholar-practitioners.

BECOME A SAGE

In 2015, Embodied Philosophy opened its virtual doors on a mission to disseminate the deeper teachings of contemplative traditions. Soon we had built a community of scholar-practitioners offering courses and educational experiences on Indian philosophies, yoga, consciousness studies, embodied practices, esoteric wisdom and the human spiritual condition.

Yes, I'm ready!

After over seven years of non-stop publishing and course offerings, our library is now a robust resource of the deepest, most profound wisdom education on the internet. Joining the Wisdom School as a Sage member is an investment in lifetime learning and a step forward on the path of developing skills to weather the storms of the moment and those yet to come.

Here's what you will become after starting your Sage Wisdom School membership...

1

An inspired and dedicated practitioner.

2

Without an established foundation of daily contemplative practice, our habits and limiting beliefs about ourselves and the world take over. We lack that ledge of freedom.


A wise and informed student.

Treating life like there's nothing important to learn after high school or university other than vocational training is one of the roots of our modern challenges, as we are taught to replace the search for meaning with money.

3

Part of a revolutionary contemplative community.



BECOME A SAGE

Your Practice will till the soil of your awareness so that you can lead life not from the hard shell of accumulated discomfort, but from the wise and subtle wisdom within.


Your Process of deep contemplative study of ancient texts and wisdom traditions will provide a supportive framework to empower your practice and anchor your insights.


Without a community of kindred spirits, the journey of contemplative living can feel lonely and isolating. We need a reassuring and affirming connection to others to continually reflect back to us why we chose this path. We empower each other.

Participating in contemplative community is an act of Progress. As other forms of community break down, you are part of the solution – a shining example for others.

Our programming has become a go-to resource for yoga teachers and practitioners, therapists, wellness facilitators, scholars, researchers and spiritual leaders.

85+ On-Demand Courses & New Courses Every Month.

Discover over 1000 hours of continuing contemplative training.

Quarterly Virtual Retreats & Bi-Annual Challenges.

Stay accountable and empowered by our team of faculty and friends.

The Members' Circle: A Thriving Online Community Space.

Our curated learning pathways are a response to our need to organize our vast collection of videos and educational resources into sequences of study that are accessible and easily digestable by our students. Join a community of students and faculty for one of our monthly learning journeys, begin a learning journey from a previous month or build one of your own and invite other students to study with you.

Curated learning journeys from our in-house editors, delivered with supplementary educational resources and events every month.

An ever-evolving library of yoga classes and subtle practice sessions to keep you accountable to your daily dose of contemplative connection.

We believe in keeping yoga wise and preserving a rigorous attention to the wisdom, worldviews, sciences and subtleties that help make yoga such a transformative experience for so many. You'll take yoga classes with one our educated, culturally-sensitive, and insightful instructors. Whether the teacher’s approach is informed by neuroscience, devotional wisdom, meditation, classical teachings or activism - our teachers are grounded in something more than the purely physical.

Conversational With-Ins hosted monthly to talk about the important questions and challenges that arise in the modern spiritual life.

The “With-In” is a signature community offering at Embodied Philosophy, where we explore important topics stemming from the relationship between ancient wisdom, contemplative teachings and modern life. Coming together as a community in this way, we get a chance to hear each other's voices and discover just how diverse, knowledgable, and deeply committed our community is to living a contemplative life. Here, we learn from each other.

"Every faculty member is incredibly knowledgable on their subject matter, but even more so passionate about sharing that knowledge, and overwhelmingly dedicated to ensuring comprehension on behalf of their students."

Jim

"I was incredibly astonished by how insightful, accomplished, and passionate many of the teachers are. What a privilege to learn from such a cohort of amazing people!"

Turk

"I really appreciate being exposed to so many of the different perspectives of philosophy that are related to Yoga and philosophy that originated in India – Samkhya, Vedanta, Tantra, Tibetan Buddhism, Goddess traditions. It’s wonderful to learn from teachers who so clearly love their subject."

Can I cancel the membership if I join?

If you cancel after the 7 days have passed, you can discontinue your membership so that you won't be charged the next period. You will then have access to your membership offerings until the end of the paid membership period (6 months or 1 year).

What is the difference between Seeker and Sage Levels of the Wisdom School?

The Sage Level is the Premium membership level, which gives you access to all of Seeker content (yoga classes, lectures and seminar talks) plus the archive of our on-demand in-depth courses (currently over 86 courses) and unlimited access to our future live and pre-recorded Wisdom School courses.

Is this what I need?

If you are a seeker looking for more depth of knowledge about a wide variety of wisdom traditions and practices; if you are a current or aspiring contemplative leader, yoga teacher, or spiritual coach looking for more training; if you are a scholar-practitioner looking for kindred spirits; if you are a therapist or wellness provider looking for more tools and techniques; if you are any of these, or even if you simply love learning, this is the place for you.

What is the ongoing experience of the Wisdom School like?

Every week you will receive an email from our Members Editor, telling you about what's happening that week. Each month, you will be invited into a new learning journey that takes you through a curated educational process on a different topic chosen by our learning team. You will receive one or two new courses every month – voted on and chosen by our members. You will have access to an engaging community forum in which live yoga classes, With-Ins and contemplative writing and reading classes are offered weekly.

What if I have no background in contemplative teachings or practices?

No worries! We will offer you direction as to where you can get started and how to navigate our growing library. Through curated beginners learning journeys, you will be guided to the materials you need to learn the basics so that you can progress through your process of learning effectively and sustainably.

I am a seasoned practitioner, student or scholar, will I find what I need in the Wisdom School?

The Wisdom School has always stood apart in the online space as a home for deep study. Most of our teachers have PhDs or advanced degrees in their area of study, making it a perfect environment for those who are at a more advanced stage of their learning process. Because there is so much on offer, there is something for everyone in the Wisdom School

Do I need to show up live to receive the benefits of membership?

No. While many of our courses are offered live, they all become evergreen. They live on as on-demand classes, courses, lectures and mini-trainings, available to stream according to your schedule and time constraints.

How often will new content be added?

New content is added every month, and often every week. Whether it is a new seminar, community conversation, course or set of yoga classes, the Wisdom School is constantly bustling with new content and educational experiences. It's a proverbial smorgasbord of learning.
