Banyen's Description: 

Hypatia was one of the most famous philosophers of the ancient world. The mix of classical philosophies she taught to Pagans, Jews, and Christians in the fourth century forms the very foundation of Western spirituality as we know it today. The Wisdom of Hypatia is a hands-on guide to using the principles of philosophy to bring purpose, tranquility, and spiritual depth to your life.

To the ancients, philosophy was a spiritual practice meant to help the seeker achieve a good life and maintain mental tranquility. Bruce J. MacLennan, PhD, provides a concise history of philosophy up to Hypatia’s time and a progressive, nine-month program of spiritual practice based on her teachings. Explore the three most important philosophical schools of the Hellenistic Age. Lead a more serene, balanced life. Discover the techniques described in the historical sources, and put into practice the profound insights of the world’s greatest minds.

Like most ancient philosophers, Hypatia taught a way of life, not an academic subject to be studied but not practiced…
 

What’s in it for you? A system of practical techniques for living a happier, more spiritually enlightened life. Whether you are Pagan, like Hypatia, or Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or Wiccan, or whether you are a skeptic or nonbeliever, you can use these spiritual practices.

The Wisdom of Hypatia is grounded in solid scholarship, lucidly written, and, above all, practical. This book reunites spirituality, philosophy, and psychology into a path for our time, and for all times. Read it. Practice it. You will never be the same.”—Leonard George, PhD, Chair of Psychology, Capilano University
