The Walled Garden Philosophical Society is a sanctuary for those who wish to think deeply about the contemporary challenges and opportunities that we face in our individual lives, as well as in our families, communities, organisations, and nations.

MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

When I created the concept for The Walled Garden Philosophical Society in 2021, I envisioned a virtual gathering place for philosophers, artists, and seekers who shared a common love of wisdom, and a burning desire to aid the flourishing of humanity.

Since then, we’ve greatly expanded our team, mission, and vision, and we’d like to welcome you to now join us in open philosophical dialogue with other like-minded seekers from around the world. We hope that you’ll find our garden to be restorative, meaningful, and fruitful for your soul.

UPCOMING EVENTS AND OPEN DIALOGUES

The following events are free to the public, and we welcome you to attend.

COMING SOON TO THE WALLED GARDEN

We’re about to launch a series of member-only meetups led by world-class teachers on topics such as practical philosophy, Stoicism, mysticism, poetry, spirituality, the classics, and more. Register your interest by following the links below.

Led by philosopher and professor Kai Whiting, the Walled Garden International Stoa is a community of Stoic students and philosophers dedicated to rediscovering and living out the principles of Stoicism.

The time has come
For the Poet to do
What the Sage cannot.

Enter here with us, friends,
And let us receive Divine Wisdom
In the same spirit as those Giants
Who have come before us.

A place for the mystically inclined among us to discuss spirituality and mysticism in the contemporary context.

The Walled Garden Classics Society focuses on the study, discussion, and interpretation of the greatest texts of Western Culture.
