What does a Philosophical Practitioner do?
I talked to Tina Wittholm who runs a philosophical practice and if you’re anything like me, philosophy and practice (= practical application) don’t necessarily seem related. At least for me, I always thought philosophy is about theories and thought processes, but has little to do with our everyday life – how wrong I was!
When I met Tina I was fascinated how she applies her philosophical knowledge to our everyday life, to help us move through life in a more easeful and confident way. Inviting us to think for ourselves and get in touch with our own inner compass, our Truth.
That’s definitely something that’s important to me in my own work, too, so I’m happy to have had the chance to interview her!
Tina’s mission is to bring philosophy back to where it belongs: to the people! In our conversation you’ll learn how philosophy and our daily life are connected and how we can use philosophical insights to live our lives more easefully.
