The Fortunes of Dialectic

Why Fortunes?

Nothing can be as precious in this world as discovering something Truthful about your own Self! Whether it’s a simple Realisation or a discovery of something held deep within, the discovery is always Enlightening.

Come along and try for yourself!


I have been in the school around 22 years and was drawn to the Dialectic approach to Self Discovery through the Plato weeks offered by Dr David Horan.

The approach really satisfied my inward thirst for the discovery of Self Knowledge and Realising something of Truth that I would not doubt unequivocally.

I have also become a Primary School Teacher and enjoy using the Dialectic approach with young students and can see the positive affect it has on them each time.

Why ‘my way’ turns out to be the wrong way (and what else is available to us).


This interactive presentation looks at why pursuing ‘my way’ only leads to frustration and complications.

If you have ever been at the beck and call of events, with a feeling of being at their mercy – with even more coming around the corner then this presentation is for you!

But is there an alternative and what is it?

Let’s open ourselves up to a possibility that there might be a more expansive, freer approach to life and all that it has to offer us.
