Philosophy in the Community
We offer a broad spectrum of unique, fun & accessible opportunities for the Helena community to do, breathe & live philosophy.
Our philosophy in the community programs are free to the public and support critical, creative thinking, the exchange of ideas, and the application of philosophy to everyday life. More broadly, they are opportunities for people of all backgrounds and ages (from children to elders) to gather, to learn from and with one another, and to uniquely cultivate their personal and civic selves.
Examples include: philosophy walks, philosophy symposiums, philosophy workshops & outings, philosophy drive-in’s & read-in’s, philosophy fellowships, philosophy think & drinks, philosophy community endeavors (including our “Big Ideas by Little Philosopher’s” program and our ongoing Montana Conversations programs), and more. Our Philosophy in the Community activities represent the bulk of what we do.
We also offer philosophical (ethical) consulting services, including life enrichment & wellness programs, unique business services that bring philosophy into the workplace, and academic editorial, research & writing services. While we are interested in a variety of topics, our areas of specialty include: quality of life, leadership & action, happiness & meaning, loss, change & grief, death & dying, elder interests, and our relationship with nature.
On-Line Resource Center
Finally, we have a free on-line resource center (as well as a social media page) with access to a growing number of articles, videos, multi-media resources, educational lectures, and tools all aimed at helping people in a variety of philosophy-related ways.
* Philosophical Counseling *
We also offer philosophical counseling services and, at present, are able to take on a limited number of clients.
In the instance that we are not able to be of service at the time you need, we would be happy to connect you with some of our philosophical practitioner colleagues who reside out of state but offer distance counseling.
