Please join us for a special hayride-philosophy walk on Sunday, October 13th from 10am-1pm where we’ll be exploring the role of story and imagination across cultures & how these can help us reconnect with nature. Special guest speakers/philosophers-on-trail — Shane M. Doyle (Independent Educational & Cultural Consultant, Native Nexus Consulting) & Henry Kramer (2019 Merlin Student Fellow, University of Montana Missoula).
Some of the things we’ll be discussing:
- The role of story and imagination in Native American communities
- How story and imagination have contributed to community living and various responses to environmental and social situations
- Myth, metaphor and philosophical reasoning
- Rhythm, music, and singing in Native American communities and stories
- How to cultivate story and imagination in our everyday lives
- And more…
You do not need a background in philosophy to enjoy & participate in these walks. An open mind & desire to engage in thoughtful dialogue (whether from a listening or contribution standpoint) is all that’s needed! FREE. $10 suggested donation. Please bring comfortable hiking/walking shoes, water & a light snack. Fresh-brewed iced-tea provided at our outdoor classroom/homestead stop.
