Details coming soon…
When & Where
This evening workshop led by philosopher David Nowakowski will take place outdoors at Caretaker’s Lawn (in Reeder’s Alley) on Monday, September 12th if the weather is nice. If it’s being cantankerous, then we’ll hold the workshop indoors in the Reeder’s Alley Conference Center. No prior background in philosophy or meditation is required to participate.
*If the weather is not conducive to being outdoors, we’ll move indoors into the Reeder’s Alley Conference & Convention Center.
David Nowakowski is as a philosopher and educator in the Helena area whose professional work is dedicated to helping people of all ages and backgrounds access, understand, and apply the traditions of ancient philosophy to their own lives. David began studying ancient philosophies and classical languages in 2001, and has continued ever since. A scholar of the philosophical traditions of the ancient Mediterranean (Greece, Rome, and North Africa) and of the Indian subcontinent, reading Sanskrit, Latin, and classical Greek, he earned his Ph.D. in philosophy from Princeton University in 2014. His work has appeared in a variety of scholarly journals, including Philosophy East & West, Asian Philosophy, and the Journal of Indian Philosophy, as well as in presentations to academic audiences at Harvard, Columbia University, the University of Toronto, Yale-NUS College in Singapore, and elsewhere.
After half a decade teaching at liberal arts colleges in the northeast, David chose to leave the academy in order to focus his energies on the transformative value of these ancient philosophical and spiritual traditions in his own life and practice, and on building new systems of education and community learning that will make this rich heritage alive and available to others.
