We are delighted to be presenting a hand-tailored version of our Montana Conversations program "Philosophy:  What Is It Good For?" at Bridges Buffet! Interactive and dynamic, this program is geared for community members of all ages interested in learning more about how philosophy can help enrich our lives...and why it is good for "absolutely everything!" As part of this presentation, we will be looking at why philosophy is such a great companion and how it can help us navigate the aging process in ways that inspire enlightenment, relief, humor, growth, grace, empowerment, and deep satisfaction.
