In this workshop led by philosopher and U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel & General Inspector of the Montana National Guard Charles Phillips we’ll explore what it might look like and mean to strive for (and achieve) excellence (as a virtue) in war. This gathering will involve discussion, hands-on activities, and plenty of time for Q & A. Learn more & RVP here.
In this walk led by philosopher David Nowakowski, we’ll explore how the ways that ecologists study and learn about wild nature, can also be used to study and learn about ourselves, as human beings in human communities. We’ll look at four ecological principles: whole systems, dynamic balance, resource flows, and limits. And we’ll explore together in dialogue, how we can apply them in our own lives. This is philosophy—the life of wisdom—in a raw, applied, down-to-earth form: Take a method of knowledge and exploration, use it to describe the key elements in the wider world (or in our own inner, private worlds), and then use that clear understanding to respond in the most effective ways, through our choices and actions.

We had a delightful time on our September Philosophy Walk. Our group of 9 — technically, 10 counting our furry four-legged companion named Bella (and Beast) — enjoyed a splendid hike on Mount Ascension. Led by David Nowakowski, our group enjoyed a delightful conversation about the principles of ecology…and what sorts of things it might be able to teach us about how to flourish and thrive.

We had such a wonderful time with the Montana Internet Team! Not only were we gifted with spectacular weather by Mother Nature, we also got to enjoy talking and spending time with an inspiring and lovely group of people! Led by David Nowakowski, our group enjoyed a delightful conversation about the principles of ecology…and what sorts of things it might be able to teach us about how to flourish and thrive in both our personal lives and the workplace.
