Walks in Bamboo Forests: Think Like a Philosopher

Walks in Bamboo Forests: Think Like a Philosopher


Eastern Philosophy has always had a very similar goal to Western philosophy: that of making us wiser, less agitated, more thoughtful, and prepared to appreciate our beautiful lives. However, the way the Eastern philosophers have gone about this has been intriguingly different. 


In the East, Philosophy has taught its lessons via tea drinking ceremonies, contemplations of rivers, flower arranging sessions, and walks in bamboo forests!


Students will learn how to think like a philosopher, compare and draw differences as well as similarities from both halves of our world. A few ideas:
