Meetups

“I enjoy this group’s ability to engage in thought-provoking conversation, giving those attending a voice without judgment.”
[ Skye Allen ]

If you’re in the Vancouver, Washington, area, you’re invited to join us in real life. Events are managed through Meetup.com. We have repeating events and special events, so be sure to sign up on Meetup.com, keep an eye on our calendar, and join us when you can! Inquisitive minds, kind people, and all points of view are welcome. We practice classical tolerance — elitism toward ideas and egalitarianism toward persons.


Workshops
Sharpen your thinking skills, improve your cognitive health and performance, and get on the road to more thoughtful living.


Idea Labs
Let’s get philosophical. Join us to think about and discuss interesting topics about ourselves, the world, and each other.


Think Outside
These meetups are basically Idea Labs out of doors, adding ingredients that spark fresh thinking and boost cognitive health and performance:

  • A natural, outdoor environment
  • Physical exercise
  • Social connectedness

Book Discussions
Thinkers are readers! Join us to discuss books that deserve contemplation and promote thoughtful living.


Nature Therapy • Forest Bathing
“Forest bathing” or “taking in the forest through our senses” is translated from shinrin-yoku — a cornerstone of health and healing in Japanese medicine. More and more evidence shows that time in nature is healthy for our minds. It can lift our mood, improve our focus, lower stress and anxiety, and promote clearer thinking. Join us for a restorative walk in the woods!
