In this three-week series, Dr. Carol Quinn, published author and professor of philosophy and Eastern religions, will lead us in an exploration of some of the most interesting questions that humans have pondered across time and cultures, for example: How do we live a meaningful life? How do we know that what we experience is real?

After learning about a range of philosopher’s viewpoints from both Western and Eastern perspectives, participants will choose the philosophies that best speak to them, and engage in a group dialogue to explain their reasoning. Appropriate for adults. Space is limited; registration for each session recommended.

As some of my previous blog posts have mentioned, I love animated movies. My favorite animated filmmaker is Hayao Miyazaki. His movies cover many topics, but focus on coming-of-age stories and interactions with nature. These deep and visually impressive films pull at the heart-strings while impressing the eye. Any of his movies are worth watching, but these four movies will pull you into a new magical world.
