Sedona AZ (July 7, 2014) – Sometimes our experiences are different from what we know to be true. For example, we say, “the sun rises and sets,” while we know the earth is actually rotating. Phenomenology is a branch of philosophy that investigates the way human beings experience phenomena in the world. At the Phenomenology Workshop participants will have an opportunity to explore the nature of sense experience.
At this workshop participants will gain insight into four categories that shape our everyday lives:
- Space – Can a person experience space alone, or do people merely experience objects in space?
- Time – What does it mean when we say “time drags” or “time flies?” How does our experience affect the way we perceive time?
- Memory and the Future – How is a memory similar or different from anticipating a future event?
Specially crafted exercises will give participants an opportunity to look, perhaps for the first time, at the way they are experiencing things. It is sure to be both surprising and delightful. Participants will also have an opportunity to share and compare their experiences with others.
Participants have the option of ordering a boxed lunch or bringing their own.
The Sedona Philosophy Circle offers members of the community an opportunity to connect through interactive programs that relate wisdom and enrichment to our everyday lives.
