Change of Moderator for tonight’s (Feb 17) Philosophers’ Cafe: Healthy Living

Tonight’s Philosophers’ Cafe: Healthy Living

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances our moderator, Louise Blais, is unable to attend this event. In her place, Sandra Turnbull and Angelique Wood will lead the discussion.

appleSandra is a Registered Dietician with Interior Health and is currently leading the Summerland Healthy Communities Initiative. The mission of this initiative is to make Summerland a leading example of a healthy community. Angelique is the coordinator of the Okanagan Similkameen Healthy Living Coalition.

In their presentation and subsequent discussion, Sandra and Angelique will encourage us to examine what impacts our health, and in the process, perhaps redefine our concept of healthy living.

Unless otherwise stated all Philosophers’ Cafés are held at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main Street, Summerland. Doors open at 6:30pm and discussion starts at 7pm. Admission by donation. Coffee, tea and refreshments are available.  For more information contact: Barbara Thorburn, 778-516-4314; Margaret Holler, 250-494-0728 or

*Ever wonder why “Philosophers’ Café” is “s” apostrophe and not apostrophe “s”?

Philosophers’ Cafés are based on the belief that we all have the capacity to employ philosophic inquiry.  In fact, the classical Greek Philosopher, Socrates, did not believe that he understood any more about humanity than anyone else.  He practiced an open system of philosophy which sought the truth by questioning what we truly know of what we claim.  By engaging in discussions such as, “Is Art in the Eye of the Beholder” or “What does Spirituality Mean in Everyday Life?”, we can examine our own preconceived ideas while being exposed to or challenged by other perspectives – all in a friendly and supportive environment.
