A Tiny House for Big Thinking!

Philosophy in the Forest offers self-service “Mind Hikes” in our tiny tea house every Wed & Thu 11am~4pm mid-March through mid-December or anytime by appointment. 

We offer four different hiking paths that can be traveled alone or with others.  Each path is made up of reflective activities that are intended to get “hikers” thinking beyond the day to day– deeper in a lightly philosophical way we call “fish-o-sofical.” 

You can “take a hike” alone, with a partner or small group. There is no time requirement– the time spent is up to you.  There’s tons of flexibility!
