Andrea and Matt are uniquely qualified educators whose passion for both philosophy and the outdoors led them to create Sedona Philosophy. While they have each earned advanced degrees in philosophy, their real strength lies in their ability to bring people together in a way that is inspiring and motivating. Their goal is to carry philosophy out of the classroom and onto the trail, where people can use it to explore, ponder, discuss, and enjoy nature in an even deeper, more personal and more fulfilling way.

Our History

In 2014 we piloted the Sedona Philosophy Circle, which started with four seminars on philosophical topics of regional interest:

Our Region - The Slide FirePhilosophy - Environmental Ethics

Our Region - The Grand Canyon copy

Then we held our first workshop on the philosophical approach of phenomenology held at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Sedona, Arizona.

Then we held a series of talks with local photographer Ted Grussing at the Sedona International Film Festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
