The BHS Philosophy Club journeyed into the city on July 24th to spend an evening at the School of Practical Philosophy enjoying one of their summer series offerings, “Stories That Can Change Your Life: Stories From the Great Masters.”

The storytelling guide for the evening was Cliff Henderson, who has fast become one our favorite philosophers in residence! It was also a special philosophy club event because we had a mixture of Bethpage graduates and current philosophy club members. The students were guided through three great stories and several poems that all revolved around the concept of overcoming fear and the power of transformation. Throughout the telling of each story the audience had the opportunity to share their own thoughts, stories, and interpretations. The students enjoyed sharing the conversation and laughter with the other members of the school. Bethpage Philosophy Club continues to enjoy the relationship we have created with this very special group of people and we look forward to many future endeavors.
