Date and time

We start at 18:30, and end at 20:30
We invite you to four conversation evenings about the eternal questions of life - philosophical conversations about what affects us most in life. The activity is part of our overall goal to contribute to increased sustainability and a richer life together.
Much of what we are a part of in society is strongly influenced from the outside (eg advertising, lifestyle trends, expectations, etc.). It is often about how we should live and what we should do. We do not always question the information we encounter or fully understand how we are affected. Turning the question and looking at oneself then becomes increasingly important. What is really important to me, how do I want to live, who am I and what creates meaning for me?
Let us take the help of different philosophical thinkers throughout history to explore together the great and classical questions of life. During four Thursday evenings this autumn, Tord will introduce one theme per evening from the perspective of different philosophers. Then we have open conversations in various forms to explore what it can mean for our lives today and for me in my current situation. And then we think of conversations that are unpretentious, open and curious. The idea is not to argue or debate but to really curiously explore ourselves to find more inspiration and lust for life. Hopefully we also learn more about ourselves and from each other.
No prior knowledge is required and we also want to emphasize that we are politically and religiously independent.
Dates, themes and price
From October 1, 2020, we will start and meet on the first Thursday of each month with the following themes;

Does it sound interesting? Sign up in the form below. If you have questions or concerns, you can reach the conversation leader Tord Olsson by email email@example.com or on tel 070-201 14 30.
Tord Olsson at Herresta Lada, who will lead the talks, has with great interest during the past year read the course "The existential conversation" at Södertörn University, and has explored the classical philosophers' views on our most common life issues. He has also participated in talks at the Existential Forum with Ann Lagerström & Stefan Lidbrink as supervisors. The philosophical room in radio's P1 is regularly in his headphones. Tord is also an experienced conversation leader and certified coach.
Tord & Heléne works to create a meeting place at Herresta Lada where we meet in openness and curiosity, where we touch on the important things in life and where we support and inspire each other to grow as people.
