Start October 25: Philosophical evening talks about MEANING, LIFE & LUST!

Date and time
Date: 2022-10-25
We start at 18:30, and end at 21:00

A warm welcome this autumn to open-minded conversation evenings connected to the timeless and big questions of life, ie existential philosophical conversations about what concerns us most in life. The activity is part of Herresta Ladas to contribute to a more meaningful and 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 or think. 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 and joy for me?

Let us take the help of different philosophical thinkers throughout history to explore the great and classical questions of life together. On eight occasions during the autumn and spring, 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 myself in my current situation and going forward. 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 desire 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 and themes

From the fall of 2022, we will start and meet at Herresta Lada once a month (on Tuesday evenings) with the following themes during the fall;

  • What is a rich and meaningful life, 25 Oct
  • Anxiety and uncertainty, 29 Nov
  • Choice and responsibility, 31 Jan 2023
  • Relationships and love, 28 Feb 2023

We then plan a continuation with four more occasions March-June 2023.

Each event starts at 18.30 and lasts until kl. 21.00 (the first opportunity may be slightly extended to introduce the forms of conversation).

The minimum number of participants is 6, the maximum number is 12. You sign up for all four occasions, as we envisage a closed group. The price is SEK 1,500 including VAT per semester (4 occasions) and then also includes coffee with evening snack on each occasion.
