My father always said: Moderation is key. Isn’t that a bit boring? Isn’t it wonderful to have some gluttony every now and then? Or party for a few days? And that hangover? Well…that’s part of it anyway…? What are your thoughts and experiences?
This dialogue is part of series of seven conversations. Inspired by the list of ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ compiled by Pope Gregory I in the 6th century. You’ve probably heard of it; pride, greed, anger, envy, lust, gluttony and sloth. But what do these mean for us today? What if we leave our judgment behind and examine these together on the basis of our own experiences? What then do we learn about what makes us happy, and how to live in harmony with others and our environment?
This dialogue is part of conversation in the series, where we take a closer look at ‘gluttory’. What are your experiences? What does it bring you? Are there things holding you back? Or do you enjoy a life full of food and feasting? We cordially invite you to share your own experiences and discover other perspectives. Meet new people and get inspired!

Wat is a dialogue?
A dialogue is an open conversation about experiences, dreams and possibilities that contribute to mutual understanding, connection and insight. Meeting based on essential curiosity is paramount. We explore experiences, perspectives, dreams and possibilities. In a dialogue you actually talk to each other. Everyone is heard and heard. You investigate together what works and what it is all about. You speak for yourself, don’t think for anyone else and don’t give advice. In dialogue you see other meanings and you come to new insights. Listening attentively and examining one’s own judgments and other points of view are essential.
We start the evening with a short inspiration on the theme. This can be done, for example, by means of a speaker, exercise or film. We then explore the theme in groups of 6 to 8 through the dialogue. At the end of the evening we try to summarize the lessons, insights and thoughts of the evening together.
