When is the last time you got pretty angry? What makes you angry? And what does that say about what is important to you? What do you think should finally change? What are you going to do with that anger?
In this dialogue we want to exchange thoughts about the power of anger. What makes you angry? And what does that say about what is important to you? What do you think should finally change? What are you going to do with that anger? Does anger give you energy to take action, or does it make you still and freeze? Can the negative emotion of anger be turned into something positive? What lies within your own possibilities to change something? What are your experiences? And what do you dream about? Share your anger and your dreams. We cordially invite you to share your own experiences and discover other perspectives. Meet new people and get inspired!
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?

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.
