Long live the laziness?

Wed 23 November 2022, 19:30 - 22:00

Laziness: what is it and why is it such a taboo?

When were you really lazy, and how was that for you? Why do we often feel guilty when we are lazy, and what can we learn from lazy people? In this dialogue we share thoughts and experiences on (the taboo of) laziness.

Long live the laziness?

A total absence of the will to undertake something. What is the origin of laziness? What can we learn from being lazy? What are your experiences, and dreams? We invite you to share your thoughts and experiences and discover new perspectives on laziness together. Meet new people and get inspired in this dialogue!


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?

19:30 Welcome, program starts
20:00 Dialogues in groups of 6-8 people
21:30 Sharing insights

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.
