MQ Academy | Donation Based, Schaffhauserstrasse 78, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland



Welcome to our philosophical salon, "Being Free". Our discourse will dance around the notion of 'freedom', a concept as captivating as it is elusive, with layers stretching across the physical, social, emotional, and mental dimensions of our existence.

Our salon will traverse the landscapes of freedom: from the shackles of colonialism that binds nations to social structures and prejudices restricting minority rights, the emotional entanglement of our traumas, and the mental barriers constructed by our beliefs and fears.

In our pursuit of understanding freedom, we would also turn to the insights of Western philosophy from Friedrich Nietzsche, Sarte, and Foucault, whose work upends conventional notions of freedom and autonomy. Contrasting this, we delve into the Eastern philosophy of Rabindranath Tagore, who espoused a vision of freedom as the realization of unity within diversity, drawing upon the spiritual traditions of the East.

"Being Free" is not merely about theoretical exploration. It's a journey of collective introspection and personal discovery. Together, we will strive to understand freedom's multifaceted nature, learning how to embody and manifest it daily. We invite you to join us in this profound exploration of 'Being Free.'
