Being in Flow: A Salon
A philosophical Salon discussion on "Flow" and its impact on our lives from the Western and the Eastern perspective.
Time & Location
Sep 25, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM GMT+2
MQ Academy | Free, Schaffhauserstrasse 78, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland
Welcome to our philosophical salon, "Being in Flow". In this session, we'll immerse ourselves in the exploration of 'flow', a state of deep absorption characterized by enhanced performance and deepened self-consciousness, a concept widely recognized by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
We will compare this with ideas from Eastern traditions, especially Taoism, that perceive similar states as aligned with the universe's natural rhythm. Our discussions will illuminate the intersections between Western psychological constructs and Eastern philosophical principles, unveiling the profound wisdom encapsulated in both traditions.
Through our collective exploration, we seek not only to understand 'flow', but to learn how to embody it, facilitating a richer, more fulfilled existence within our everyday lives. Our aim is to stimulate rich discussions that marry these perspectives, helping participants cultivate their unique understanding of 'flow' and its impact on their life.
