Event description
Eureka moments, religious conversions, psychedelia... An intimate exploration of life-changing experiences of self and reality

About this Event

We humans tend to see our lives as a sequence of distinct phases - ages, life stages, relationships, the cities we have lived in, the jobs we have held... Between each stage, we seem to survive transition periods that are full of uncertainty and mostly outside our control: we graduate high school, lose a loved one, move for work, learn the everyday realities of parenting.

And still, the most important transformations in our lives begin not outside, but inside us. We realise something, we understand something, we arrive at a crucial insight - after which nothing can be the same ever again. Something in our minds, often independently from our age or circumstances, just... clicks.

Why do these "Damascus moments" happen - and how?

At this quiet Interintellect Salon we will meditate on and discuss such moments in the history of religion, art and science - and, most importantly, in our own lives.

We hope you can join us!
