How to build flourishing friendships

Thursday 23 April 7.30PM - 10PM

Good relationships are important for your health, happiness and brain. But lasting friendships are easier said than done. What does friendship mean to you? Through Facebook and LinkedIn we can expand our circle of friends with one click. But what is a real friend? In this flourishing class we challenge you through practical exercises, personal reflection and inspirational ideas.

Having friends seems so obvious, but at the same time we don’t pay enough attention to it. De Kwekerij takes you into the wonderful world of valuable social relationships. It will be an interactive evening in which we will discuss classic and modern ideas about friendship. From Aristotle to the influence of digitization and social media. We also look at ourselves. What can friends call you for? How do you get more out of yourself and your friendship(s)? During this evening you review your idea of friendship. Who is in your 'warm greenhouse' and who is not?

Locatie: De Kas, Uilenstede 346B, Amstelveen.

This is a flourishing class organized by De Kwekerij (target audience: people in their twenties): a personal and disruptive workshop, in groups with a maximum of 20 people. We share our personal experience, offer creative exercises and draw upon philosophical, sociological, psychological and religious sources. During this interactive evening you will be guided by our greenhouse trainers.
