Some people cultivate too many contradictory tendencies, and they do this without privileging one dominant facet of their self. Becoming one is a discipline, not a given: it is important not to feel guilty about your contradictions because they are natural, but it is also profitable for a deeply successful and blissful life to eliminate as many contradictory tendencies as you can.
The question then is: which one is YOU?
Do you find it hard to take decisions?
When was the last time you admired yourself?
What is the structure of your destiny?
Do the various parts of your existence form a coherent and blissful narrative?
Do you or your team struggle to reconcile ideals and reality?
How could you be more fruitful?
Do you feel you are forced to grow too fast and in contradictory directions?
What is your most important project?
WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?
Even Alexander the Great had his personal mind-training philosopher — would he have become a successful conqueror without Aristotle‘s advice? Kristina Queen of Sweden hired René Descartes, the father of the cogito, as a philosophical counsellor already in 1649. She subsequently resigned from her position, judging there was a more important matter than being a queen: to be brave and true to her self.
At The Philosophical Parlour, you can pause once or twice a month, far from the noise and fury, to discuss what matters without assuming that there is something wrong with you. Common diagnoses or pills might give a false security for a little while, but you should look for sustainable help. The Philosophical Parlour helps you be autonomous, and naturally free, just through meaningful dialogue.
The Philosophical Parlour is located in the heart of Stockholm by Livslinjen Institute (Hantverkargatan 46). Private conversations are held with Luis de Miranda, Doctor of Philosophy, certified practising member of the board of the Swedish Society for Philosophical Practice (SSFP), trained in Lacanian analysis, and author of internationally translated philosophical essays and novels.
Ask for one free discovery session of 45 min (in English, Portuguese, or Swedish). Tuesdays or Thursdays from 14h to 21h. firstname.lastname@example.org / skype: crealiste / +46 (0) 732678884
If you would rather speak via Skype, Luis de Miranda also offers online conversations.
“Luis de Miranda is a professional of Truth.” Gerald Moore, Philosopher, Durham University.
“Thanks to Luis de Miranda and his double expertise in thinking and creating, I was able to write two books that got published and spoke to hundreds of readers. In the process, I learned about myself and the world, and became a more autonomous person and attentive leader.” Jean-Sébastien Hongre, CEO of Teaminside International.
“Luis de Miranda helped me to develop the voice I needed to reconcile a horrible past with a rewarding present.” Céline Raphaël, author of La Démesure, Paris, France.
“Talking with Luis de Miranda about our problems or ideas between 2014 and 2017 often boosted our courage. He is not only a rigorous thought-leader with a deep knowledge of philosophy, literature, and art, but also an open-minded listener with a joyful energy.” Edouard Notte, Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.
“I met Luis de Miranda several years ago, when he was invited to give a talk at Reykjavik University. Since then I think a lot about his Creal-philosophy. More recently, Luis helped me to challenge the Venice Biennale.” Katrin Inga Jonsdottir Hjordisardottir, Icelandic Artist.
