As my passion for words does not merely restrict itself to the written word, I am trying to enter into spoken dialogue as often and in as many ways as possible. Thereby, I especially focus on philosophical topics. Like in my writings, I am predominantly interested to bring intercultural and life related issues to a broad audience. In the subcategories you will find information concerning a J. Krishnamurti dialogue group as well as my upcoming philosophical workshops, talks, or presentations. If you want a foretaste, here you go.



Here are some of the topic I have presented so far:
