Joke Hermsen : Seize eternity in the moment

Moments of being

Thanks to her books Stil de tijd and Kairos, een nieuwe bevlogenheid, the Dutch philosopher and author Joke Hermsen can call herself an expert on Time. In her latest book, she compares the god Chronos, the god of the ‘measurable’ time, with his grandson Kairos, the god of ´the opportune moment´, who provides unexpected insights and offers new opportunities. Kairos interrupts measurable time and represents all those inspired moments of beauty and vigour that add to life. During this conference ‘Moments of Being’, Joke Hermsen offers an antidote to the rigidity of society in favour of the benefits of inspiration, motivation, enthusiasm and fresh starts.
