Our classes and workshops, designed by a world-class faculty, go straight to the most helpful ideas around the dilemmas of work, relationships, friendship and anxiety. Take a systematic, structured journey around our material or try a one-off class when it's convenient.

You'll learn, make friends and - in the long run - save a lot of time.
