• What we are perhaps not easily able to see about ourselves.
We realise the extent to which our minds are squeamish about ideas that challenge our existing comfortable view of ourselves - and acquire tools that combat the tendency to avoid important insights into who we really are.
How to Develop Self-Knowledge takes us on one of the most exciting journeys: into our deepest, most elusive selves. We come away armed with a newly clarified sense of the distinctive nature of our personalities, what we need to watch out for and what our priorities and potential might be.
This class is in a sequence with How to Be Sociable and How to Be Serene which together cover The School of Life's ideas on self and others.
Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.
These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity.
