Join us on the evening of Friday 31st March for an evening of psychological insight and daring conversation.
We’re all guilty of prevaricating before we tackle a tough subject, even though we know it would be better to speak up sooner rather than later. And if we do finally broach the subject, we know how tempting it is to obfuscate, to invite the other person to “read between the lines” rather than be direct, or to allow unspoken emotion to boil over into hostile body language.
This class constitutes an intelligent guide to how to move on from idle banter to emotionally and intellectually ambitious dialogues. We’ll investigate the psychology and philosophy of conversation - what works and what often doesn't - as well as the assumptions we make about other people that stifle mutual understanding and curiosity.
The class is open to individuals and couples.
Lovers may come and go, work may carry us half way around the world, but friendship tends to be a point of stability in an otherwise changing world.
Friends’ events at The School of Life include cocktails, breakfasts, feasts and parties. Find out more about becoming a Friend here.
