The best of The School of Life condensed into a single, unforgettable week
Our Spring Intensive brings together the very best of our programme.
You’ll embark on a rich and enlightening voyage, discovering how to make lasting, meaningful change across every aspect of your life. By working within a fixed group led by a core tutor over the week, you'll dive deeper than would be possible in any single class. 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.
The course is ideal for those seeking a more meaningful, transformative vacation; for attendees of our classes who now wish to take a structured journey through our expertly curated material; and for those wishing to save time in the long run by working through the dilemmas of work, love, and self in a single, high intensity week.
Blending tuition, exercises and discussion, each day of the Spring Intensive will equip you with tools and strategies to help you find answers for one of life’s big themes: be it love, work, legacy, character, family or the future.
5 Days, 5 Journeys
Day 1 focuses on how to grow the things that really matter in life. You’ll explore why self-knowledge matters and how to get more of it, and gain a deeper understanding of the values and ambitions that drive you.
Day 2 you’ll learn to face adversity and emerge stronger and more resourceful. We’ll study exercises for building resilience and learn to harness the therapeutic benefits of writing and philosophy.
Day 3 focuses on strengthening relationships with lovers, family and friends. You’ll learn how to make love last, relate to your family and communicate better with the people who matter most.
Day 4 concentrates on the challenges of finding and sustaining meaningful work, whether you’re looking to find a more fulfilling career or stay at the top of your field. And you’ll learn how to stay focused and manage the whirlwind of your digital life.
Day 5 you’ll learn to realise your creative potential and see new possibilities in all of your endeavours. We’ll bring together the week’s lessons and consider how to make a real difference to our own lives and the wider community.
