What is The School of Life?

The School of Life is a global organisation devoted to teaching you how to lead a more fulfilled life. We offer insights in the key ingredients of emotional well-being: how to form good relationships, identify a satisfying career, minimise anxiety, acquire confidence and connect properly with friends.

All our services are available around the world in digital format - via books, films, articles, online classes and online psychotherapy.

Introducing The Calm Workbook & Drawing as Therapy

Most of us long to be a little calmer. The Calm Workbook and Drawing as Therapy are practical and therapeutic guides to alleviating stress and anxiety, filled with exercises and prompts that deliver the self-understanding and self-compassion on which true serenity depends.

Understand Anxiety

‘Anxiety’ is a guide to anxiety: why we feel it, how we experience it when it strikes and what we can do when we come under its influence.

Find Calm

‘Calm Prompt Cards’ contain ideas and observations designed to help us handle frustrations and find perspective on life’s sorrows and regrets.

Visit Calming Places

‘Calming Places’ are twenty invitations to travel in our minds to places that can restore us to our best, most balanced selves.

Unpack Your Emotions

‘Emotional First Aid Kit’ is a box of wise advice on some of life’s most challenging psychological situations.

Understand Insomnia

‘Insomnia’ is an eloquent guide to, and companion through, the long sleepless hours of the night.

Find Perspective

‘Cards for Perspective’ provide eloquent invitations to recover a wiser, calmer, redemptive perspective on our lives.

Resources for Parents and Teachers

No stage in our development is more important than childhood. Our childhood sets the course of our adult lives. That's why we’ve created some free learning packs to support childhood learning and development at home.

Become a Friend

Our Friend scheme is our inner-circle, designed to reward and recognise those who are closest to us. A year-long membership, for yourself or gifted to a loved one, includes many benefits and allows us to explore, and return to, every topic offered by The School of Life.

Develop Your Team

Our Virtual Business Workshops take your team - wherever they may be - through a range of key emotional skills needed to thrive in the world today; including resilience, calm, endurance and strategic foresight. We build and educate winning teams.
