One-Day Festival Know Yourself

One-day Festival Know Yourself @ Fosbury & Sons

One of the most striking features of our minds is how little we understand them. At The School of Life, we believe this lack of Self Knowledge is very often what stands between us and greater fulfillment – a relationship that will bring us joy, a job that motivates us each morning, or a wiser approach to those situations where we seem to keep making the same familiar, frustrating errors.

Know Yourself will draw on our Core Curriculum, focusing on the exploration of ourselves. The teaching methods aren’t entirely standard – our lecturers invite almost continuous interaction, encouraging participants to actively engage in self-reflection and share their stories, thoughts and reflections with others. As always in our classes and at our events, we aim to establish an atmosphere where all feel welcome to contribute and question, safe in the knowledge that our courage will be met with open-mindedness, and good humour.

Our festival on Self Knowledge is for anyone who wishes to explore what truly interests, motivates and excites us, as well as figuring out what lies behind some of our most important fears, anxieties, and sorrows.

Ken Jezelf-Festival (Eng.)

Opvallend aan onze innerlijke beweegredenen is hoe weinig we er zelf eigenlijk van begrijpen. Wij van The School of Life geloven dat dit gebrek aan zelfkennis veel te vaak in de weg staat tussen ons en een gevoel van en hunkering naar voldoening – een relatie die ons geluk brengt, een job die ons elke ochtend motiveert, of beter omgaan met situaties die ons steeds weer frustreren.

Ons dagfestival Ken Jezelf is opgebouwd uit belangrijke inzichten en ideeën uit ons vaste curriculum, en focust volledig rond zelfkennis. Hoe we lesgeven is allesbehalve standaard – we vragen continue interactie, en moedigen deelnemers aan om actief te participeren en inzichten, gedachten en verhalen met de groep te delen. Zoals altijd in onze klassen en events, bieden we een prettige, mooie en veilige plek waar iedereen welkom is, en waar onze moedige bijdragen beantwoordt worden met begrip en humor.

Deze dag is geschikt voor iedereen die zijn of haar echte interesses, motivaties en keuzes wil doorgronden, en wil begrijpen waarom angsten, barrières en verdriet soms toch de kop op steken.
