Calm - The School Of Life

Calm

Modern life seems almost designed to generate near-constant anxiety – and to deny us the chance for a peaceful outlook. But lasting calm can’t be summoned with candles or sunsets (as pleasant as these can be), but rather by organising our muddled thoughts. We have developed a range of classes and tools to help us to find calm on a regular basis and to grow into the serene people we deserve to be.

Tools for Summoning Calm

From understanding the causes of our most common anxieties to discovering sources of serenity in the everyday, we offer a range of tools for soothing our racing, fractious minds.
