How to Be Serene Workshop | The School of Life

How to be Serene

  • Emotional Education
  • Calm
  • Self-Knowledge
Few life skills are as neglected, yet as important, as the ability to remain calm. Our very worst decisions and interactions are almost invariably the result of a loss of calm - and a descent into anxiety and agitation. Fortunately, our power to remain calm can be rehearsed and improved.

More About the Class

What will I learn?

How to Be Serene teaches:

  • Many of the things we become angry about are neither random nor vain
  • The things we worry about are obscure yet critical signals about what may be amiss in our lives
  • We should not try to deny or neuter anxiety or rage, but learn to interpret it more skilfully

The format of this class is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, group discussion and individual reflection. The facilitators of the class aim to create a confidential space where all participants are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably. If you have any questions about the format of the class please get in touch at [email protected].

What is ‘How to be Serene?’

We can educate ourselves in the art of remaining calm not through slow breathing or special teas but through thinking. This is a class that patiently unpacks the causes of our greatest stresses and gives us a succession of highly persuasive, beautiful and sometimes dryly comic arguments with which to defend ourselves against panic and fury.
