More About The Event
Many of us long to have great conversations: ones where we can share the deeper parts of ourselves with kind and interesting people we might never have met before. At the School of Life, we host regular online conversations, where thoughtful people from all over the world gather digitally to meet and talk. Please note this event is for The School of Life Friends Members.
After an introduction from one of our faculty, you’ll be broken up into smaller groups for chats on topics that are core to what we cover and are guaranteed to spark sincere and lively discussion. And then every ten minutes, we’ll invite you into a new room to try new people and a new topic, so that by the end, you’ll have had an excellent chance to meet a variety of people and will have covered some great themes along the way. Before the event closes, we’ll catch up as a group – and invite you to exchange details with anyone you might want to stay in touch with.
Heartwarming, kind and deeply interesting, this is an opportunity to open up one’s social circle and mingle digitally in a friendly and curious atmosphere with other School of Life Friends Members near and far.
