How to Make Love Last - Virtual Class

What is ‘How to Make Love Last’?

How to Make Love Last is a 2.5 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our virtual classroom over Zoom. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture. The aim of this class is to help you to develop a core emotional skill. Further information on how to connect to the class will be made available once you have purchased a ticket.




Why should I attend?

We live in a culture that talks a lot about finding love - but far less about the next part of the puzzle, making the love we have last. This is a class that equips with you a toolkit of skills for ensuring the health and vibrancy of a relationship over the long term. 

We will learn together about Communication, Compassion, Listening, Playfulness and Diplomacy. Most of all, we will understand that it isn’t a sign of failure that we have ended up here; it’s a proof of commitment. We will learn that love is not simply an emotion to be felt, it is a skill to be learnt. 

What will I learn?

How to Make Love Last teaches us:

  • How to communicate, teach and learn
  • How not to sulk
  • How to allow others to get close to us despite our fears
  • How to understand and explain the distinctive way in which we want to be loved
  • How to forgive and be forgiven
  • How to navigate conflict through humour
  • How to deal with sexual differences and awkward desires

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.
