About The School of Life

We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world. We are seeking more emotionally intelligent kinds of:

  • Relationships
  • Work
  • Leisure
  • Culture

Headquartered in London, The School of Life operates around the globe, delivering our services down a number of channels to suit your different needs. We offer classes and workshops most evenings and weekends in our Bloomsbury classroom, as well as a range of unique one-off events and experiences. We offer a range of therapy services, both from our dedicated Central London therapy spaces and via video call. We publish books, write articles, create films and make and sell a range of objects & tools that will assist you in the quest for a more fulfilled life. We also offer a full Learning and Development service that equips businesses with the emotional skills required to thrive - and own and run a retreat in Wales, the Life House, where one can go for rest and rejuvenation.
