Friends’ Conversation Evening- on the theme of 'Whats the Point of it All?'

This evening is anchored around a question so large most of us either laugh it off or refuse to address it head on: What is the meaning of life? Tonight we playfully but sincerely interrogate what gives our lives meaning, what the purpose of being here is, and how we might plot to have more authentic and sincere experiences in the future. We learn that asking big questions around meaning is in no way intimidating or useless. We can make progress, learn about ourselves and discover the inner lives of strangers.

About Friends’ Events

Membership of our Friends’ scheme gives you access to a year-long series of monthly conversation drinks, each one anchored around a big idea we’ll discuss over drinks and food. On the second Friday of every month, we come together in a central London venue with other members of the diverse and bright community of the School of Life. At every event, you’ll be offered a conversation menu and systematically (and entertainingly) introduced to everyone else in the room. If you enjoy our work, you will find kindred spirits. The evenings are guaranteed to be stimulating and reassuring - as well as prompts to genuine connection and insight.

Each month we’ll explore a different theme, starting with School and moving on to What’s the Point of It All?, Secrets, Resolutions, Love, Family, Hope, Work, Confessions, Taboos, The Body, and Utopia.
