Friends’ Conversation Evening- on the theme of 'The Body'
The body is a source both of huge delight and of our most fundamental pains and sorrows too. We gather to discuss - with honesty and verve - what bodies mean to us: what are our good and bad physical sides? What do we most like and fear about our bodies? How do we feel about the bodies of others? We come away newly aware of how tricky and yet glorious the body can be for us - and we see too how common are some of the issues we might have believed ourselves to be alone in feeling.
About Friends’ Events
Membership of our Friends’ scheme gives you access to a year-long series of monthly conversation evenings, each one anchored around a big idea we’ll discuss over drinks and food. Once a 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 Secrets, What’s the Point of It All? Family, Resolutions, Love, Hope, Work, Confessions, Travel, The Body, and Utopia.
