The Life House Reading Retreat
A three-night reading retreat to catch up with our ideas and your own thoughts.
In 2016, we constructed an extraordinary retreat, The Life House, in an isolated valley in the middle of Wales. The retreat is a place for thinking, reflection, friendship and new perspectives. Clad in black brick on the outside, and warm beige brick within, the building has some of the solemnity, grandeur and peace of the great monasteries of old. The Life House has three large ensuite rooms.
Previously the house could be booked by only a single party. But we have now made it possible for different people to book each of the three bedrooms individually - and therefore to share the retreat with other members of The School of Life.
This three-night reading weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday nights) is part of a new programme of long weekends at the retreat, available for single occupants or couples. The retreat includes being given topics of reflection - and a range of The School of Life’s books.
How to book
Rental of each room costs £450. It includes The School of Life Library, worth £95.
To book your place on The School of Life Reading & Thinking Retreat, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (the retreat is managed for The School of Life by our sister company, Living Architecture). We will send you a booking form and more information. The 3 rooms are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
