Classes and Workshops from The School of Life

The School of Life teaches a range of classes and workshops most days and evenings in our London classroom in which we consider the great challenges of emotional life. Read on to find out more, or view our Calendar for a full list of all our forthcoming events.

Our range of classes and workshops offer individuals a radical new approach to learning. We focus on issues that can make or break our lives: from choosing the right career and negotiating relationships, to developing self-knowledge and mastering the art of enjoying life. Whether you’re attending your first class, or are working your way through the full curriculum, you’ll make friends and learn highly useful lessons in an atmosphere of intellectual enquiry and emotional openness.


Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. Over the course of an evening or afternoon, you’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

One-Day Workshops

Our one-day workshops bring together the ideas taught in all three of our topic-related classes, teaching the key skills required to navigate the challenges of work and romantic relationships and helping us to foster our understanding of ourselves and achieve greater serenity in the face of anxieties. The workshops last for a day and make for an immersive, sociable and hugely transformative experience. 

Professional Workshops

Many of the most pressing problems of the modern workplace have to do with shortfalls in emotional intelligence - rather than with deficiencies in technical or ‘hard’ skills. Our workshops are designed to teach some of the central emotional skills required to thrive in a career - and they enable freelancers and independent professionals to benefit from the School of Life’s unique experience of working with businesses.


Who Should Attend?

Our curriculum has been designed for everyone, regardless of age, profession, gender, sexual preference or relationship status. We believe that the issues surrounding love, work, culture and self-knowledge affect us all. Some people choose to attend as a couple, others prefer to come alone, but all are welcome.
