Events at The School of Life

Events are at the heart of what we do at The School of Life. As all the best schools know, there’s no substitute for learning about a topic from an engaging expert alongside a group of thoughtful, open-minded peers. Whether you’re new to The School of Life and looking for a short introduction to a particular topic, or wish to undertake a comprehensive programme of development and make changes in every area of your life, we offer events suited to you.

Classes – £55*

Each of our classes are a friendly and welcoming two-and-a-half hour introduction to one of twelve core topics around the themes of love, work, self and culture for up to 35 people. They’re an opportunity to gain unique insights, learn practical skills, and meet and share with others grappling with the same questions.

One-Day Workshops – £150*

For those seeking a more intensive form of study, our one-day workshops combine three classes on one of our core themes into a single transformative day for up to 22 people. They cover topics such as Finding a Fulfilling Job, Making Relationships Work and Improving Your Emotional Intelligence.

Five-Day Schools – £950*

Our five day schools offer the most comprehensive overview of our teaching; a week-long course of study exploring our entire curriculum with an intimate group. Master all the fundamentals of emotional life and become a more mature, contented and well-rounded human being - all in a single week.  

The School of Life Conference – £999*

Our conference is the ultimate way to experience The School of Life; a binannual international symposium where hundreds of people gather to explore all of our most important ideas for transforming lives for the better. Gain a toolkit of emotional skills and discover a more satisfying and meaningful way of living.

Professional Workshops – £110*
