What is ‘How to Enjoy Life’?

How to Enjoy Life is a 3 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our classroom at our London HQ. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture. The aim of this class is to help you to develop a core emotional skill.

Why should I attend?

Living a life of great value and importance can be liberating. Learning how to appreciate and be grateful for what we have is vital in living a fulfilled life which we can enjoy. Where we can use art and literature to gently and wisely make more of what we have.

We can develop tools of re-enchantment, connecting with a part of life that highlights the important aspects we often neglect. The inability to have a sense of appreciation isn’t always from a place of laziness or because we are particularly bad, but because we sometimes face obstacles which come against our ability to see the good. 

What will I learn?

How to Enjoy Life teaches:

  •  The skills of appreciation and gratitude.
  • How little we sometimes notice what is around us.
  • How to awaken ourselves to the beauty and value of the things, people and ideas with which we are surrounded.
  • How to properly absorb what is already precious in our lives.
  • The art of sampling happiness without being sentimental or deluded - a skill we term ‘cheerful despair’.

This class costs £55 and is run by an experienced, compassionate member of our faculty. You can read more about our faculty here.
