Friends’ Conversation Evening- on the theme of 'Travel'
Travelling well can be difficult: it’s incredibly exciting on the one hand but stressful on the other. Too often we can get stuck focusing on scheduling or when we’re next going to have a coffee. Yet the ultimate goal of travel isn’t to get that perfect snapshot for our friends or to tick off a list of famous sights. Rather, it’s to reach a psychological destination: a different state of mind. We hope you come away from our discussions with a clearer sense of what you want to get out of your travels and what states of mind you’d like to take home.
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.
