The School of Life Conference Switzerland — 12 to 14 October 2018
The School of Life is coming to Switzerland. We are bringing The School of Life Conference to the vibrant city of Zürich on 12-14 October with a transformative and properly entertaining three-day event on the most important ideas we teach. Our conference aims to transform lives and build the best kinds of connections. It is designed to equip participants with a toolkit of Emotional Skills that can revolutionise relationships, careers and self-understanding.

What to Expect
Our conference is hugely memorable and distinctive. For a start, you are not being taught in entirely standard ways. The experts on stage don’t merely lecture to a passive audience; they invite almost continuous interaction, getting participants to look inside themselves, to complete a variety of psychological exercises and to share their stories with others.
Talks are peppered with films, pieces of music and visual prompts; all the senses are properly stimulated to keep the mind fresh and receptive. Furthermore, there is an enormous emphasis on friendship. We are not merely seated quietly on our own, isolated from other participants. We are guided to mingle, form smaller and larger groups and reveal meaningful things to one another. It is impossible to leave after three days without having made quite a few firm friends.
