The School of Life

    While the number of stores claiming to sell things to make life physically easier are a dime a dozen, The School of Life provides a helping hand, via its programs, services and shop, with all of the things that plague us mentally. Founded in the summer of 2008 by the ‘philosopher of everyday life’ Alain de Botton, the school is passionate about addressing the everyday elements of life such as careers, love and health. Classes on offer range from ‘How to Live in a Wired World’ to ‘How Necessary is a Relationship’. The School of Life even takes its approach outside of the traditional classroom set up but organizing weekend excursions and communal feasts. Don’t have time for a class? De Botton’s team provides a Bibliotherapy service, providing individual or couples consultations to guide you to the perfect book to aid you through whatever life throws.Show lessRead more
