The School of Life is a global organization helping people lead more fulfilled lives. It is a resource for helping us understand ourselves, for improving our relationships, our careers, and our social lives--as well as for helping us find calm and get more out of our leisure hours. They do this through films, workshops, books, and gifts--and through a warm and supportive community. You can find The School of Life online, in stores and in welcoming spaces around the globe.
