If you want to be an engineer, you go to university and study engineering.  If you want to perfect salsa dancing, you go to your local dance school.  And, if you want to master a mean risotto, any number of cooking shows on TV will put you on your way.

But where do you go to learn important ‘life’ things?  You know, the tricky stuff  you’re supposed to learn through experience?  Well, now Melbourne has a place. Time to dust off your school blazer and pull those knee high socks up, you’re going back to school.

The School of Life opened in Melbourne in March 2014 and was the first international branch of the school founded by renowned writer and philosopher of Alain de Botton in London in 2008.  There are now several schools  schools around the globe including Paris, Amsterdam, London, Antwerp, Belgrade, Istanbul.

There are classes on everything from finding career fulfilment,  how to be creative, and how to reach your potential, to moving on from a relationship, how to understand your past, how to spend time alone and understanding mindfulness. You know, things that should have been in the school curriculum but were replaced with Pythagoras theorem.

At the heart of the School is a desire to develop greater emotional intelligence through the help of culture.  Experienced faculty staff guide and encourage a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature and psychology to the visual arts. The teachings are all designed to stimulate and expand your mind and help you live wisely.

The curriculum is taught by way of classes, workshops, retreats, intensives, secular sermons and therapies, all of which are in person. The School also publish books, film  events and sell a range of tools to assist you in your quest to live a more fulfilled life.

New classes and events are released each quarter so sharpen your pencils and get ready for school.
