The School of Life

DevelopementThe School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.

Headquartered in London, we operate around the globe, delivering our services down a number of channels to suit your different needs. We offer classes and therapies in person. We also publish books, create films and make and sell a range of objects & tools that will assist you in the quest for a more fulfilled life. We also run a consulting and training service for businesses.


Being real. Unique. Never before there was so much longing for authenticity and never before is its market value higher than today. Do we experience a "terror of authenticity"? And if so: Can we escape from it? 

An inspiring talk with Philipp Hübl, Philosopher and bestselling -author of "The underground of thinking. A philosophy of the unconscious" and Svenja Flaßpöhler, deputy editor-in-chief of Philosophie magazine and author of the recently released book "To Forgive…." You'll find out more about our TSOL Special: "What is my real self?" – a talk with Philosopher & author Phillipp Hübl and Svenja Flaßpöhler on Sunday, 24th April at Palais Kulturbrauerei / Berlin, in co-operation with Philosophie Magazin.

The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.

Brands are adept at raising high hopes and expectations in the minds of consumers. But consumers today are getting increasingly cynical, sceptical and frustrated with brands who simply hold up the desired psychological destination signs (Freedom / Happiness / Calm / Good Relationships) without offering practical support in how to get to those places.

In other words, consumers are increasingly looking for brands to be more "meaningful" – to genuinely help them to lead more fulfilled lives.  

We know that consumers are commercially rewarding those brands that they consider to be meaningful*. We believe that many brands would do well to exploit the fact that there is a large but often underdeveloped dimension to their offering that they could capitalise on. 

Professional Development
from The School of Life

The secret of business success is, to an overwhelming extent, down to good psychology.

To compete today, a business has to be psychologically healthy, which means:

  • free of in-fighting
  • communicating optimally
  • equipped with an energising sense of purpose
  • led by a management team with an acute grasp of themselves,
  • their own motivations and the deeper functioning of their employees.

None of this is easy. That's why we exist. We are business psychologists dedicated to transforming the psychological functioning, and therefore success and well-being, of your organisation.

We work with:

  • individuals (motivation, communication, values,
  • psychological health, legacy)
  • teams (communication, conflict, vision, energy, creativity)
  • whole organisations (purpose, values, engagement with
  • customers and employees).

Transform the effectiveness and harmony of leaders and teams. Psychological solutions are in-depth and effective.


Nachhaltigkeit + die Entdeckung Trojanischer Pferde…

Populäre Projektionen dessen, wie eine Bewusstseinsveränderung aussehen wird, sind in den meisten Fällen nur eine Neugestaltung der „alten Denkschablonen „. Eine größere, bessere Box, in der das Paradigma aufgewertet wird, das die Bedingungen verbessert, unter denen wir unsere Sucht auf eine „grüne“ Art und Weise genießen können.

So wichtig wie das ökologische Bewusstsein ist, es ist nicht genug. Das neue Paradigma kann nicht aus der intellektuellen Abstraktion einer dualistischen Interpretation einer „besseren Welt“ verwirklicht werden, die auf der Infrastruktur der existierenden Varianten-Matrix aufbaut, die dieses Paradigma erzeugt.
