School of Life

Philosopher, professor and writer Alain de Botton is bringing his famed take on life – espoused in books, classes, and some great TED talks – to a very functional, wonderful level, with the “School of Life.” The school in Melbourne is open to the public, with classes like “How to have better conversations,” and “How to make a difference,” along with a one-day intensive on “Generating Creativity.” In addition to classes and intensives, there are communal meals and holidays, sermons (lectures), tours, and special events, like a session with an improvisation master. In the School of Life – there is something for everyone to learn.
