A one-day festival of lectures, games and group discussion about learning to love at every stage

Over the past decade, The School of Life has been offering classes and workshops designed to help us cope with the many varied challenges of love: how to find it, judge its viability and make it last. For the first time, this One-Day Festival brings together the best of The School of Life’s teaching on love into a highly sociable, immersive experience. Through a combination of lectures, films, exercises, interactive games and group discussion, the day will give attendees a toolkit of strategies for navigating the course of love.

Learning to Love has been designed for absolutely everybody, whether in a relationship or not - anyone who’s ever found that the course of true love does not always run smooth. Led by expert members of our faculty, including a keynote address from our founder, Alain de Botton, it promises to be a fascinating and consoling exploration of one of the greatest challenges of life.

Alain de Botton is the founder and Chairman of The School of Life. Alain was born in Zurich, Switzerland and now lives in London. He is a writer of essayistic books that have been described as a ‘philosophy of everyday life.’ He’s written on love, travel, architecture and literature, including the titles ‘How Proust Can Change Your Life’ and ‘The Consolations of Philosophy.’ He is also the founder of Living Architecture, an enterprise that asks top architects to build holiday homes for rental around the UK.

Raul Aparici is the Faculty Lead at The School of Life. He also works as a coach, consultant and facilitator and teaches on the Postgraduate Coaching Programme at Birkbeck, University of London . With a diverse background which includes a career in the fitness industry, a BA in English Literature and an MA in Critical Theory, he likes to match academic insights with real life wisdom. He has a particular interest in psychoanalytic concepts and is generally curious about the human condition.
