The School of Life has branches all around the world but till now, it hasn’t been directly involved in the US. But now we’re coming, with a big 3 day conference that we’re going to be running in San Francisco, starting on the 23rd of March, 2018. Taking place in the beautiful Yerba Buena center right in the heart of San Francisco, this is a three day event about everything we care about at the School of Life: emotional intelligence, wisdom, self-understanding, love, friendship and meaning. The conference will mirror what happened in our first conference in Lisbon Portugal in October 2017. That means we’ll have lectures in the day, great meals together, the best kinds of interactions, and chats about everything that matters late into the night. It’ll be a true chance to experience a globally-minded community dedicated to learning, kindness, self-exploration and wisdom. The conference lasts three days and is led by our founder and creative lead, Alain de Botton – and will feature our best teachers, and our very best, and most transformative ideas. If you’re interested in coming to San Francisco to meet us at the end of March, please click on the link on the screen now. You’ll learn a lot – return with a huge number of useful new ideas and make friends for life. We hope to see you there.
