The School of Life Friends Membership

“Life, properly felt, is an infinitely alarming process even in its apparently calmer stretches.”


The School of Life teachings have had quite an influence on my wellbeing over the past year. It's through reading and reviewing many of their titles on my platform that I gained a deeper understanding of mental illness, getting along with colleagues, working on my personal relationships, and coping with my anxiety. 

I dived into many of their books through a challenging period in my life last year, where I was able to use them in addition to therapy and nutrition to aid my eating disorder recovery. I even brought highlighted words of wisdom to groups and meals, reading excerpts to fellow patients. 

By the end of each treatment stay, most of the nurses and patients were reading their way through a stack of their own School of Life books.

I was excited when I came across a membership scheme offered by The School of Life, boasted as an inner-circle of the London-based company. It's designed to reward and recognize those closest to the organization. 

Members of the program are offered the opportunity to explore, and return to, every topic covered by The School of Life. 

Annual memberships are priced at $45 USD and benefits include:
  • Discounts for Virtual, One-day, and Professional workshops, Conversation evenings, and Special events
  • Priority ticket access
  • Friends exclusive special offers on books and retail products (sent every month)
  • The School of Life Friends Newsletter
  • 15% off The School of Life products
  • Access to tickets for Friends only Virtual Events
I always say that The School of Life books are the perfect gifts for friends and loved ones, so the 15% discount is enough to sway me into a membership.
