Event: How to Spend Time Alone, The School of Life / Central London
"We’ll be exploring what thinkers from Montaigne to Woolf have had to say about the distinction between solitude and loneliness. We’ll ask why being alone can sometimes feel so frightening, and what benefits there might be to overcoming our fears. We’ll consider what we can learn from the practices of hermitage and retreat from the world. And above all, we’ll ask if it’s really possible to be happy in partnerships, in friendships, at work and with family if we can’t also be happy by yourselves?"
Date: Wednesday 16th February - 18.30 - 21.30
Location: The School of Life, 70 Marchmont Street, WC1 1AB
