Mondrian London at Sea Containers

London SE1 9PD

Our grandparents lived with the promise of a future golden age of leisure, but today we are more shackled to our work than ever before. It’s hard enough to find time to eat in peace, let alone see our partners and families, go to the gym and enjoy our hobbies. What gets in the way of re-designing our lives? Can we negotiate a finer marriage not only with work but with time itself?

Explore the delicate work-life balance at a CPD accredited workshop, brought to you by The School of Life. This class will discuss the current landscape of work, as well as the art of play, promising relief from the pressures of the dominant work ethic and our relentless drive to succeed. We'll look at how difficulties in our working lives can be symptomatic of neurotic attachments to being busy, probe what lies behind our assumptions about leisure, and practice reversing our thinking about free time, making it 'time on' rather than 'time off'.

Hosted in Mondrian's beautiful Screening Room, a light breakfast will also be provided. 

As spaces for this event are limited, we can only accept two RSVPs per business. We will also ask you to reconfirm your place the week before the event. 


Throughout March, we are hosting a range of events and activities focused on learning new skills. Find out more here, and join the conversation with #BetterYou.
