The School of Life’s 4-day Retreats are designed to help you heal from emotional challenges in an atmosphere of friendship, learning and discovery. Our Retreats are designed to offer participants a holistic approach to healing emotional pain in an atmosphere that is warm, creative and focused on change.

In the company of kind and like-minded fellow participants, you will be able to build up your mental well-being under the guidance of gentle, experienced and compassionate psychotherapists. The result will be a lighter, more serene and more creative sense of self – and a feeling of having finally broken through barriers that stood in the way of flourishing.


If you have any accessibility requirements, concerns, or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

Eco Practices

The School of Life is committed to ensuring that our therapeutic retreats are as sustainable as possible, ensuring we are minimizing the impact we have on the environment, whilst not compromising on comfort, style, or the overall experience.

This is why our retreats are delivered at 42 Acres, which “...aim to go beyond being sustainable into what we call regenerative. Being regenerative means being carbon-negative and biodiversity positive. Put simply, we aim to leave the earth in better shape than when we found it–not only for us but for generations to come.” - 42 Acres
