Description

HOW TO FIND LOVE (IN ENGLISH)

Choosing a partner is one of the trickiest and most consequential decisions we will ever make. The costs of repeated failure, in terms of distress and wasted time, are immense. Partners used to be found for us by parents and society, but now we are expected to follow our feelings - to locate people by ourselves, according to intuition. This should be an improvement, but all too often our emotions pull us towards hugely problematic characters and dynamics, according to a logic we seldom fully understand.

In How to Find Love, we will:

  • Improve our understanding of why we make the choices we do.
  • Discover how our early experiences give us scripts regarding whom we can love, and how.
  • Examine harmful repetitive patterns.
  • Ask whether we sometimes reject love and affection because it makes us anxious.
  • Study three of the most common techniques by which we sabotage our chances of fulfilment.
  • Look at common problems that arise in long-term relationships, including ‘Perfectionism’ and the difficulty of learning from one another.
  • Explore ways to improve our existing relationships.

This class equips us with a crucial set of insights to help us make safer, more imaginative and more effective choices in love.

FURTHER INFORMATION

How to Find Love is one of the twelve classes that comprise our core curriculum. Our classes tackle the core themes of emotional life, from relationships and the workplace, to understanding the self and exploring our relationship with culture.

ABOUT CLASSES

Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture and group activity and conversation.
