Foyles//School of Life Minis: Relationships

Wednesday 5th July 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

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

In this mini-class we will study why we make the choices we do - and how our early experiences give us scripts of whom we can love, and how. We examine harmful repetitive patterns and the extent to which we choose people who make us unhappy.

In addition, we study the most common techniques we use to sabotage our chances of fulfilment - and why, despite their costs to us, we unwittingly engage in them. We learn how there are always more possible partners than we initially believe and how we might come to broaden our unconscious scripts of whom we can love.

This installment of our Foyles//The School of Life mini series equips you with a crucial set of insights to help you make safer, more imaginative and more effective choices in love.
