About the Show
Our late teens and twenties are testing times that promise to define the rest of our lives. Dealing with the pressures of becoming an adult, finding the right career and falling in love can leave us feeling overwhelmed, lost, isolated and unfulfilled. It doesn’t help that the world is changing so quickly that most of the old rules about work and relationships no longer seem to apply.
Where might we look for guidance along this often bewildering path to adulthood? How can we learn to find the courage and resilience to leave the map behind and wander off the beaten track? Most importantly, how do we go about answering the single most urgent question of our youth: ‘What exactly should I be doing with my life?’
This June, Mari Andrew will join The School of Life for a series of exclusive events on her first visit to Australia.
Mari will share six guiding themes that have helped her navigate her journey to adulthood. Drawing on works from her recently released debut first book, Am I There Yet?: The Loop-de-loop, Zigzagging Journey to Adulthood, Andrew will explore how qualities like resilience, isolation, empathy, authenticity, discovery and healing can act as a compass throughout our formative years and help us develop a healthier and balanced perspective on life.
