School of Life Snakes and Ladders


The School of Life is an organisation built to help us find calm, self-understanding, resilience and connection – especially during troubled times.  They place emphasis on the need to understand ourselves better, so that we can secure serenity and make optimally reliable decisions, particularly around love and work.

Climb to Emotional Maturity

The School of Life has taken Snakes and Ladders and turned it into a great game about emotional life: the ladders represent all those moments when you learn how to be more of a grown-up, the snakes the times when you end up acting, against your better nature, like a tantrum-prone toddler. Depending on where you land, you pick up cards that outline, with humour and wisdom, the ingredients of emotional maturity – and ask you to share insights from your own life. As we play, we’re entertained, amusingly educated and subtly invited to continue to try to grow up – a goal that, as the game kindly implies, none of us ever quite master completely.
