About The New School at Commonweal:
The New School presents conversations, book signings, art, and lectures with thought and action leaders of our time. We are a learning community of 4,000 people in the Bay Area and around the world dedicated to learning what matters. Most of our events are free, and so are our podcasts and videos—200 on iTunesVimeo, and our Library.

The New School focuses on the emergent, seeking out the thought and action leaders who are bringing discussion, beauty, and change to the world. We present events in many areas: arts and sciences, health and the environment, and inner life. We follow streams of inquiry, including our End-of-Life Conversations, and series on Art and HealingArchetypal Psychology, and Ibn ‘Arabi.

There are no required beliefs or perspectives, and we aren’t afraid to ask the difficult questions. Whether it is grief, or joy, or wonder, we are enriched by sharing the exploration together.

The New School was founded and is directed by Michael Lerner and is coordinated by Kyra Epstein.
