Being alone has a serious branding issue. We’ve only ever had negative language to talk about flying solo – loneliness, isolation, ‘just me’ – while many of us are scared of being by ourselves, particularly after a year spent in lockdown.
But what if your time spent alone could be restorative and joyful, instead? What if it’s something you crave? What if it’s even just an hour you’ve carved out for yourself in the middle of a hectic week? After all, your lifelong relationship with yourself is the most important one you’ll ever have.
Join the founder of the Alonement podcast and author of Alonement: How To Be Alone & Absolutely Own It, Francesca Specter, as she explores the act of valuing your own company and dedicating quality time to yourself, whoever you are and whatever your romantic status. In conversation for this exclusive event, the reformed ‘extreme extrovert’ – who once struggled to spend even an hour alone – shares her practical tips, insights from key experts and lessons from guests of the Alonement podcast - including Alain de Botton, Florence Given, Konnie Huq and Vick Hope.
Don’t miss this unique and insightful evening, revealing how we can all thrive by ourselves, whatever our circumstances, and harness the untapped power of some meaningful time with me, myself and I.
‘A hugely generous and thoughtful book which reminds us of the distinction between loneliness on the one hand and solitude on the other - and emphasises the dignity and adventure of a life lived on one’s own terms ’ - ALAIN DE BOTTON
‘A kind, wise celebration of solo living - a joyous invitation to make your own declaration of independence!’ - DAISY BUCHANAN
