Hello - and thanks for visiting Life Squared. 

I'm Richard Docwra - the founder, director and chief writer at Life Squared. More about me here.

If you're visiting for the first time, it's great to see you and if you're a regular visitor, welcome back - I really appreciate your support!


There are lots of great publications and resources on the Life Squared site - all free to use and download. They're categorised within 5 broad sections in the menu of the website (World, Ideas, Mind, Values, Life) - and you can browse through these by clicking on the menu at the bottom of this page.

Each of our online resources has several ways you can enjoy it – including a full-colour eBook, web page, audiobook, video and materials for teachers to use in schools. Just click on your choice in the ‘formats’ section of each page to download it. We also have beautiful printed copies of most resources so email us at [email protected] if you’d like to order any (at £5 each plus postage).  

Courses and events

Beyond our resources on the site, we also offer a programme of courses (both on-line and in person) plus local events, talks and walks to help you navigate life in a more thoughtful way. Click on the ‘Courses’ and ‘Community & Events’ menu items above to find out what’s on near you. If you’d like to bring Life Squared events to your local community get in touch on [email protected] for details of how you can become a Community Activator!
