“I would like to suggest that a solution to many of the challenges we face may be to move beyond our conventional identifications with self, culture, nation, and even humanity, to an identification with life – Lifeism”.

Its thought that counts

Mission Statement

We prepare people for Life, at any time during life.

Providing the highest level knowledge of sense, meaning and purpose in life.


Because how you think is how you live, how you live is how you prosper, how you prosper shapes how you think.

“Satisfaction and living an extra-ordinary life are not achieved through psychology, endlessly delving over what went wrong in your childhood. It is also not achieved through Life Coaching, setting short term personal goals to meet your day to day concerns. Or simply thinking positively, convincing yourself that in some way by building confidence through self-motivation, it will solve everything. 

True enlightenment, success and contentment, only comes from a real understanding of life itself and therefore what it means to be human and how you can realise your true potential within this”.

          Ed Calyan, 2017                       Founder of the             Institute of Life


 We believe in Life


Perception, Judgement & Wisdom

If you choose life, then you should learn how to live.

The Institute of Life is the affiliate body which administers and verifies Lifeism® and our courses enable people to climb the life needs & wants hierarchy to productivity, success and happiness.

In the very earliest days of the Institute it became very clear that a few life coaching goals are useful, but actually, people want so much more. They really need life philosophy, where they can experience proper personal development through a real connection to life itself – to truly achieve self-realisation.

To explore a deeper understanding of rationality, as the means to discover the true nature of being, people actually needed a manual, a route-map to happiness.

With the completion of this human manual within the Institute, there is now a definitive guide to the human condition, making it possible to understand this purpose, by first understanding the meaning in life itself.

The day to day decisions which we all make, are crucial to the conditions in which we live and therefore the way of life we experience. So changing thinking, changes lives, but only for the better.



The Institute is the home of this knowledge of life and encourages people to invest in themselves – so that they can experience a better life and discover the way to well-being.

So don’t accept anything less than Lifeism – the complete life knowledge you need to be happy and successful. Enrolling at the Institute of Life for your life learning, embraces the factual nature of life itself and consequential secret of how you can live well within it.
