Every now and again the internet opens up a new little cavern I have not yet explored. Upon finding it I am usually down the rabbit hole and feeling my way through its nooks and crannies. But most the time these dugouts are nothing more than a waste of time.
However recently I found something that the further I explore the more and more I am finding gems to keep with me.
I want to share that with you.
It is the school of life. The way the describe themselves is like so :
"The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one's past, how to achieve calm, and how better to understand and, where necessary change, the world.
The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities - from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. Through our digital channels and branches, you will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment."
Pretty Lofty Stuff. But I can say very comfortably it is at the very least entertaining and on the higher end enlightening. All of the videos they have available have lovely animations but they are also narrated quite nicely.
Here are a few of my favorite videos : Enjoy
