Back to School meets the School of Life
School is more than just a place to learn reading, writing and arithmetic! Life lessons are gained through the experience of living. Sometimes we have good teachers, who guide us in our growth by sharing their knowledge and techniques. Other times we learn from our peers about how to be our best selves with compassion and integrity. And sometimes it is circumstance, or we might call it fate, that inspires and challenges us to make the most of life.
This selection of films and television shows take place in institutions of learning, but have deeper, more spiritual life lessons to share as well. School is a great metaphor for our personal evolution. It reminds us we can’t reach our goals without making ourselves ready to live them. And just like in any good school, we have several subjects to focus our lessons upon: History and Religion, Poetry and Music, Mathematics and Science. Ready, set, study!
