Retail Range Autumn / Winter 2017


The School of Life The School of Life is an organisation devoted to teaching us how to grow into happier, calmer, more successful people. Our retail offering is made up of a range of emotional wellbeing tools that can help us to flourish and better understand ourselves and the world. These items are elegant, surprising, smart, often witty and most of all, useful. Our tools help us to make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, find calm, nurture friendships and get the most out of culture. We arrange our products under themes that customers tend to be most curious and passionate about – and where we know we can bring about the most powerful and positive change. These are products to entertain, delight and genuinely transform us.

LOVE It is estimated that 70% of a person’s life-satisfaction depends on the quality of their relationships. Yet this is an area where we too often get stuck, unable to make ourselves understood or find the sort of love we need. Our tools are designed to help us escape our frustrations, learn to communicate properly and put us on the path to sincere and flourishing relationships.

Work Most of us don’t want to work merely for money: we also want to ensure that work can be a source of creativity, meaning and (on a good day) pleasure. The tools in this range help us to overcome some of the obstacles to finding the sort of work that can truly satisfy and develop us.

Self-knowledge In Ancient Greece, when the philosopher Socrates was asked to sum up what all philosophical commandments could be reduced to, he replied: ‘Know yourself.’ Self-knowledge matters so much because it is only on the basis of an accurate sense of who we are that we can make reliable decisions – particularly around love and work. These tools help us to understand the hard-to-access bits of our minds and to know our deep personalities as well as we can.

culture The School of Life is hugely interested in art, literature, psychology and philosophy – and draws upon these disciplines for its many ideas. It proposes that works of culture were all made, in one way or another, with the idea of improving how we live. This range of products connects up culture with our own dilemmas and hopes around love, work and our psyches, and invites us to see culture as a resource with which to address the complexities of being human.
