Practical philoosphy for everyday life

Our aim is to form more than to inform.

    Thank you again for assembling a 5-point summary of Stoic fundamentals:
    - Live with purpose
    - Face the truth
    - Act justly
    - Practice indifference to indifferent things
    - Live gratefully

    Consider organising a workshop to focus on and expand these – e.g. sources, terminology, purpose?

    Will we get a refund of the FIFTY EUROS!!!! if we think its rubbish? I went to one before from 'The School of Practical Philosophy' with two friends who were doing actual philosophy in university and it was total hocus pocus!
