The purpose of this group is to bring together people interested in discussing and learning more about Stoicism as a practical philosophy of life.
And what is Stoicism?
"Stoicism is predominantly a philosophy of personal ethics informed by its system of logic and its views on the natural world. According to its teachings, as social beings, the path to happiness for humans is found in accepting this moment as it presents itself, by not allowing ourselves to be controlled by our desire for pleasure or our fear of pain, by using our minds to understand the world around us and to do our part in nature's plan, and by working together and treating others fairly and justly." (source: Wikipedia)
While we may using reading resources as support for our meetings, this group is not for disengaged study of ancient philosophy from an academic perspective. Instead, its purpose is to help people put Stoic philosophy into practice in their daily lives, enabling them to live the best life they can.
Join us today and let's take this journey together!
