Details

We will continue looking at the spiritual/psychological exercises found in Stoicism and how one applies Stoic philosophy in modern life. Stoicism and the Art of Happiness by Donald J. Robertson is a good introduction to Stoicism and will be our guide.

Please read chapter 11 (The Stoic contemplation of death), ahead of time. It's of course helpful, but not required to have done the reading to attend.

Note: Chapter 11 is only available in the second edition of the book. However, it's available online.

Read it here: https://donaldrobertson.name/2014/10/10/the-contemplation-of-death-sample-chapter-from-teach-yourself-stoicism-2014/

Since this is our last chapter, you may also find the "Stoic Therapy Toolkit" helpful in putting it all into practice.
