  • New England Stoics practice class 2022

    Link visible for attendees

    Details
    The New England Stoics Practice Class meets every third Sunday of the month from 12 PM - 2 PM ET led by Marc and Mike. This class is only accessible via a subscription fee. The subscription will be $2 a month with a 30-day free trial. IT is being hosted on our sister meetup page https://www.meetup.com/NESPracticeClass/
    The price goes to maintaining our Meetup subscription, the NEStoics.org website, and minimizing costs for other events like Stoicon-X New England and (hopefully) NES Stoic Camp.

    CURRICULUM

    This year, we hope to grow in our knowledge and practice of Stoicism with a structure that will allow us to explore a little more broadly some foundational concepts and practices in Stoicism. The curriculum this year will be: Stoic approaches to Physics, Ethics, and Logic. We will explore connections between these traditional subfields of philosophy and the Stoic disciplines and virtues. We will focus on applying philosophy to everyday life, both during class and in between classes through homework assignments. We are still in the process of planning the details of each class and will announce those details on the Practice Class Meetup page.

    MEMBER CO-TEACHING

    Also new this year is member co-teaching. We are inviting our regular members to help us co-teach the Stoicism Practice Class with either Mike or Marc. We are all learners in this practice, but we also all have a lot to teach each other. If you are interested in co-teaching one or more of the Stoicism Practice Classes, please fill out this short survey by January 15: https://forms.gle/qjedA36yPir8xs3f8.

    DISCORD

    We have a dedicated Discord server. We will share the link with all who attend the meeting. We will be adding a private channel for the Practice Class so we can continue conversations that we have in class.

    Are you a woman? and would you like to explore how the Philosophy of Stoicism can help you navigate the obstacles of life and bring peace of mind to the most challenging of moments? How to develop Stoical Practices in your day to day life to maintain composure and tranquility no matter what life may throw our way? Women seem to juggle a life that requires us to be many people rolled up into one. Please join our meeting to use as an open forum to discuss the challenges each of us face as women in relationships of all facets of life. Let us as a group explore concerns and stresses. We can develop a community for discussion that is indicative to our gender outlook and then to face a world with our passions and goals in clear understanding first to ourselves and then to navigate with confidence as we enter our day to day lives.

    This forum is to inspire women. It is also to encourage women to be comfortable in joining the discussions and organized classes of our New England Stoics that meets every other Sunday enriching us as a whole and educating each other as to how to handle a modern life full of conundrums!

    All you need to bring is your open mind, brilliant being, and perhaps pen and paper to take notes on your thoughts and inspirations to be shared.
    This is an ONLINE event .
