Stoic Week is an free online, self-guided one-week course introducing people to the practice of Stoicism in the modern world. The event is organized by Modern Stoicism (https://modernstoicism.com). It's great for people new to Stoicism, as well as people looking for guidance to actually put it into practice. The course starts on October 1. (https://modernstoicism.com/enroll-now-for-stoic-week-2018/) You can get a flavor of the event by checking out the Stoic Week Handbook from 2016 (http://modernstoicism.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Stoic-Week-2016-Handbook-Stoicism-Today.pdf).
