What we're about

Stoicism is a philosophy geared towards living the best life possible for your own well being as well as that of others. Stoicism is not about cold detachment but about joyful engagement with your circumstances and freedom from anxiety and other negative emotions. Stoic ideas have never been more relevant than in our complex and ever-changing modern world. Whether you're just curious or have been reading Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius for years, please come join us as we discuss our practices and share resources with each other to try to become a little bit better at living each day. Fellow travelers from other contemplative traditions such as Buddhism are more than welcome to share in this journey, too.
