What we're about
This group is to introduce Stoic philosophy to anyone interested in living a happier and more fulfilling life and to help students of Stoicism practice the philosophy in their daily lives.
Stoicism is a practical philosophy for guiding people in living a good life through cultivating personal excellence, or virtue. While Stoicism flourished in ancient Greece and Rome, it is seeing a resurgence of popularity today as a result of its practical value in helping people experience more tranquility and joy amid the complexity of the modern world. Stoicism involves focusing on what we can control in life and not worrying about things we cannot control, enhancing healthy emotions through reasoned judgement, and treating all of humanity with compassion and respect.
Monthly meetings support people in increasing their knowledge of Stoicism and applying it in their daily lives. Meetings include discussions of Stoic texts, modern interpretations and applications, and the Stoic perspective on common problems people may have.
