Contrary to popular usage of the word "Stoic", Stoicism does not advocate suppressing emotion. Stoicism is a philosophy originating in Ancient Greece and Rome. Rather than a set of abstract ideas, Stoicism is built around the question of what makes a good life. It encourages daily practice to cultivate character and virtue while managing unhealthy emotions like fear, craving and anger.
This group is for people interested in learning and practicing Stoicism. The emphasis will be on practice although the theory of Stoicism will be covered as well. The intent is to support and motivate each other by sharing ideas, resources and experiences."
