What we're about
Stoicism is an ancient Greco-Roman philosophy that is experiencing a modern Renaissance. The first Stoa was established by Zeno of Citium in Athens around the year 300 BC. Stoicism has guided the lives of slaves and emperors, clerics and soldiers, sports people and artists; and just ordinary people like all of us, through the ages.
Through this Meetup we intend to establish the first Stoa on African soil in Pretoria. We shall explore Stoic Philosophy as an answer to a good and meaningful life in uncertain and volatile times. We shall link up with Stoics internationally and hopefully participate in International Stoic Week early in October 2018.
We invite anyone with an interest in Stoicism to attend. It should be of specific interest to anyone who faces uncertainty and/or volatility in his or her personal or professional life. This could include business and sports people, professional people, clerics, retirees, etc.
