Join Greg Lopez (founder and organizer of the NYC Stoics, Director of Membership for The Stoic Fellowship, and co-organizer of Stoicon ’16) and Massimo Pigliucci (professor of philosophy at CUNY, founder and organizer of The Stoic School of Life, and co-organizer of Stoicon ’16) for an intensive introduction to the theory and practice of Stoicism at Stoic Camp NY 2017! The Camp will be run from August 31 – September 3 at Stony Point Center, in Stony Point, NY.
Over the course of 4 days and 3 nights, attendees will be guided through the philosophy of Stoicism. We will use ancient texts almost exclusively as our starting point. From there, we will discuss how the ancient philosophy of Stoicism can be updated and practiced in the modern world.
Since this is an intensive introduction, it will be suitable for complete beginners. But given the intensive nature of the retreat, people familiar with Stoicism will also get quite a bit out of it (fate permitting). This year’s curriculum centered around the four virtues and featuring readings primarily from Seneca. Previous years have featured readings primarily from the Enchiridion and Meditations and were organized around the Three Disciplines.

The Camp is limited to only 14 participants, and spots are almost full, although a waitlist is available. You can RSVP on the NYC Stoics Meetup page, and also find more information there.
