London Stoics have a talk on September 13th at 7pm in Senate House Library (Room 102) to prepare for Stoic Week, and Donald Robertson from the Modern Stoicism team will be there. More information is available on the Facebook page for the event.
We are very lucky to have a special guest at the London Stoics this month: Donald Robertson. Donald is one of the founders of modern Stoicism & Stoic Week and is also a psychotherapist, specialising in CBT. Donald has contributed a great deal to the modern resurgence in Stoic philosophy, with numerous talks at Stoicon, blog posts, online courses and he also runs the main stoicism Facebook page! He has also written several books related to Stoicism and CBT including “Stoicism and the Art of Happiness” and “The Philosophy of CBT”. Donald will be talking to us about modern Stoicism and Stoic Week.
In this session we will discuss the annual Stoic Week, and look forward to this year’s event, which is 1st-7th October. Stoic Week is run by the modern stoicism project, and each year they produce a handbook and series of exercises and activities for participants. Stoic Week is the ideal introduction to the practical aspects of Stoic philosophy. But it’s also a great refresher if you’ve already started down this path.
