As many of you know already, Stoic Week is coming up next month, running from Monday, October 18 to Sunday, October 25. The Stoic Week course is now open for enrollment here. The main Stoicon conference will be taking place virtually on Saturday, October 17.
In addition to that event, there is an entire season of Stoic events ahead, available virtually, called Stoicon-Xs. These were originally smaller local events for those who could not make it to the main Stoicon (or who wanted a bit more after the main Stoicon in the same city where it was hosted). In this year of pandemic, like Stoicon itself, the Stoicon-Xs have gone virtual (with the exception of the , and that means that they offer much wider access than the local in-person events.
The first of these Stoicon-X events has already taken place. That was Stoicon-X New York, earlier this month. If you missed it, you can still watch videos of the talks provided by Donald Robertson and Brian Johnson.
We have, by my count, eight more Stoicon-X events lined up in October and November (including one later today), so you might want to clear some space on your calendar.
Each of the events has a page with more information, so feel free to check them out. Then you can see the event schedule, activities, and all the other particulars. These all look like great Stoicon-X events!
