Practical Stoicism

Practical Stoicism

Those approaching Stoicism for the first time, with the intention of adopting it as a life philosophy, can find it both impossibly dense and extreme in its expectations of its students. For this reason, it is important that there exist a practical interpretation of the high-minded values of this ancient philosophy - to make the understanding and adoption of the basic tenets of Stoicism easier for those just starting out. This podcast helps newcomers get acquainted and comfortable with the practical aspects of Stoicism - it is a stepping stone to those heavier and denser parts of the philosophy that we all, if we truly wish to commit ourselves to practicing the philosophy of Stoicism, must delve into eventually. Episodes publish weekly.

Listeing to the words, advice, ramblings, and complainings of most people will do nothing for you. But perhaps there are some people whom thinking of, or listening to, would benefit your own goal of creating a virtuous character and healthy mind. Let's explore that in Meditation #4 of Book Three.
