“We are responsible for some things, while there are others for which we cannot be held responsible. The former include our judgement, our impulse, our desire, aversion and our mental faculties in general; the latter include the body, material possessions, our reputation, status – in a word, anything not in our power to control. The former are naturally free, unconstrained and unimpeded, while the latter are frail, inferior, subject to restraint – and none of our affair.”

Epictetus, Enchiridion, 1. 1-2.

Welcome to our website, where we bring together a community of people who are passionate about exploring the ancient philosophy of Stoicism. Our group meets monthly to discuss Stoicism, both as a philosophy and as a way of life.

Stoicism is a philosophy that originated in ancient Greece and has been practiced by people for over 2,000 years. It emphasizes the development of self-control, inner calm, and rationality as a way to achieve a fulfilling life. The Stoics believed that by focusing on what is within our control and accepting what is outside of it, we can live a life of virtue, wisdom, and inner peace.

Our website is a resource hub for individuals who seek to learn more about Stoicism, including meetup opportunities, further learning, shared resources, links to other groups, and a supportive community. We are committed to providing teaching, training, and support for those who want to integrate Stoicism into their lives.

Our mission goes beyond serving the needs of the individual. We aim to develop a community of caring, thoughtful, and virtue-oriented individuals who are dedicated to building community capacity and resilience. By working together, we can exemplify the Stoic message that we are all part of a larger whole and that we do best when we improve ourselves and our communities.

We welcome other Stoic groups to register and link in with our existing network. We believe that by collaborating and sharing knowledge, we can create a more robust Stoic community that can benefit everyone.

Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you find it to be a valuable resource on your journey towards a Stoic way of life.
