MEETINGS

  • Regular meetings occur every 2ND SATURDAY of the month at 9am
  • Theory meetings occur every 4TH WEDNESDAY of the month at 6pm
  • Special meetings occur sporadically (see below)

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER: Instead of meeting in-person, I am hosting events using Google Meet. This is free and easy to use—just RSVP as usual and then follow the invite link in the meeting descriptions on Meetup.com. In the meantime, stay healthy, avoid catastrophic thinking, keep in mind the ‘dichotomy of control‘, support your small businesses however you can, and protect our vulnerable population by following city and state guidelines. — Justin K.



NEXT REGULAR MEETING! [RSVP HERE]

When: Saturday, July 11th at 9am (until 11am)

Where: ONLINE VIA GOOGLE HANGOUTS MEET (RSVP and use invite link at Meetup.com)

What about:

Note on Translation: We’ll be following the selection of letters found in the the Penguin Classic’s “Letters from a Stoic” trans. Robin Campbell (1969)… You may use that translation, the public domain translation by Gummere (1925), OR any other translation that you prefer.

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS

The meetings tend to proceed as follows …

  1. The facilitator makes any administrative announcements there may be
  2. Attendees can share any insights gleaned from ‘outside reading’ (that is, any Stoic/Stoical readings besides the group’s current reading)
  3. Attendees can share their experience with implementing Stoic exercises/techniques (these are often drawn from modern Stoic texts by Pigliucci, Lopez, Robertson, Irvine, Sellars, Holiday, etc.)
  4. We will all then have the main discussion about the current reading (or continuing a past discussion that was left unfinished)

In terms of preparing for the main discussion, you may…

  1. select a passage or two to share and discuss;
  2. think of questions to propose (or answer) and/or
  3. email me in advance at lastoics[at]gmail[dot]com if you would like to ensure we cover something that you find particularly meaningful.

See you then!

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED A PDF OF THE READING

In terms of preparing, you should read as much as you can (though you don’t need to do the entire reading to get something out of these meetings!). At the very least, …

  2. think of questions to propose (or answer) and/OR
  3. email me in advance (lastoics[at]gmail[dot]com) if you would like to ensure we cover something that you find particularly meaningful.

  1. Good day,

    My name is David and I would love to attend your stoicism meetings and other philosophy topics. I am developing a growth in the subject and would like partake in ideas sharing meetings as yours. Looking forward your response.

    Thank you.
