Stoicism Today is a group of psychotherapists and philosophers working together to produce resources for practising Stoic philosophy, the 2300 year old philosophy as a way of life, today.
Stoicism was practised by philosophers such as Epictetus the freed slave and teacher, Marcus Aurelius the Roman Emperor (who wrote the famous ‘Meditations’) and Seneca in the Graeco-Roman world. It emphasised inner strength, meeting events with wisdom, moderation and courage, and outer excellence, through affection and justice towards others.
