We are doing a 13 part series on “A Handbook for New Stoics: How to Thrive in a World Out of Your Control” Greg Lopez will be leading 6 of these Meetups and giving us exercises from the book for the other 7 Meetups which will be facilitated by others familiar with the book.
Greg Lopez has graciously agreed to walk us through selected weeks of Stoic exercises from his and Massimo’s new book “A Handbook for New Stoics: How to Thrive in a World Out of Your Control”. The book offers a systematic 52 week program of Stoic exercises to build Stoicism into your life. Greg uses the interactive features of Zoom Meetups ingeniously to demonstrate hands on exercises.

If you have been using Greg’s book, you are welcome to volunteer to help facilitate one of the “Open” Weekly exercise above. Please message Shrikant.
I strongly recommend that you get Greg’s book, and use this series of six Meetups to learn from Greg how to actually apply each of the lessons so that you can practice rest of the lessons yourself more efficiently.
