The Handbook for New Stoics Week 1: Discover What’s Really in Your Control
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.
This week’s lesson: Week 1 — Discover what’s really in your control, and what’s not.
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. Get the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Handbook-New-S…
