Course overview

Learn and apply the ancient playbook for living well

The philosophy of Stoicism offers a solution to the crises of life. For that reason, millions of people have turned to it to overcome adversity.

By mastering the philosophy, you can apply ancient wisdom day after day – for a more calm, resilient, and virtuous life.

But it's not easy.

Without guidance or a community, it can be difficult to apply the lessons when you need them most. That's why we created this course.

Each module is grounded in the ancient texts, modern case studies, and our practical experience teaching thousands of people how to be more Stoic. Every week we'll cover the essential Stoic ideas and how you can apply them to your life.

You will not only learn this philosophy from us but also engage with other individuals seriously walking the same path.
