A list of my favorite sites for learning philosophy, personal and institutional projects, communities and more.
Modern Stoicism is an e-learning site dedicated to Stoicism and its application to everyday challenges.
The STOIC WEEK is an international event aimed to put Stoic philosophy back in the Agora, an introduction to Stoic philosophy as a way of life. Each day of the course takes a specific Stoic theme, such as cultivating the art of focussing on what is in our power, Stoic mindfulness, or cultivating affection towards others. There are guided audio meditations to support you in practising these key ideas. There is also a set morning meditation (philosophical preparation for the day ahead) and evening meditation (philosophical review of the day that has passed) to practise, as well as morning and evening quotations for reflection, taken from the works of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus. The course also guides you through the key ideas of Stoicism, key Stoic philosophers and ideas for further reading and practice.
The course is especially helpful for:
– building resilience
– approaching normally stressful or difficult daily situations wisely
– cultivating a more purposeful and meaningful life
– understanding what you cannot change whilst flourishing in what you can do, including in your relationships with others
– developing greater self-awareness of thoughts and emotions, and making wiser choices

Stoicism Today (Exeter University)
Stoicism Today started with a workshop at the University of Exeter, U.K., in early October 2012 (see the video above) which explored the applications of Stoic philosophy for the modern day. We then formed as a team of seven academics and psychotherapists working together to explore what the ancient philosophy as a way of life, Stoicism, still has to offer today.
How to Be a Stoic
An evolving guide to practical Stoicism for the 21st Century by Massimo Pigliucci.
Massimo Pigliucci is Professor of Philosophy at CUNY-City College, formerly co-host of the Rationally Speaking Podcast, and formerly the editor in chief for the online magazine Scientia Salon.He is an outspoken critic of pseudoscience and creationism, and an advocate forsecularism and science education.
Stoic philosophy, the great education in wisdom, teaches you how to change your life. Excellence really is within your reach. Now, you can learn what Stoics have always known: serenity, compassion, and joy.
Academic philosophy emphasizes abstract intellectual problems and arcane conundrums that no one ever solves and no one ever wins. Stoic philosophy doesn’t do that. It never did. Instead, it gives you the keys to living life well, in good times and bad.
The Painted Porch is a leading Stoic podcast, created by Mark Johnston, Greg Milner, and Matt Van Natta.
