Stoic Week 2013 is upon us! Once again, the University of Exeter is challenging the world to live like a Stoic. If you're in London on November 30th, you can attend the Stoicism for Everyday Life event. The rest of us can participate from wherever we are by following this year's handbook (download it on the 18th) and checking up on things online. For instance, there is now a Stoicism Today YouTube channel. I believe more details will come out Monday the 4th.
If you would like a feel for how last year's event went, take a look at the Living Like a Roman Emperor handbook in the Resources page of this blog. I still refer to that handbook today. I'm excited to get my hands on the latest version. Which reminds me...
I set up the Resources section so that I wouldn't need to explain Stoicism. I mean, obviously I talk about it a lot, but when I set up Immoderate Stoic I felt that other people had explained the basics so well that I would rather link to them. That was probably a mistake. If you're coming here to read about Stoicism, I should at least provide a basic overview without making you do extra work. That said, I'll be creating a What is Stoicism page that can be linked to in the sidebar. If those of you who are fellow practitioners would check it out and help me refine it (I'm shooting to have it up by next weekend), that would be much appreciated.
Have a joyful Stoic Saturday!
