In many parts of the world today people are looking for alternative frameworks with which to align their lives. We’ve lived in this bubble for so long that tells us that if we can have more and buy more and spend more and have more followers then, and only then, we can have the joy and true happiness that we so desperately search for.

But what if there was a belief system, or a framework for your life, that could grant you true happiness and inner peace at any stage of your life, no matter if you’re rich or poor, lonely or surrounded by friends, in a great career or struggling to get by? Well, I present to you the ancient Greek philosophy that is Stoicism.

Join me as I present weekly episodes showcasing some of the best and most practical advice from the great stoic philosophers.
