Stoa Nova: Prosochē or Not Prosochē? On Stoic Mindfulness

Do the Stoics engage in mindfulness? Is it similar to the practice from the Buddhist tradition? Is it useful? What is “mindfulness” anyway?

Join us and find out why the answers to these questions may make a difference in how you practice Stoicism. Or live your life.

Hosted by philosopher Massimo Pigliucci, Stoa Nova is inspired (with a bit of immodesty) to the ancient Greco-Roman schools of philosophy. Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Epictetus and many others simply gave lectures about their favorite topics and engaged in Socratic discussions with people interested in what they had to say. In our case, we will examine the theory and practice of Stoicism as a modern applied philosophy that aids us in navigating a world in some ways just as confusing and uncertain as that of ancient Athens and Rome.
