Stoicism and Well-Being

Stoic Week is an annual online event in which people

from all over the world attempt to live like a Stoic for seven days. This is

your opportunity to take part in a special experiment.

You will learn about how the ancient philosophy of Stoicism can be adapted to help us lead better lives. The course combines general theory with more specific, step-by-step guidance on certain Stoic exercises. These materials have been prepared by experts in the field and give you an unusual and completely free-of-charge opportunity for personal development.

Stoic Week has proven extremely popular – over 25,000 have participated since we

started in 2012. Each year we receive a huge amount of online feedback from


Here are some of the things previous participants have said:-

  • “I am calmer, I accept many disagreeable things with good spirits. No so easily hurt”.
  • “Having a clear list of daily exercises has been very useful, and this week has started to make these a daily habit”
  • “Putting personal difficulties with Health and treatment into perspective, managing pain and other people's sadness”
  • “It has made me think, question and discuss, until now, half-formed ideas”
  • “The guidance of Stoicism makes me happy”
  • “Being involved daily gave me the opportunity to realise how positive and worthy my life has been and how prepared I am for whatever life presents in the future”

Stoic Week consists of seven chapters, one for each day of the week.

It gives you an opportunity to join thousands of other participants around the world as they learn to apply Stoic concepts and techniques in their daily lives.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Stoic Week has been widely covered in the media in previous years and you can find links to various articles in newspapers and magazines on the Modern Stoicism website.
