New England Stoic Camp spring 2019

A trip to a rustic mansion in Maine has been arranged for the Memorial Day weekend, . Members and their guests are welcome for a nominal fee which will cover group dinners and facility maintenance.

We're staying in a large house in Andover, Maine, with power and wood heat. Dinner (included) will be prepared for us to enjoy together, and will include a vegetarian option. Bring your own breakfasts and lunches to cook in the cabin kitchen.

The goal of this weekend is to enjoy a social atmosphere in nature and get to know each other better as we contemplate topics in more depth than time allows in our regular meetings. Our focus will be on applying the works of Epictetus, especially his Discourses.

Hosted by the New England Stoics, Stoic Camp New England includes:
