New England Stoics 2019-08-14 meeting

Our last meeting was at Cobblestones in Lowell.

True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so, wants nothing.


If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you're needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.

— Lucius Annæus Seneca

Note: Location changed for this meeting.

While it seems simple, people have many different approaches to happiness. The plan was to discuss not only what Seneca thought about happiness, but the views of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Diogenes, Epicurus and others!


Hosted by the New England Stoics.
