​An ancient belief system made new, Stoicism teaches us how to accept the things we cannot change and how to live a good life. It helps us improve our outlook, increase our wellbeing, and thrive in the face of adversity. But how does one live like a Stoic? In this Olio, I will guide people through a series of spiritual exercises, each based on a common obstacle. Learn how to distinguish between things that you do and do not control, focus on the former, and achieve more peace of mind.

Based on the soon to be released A Handbook for New Stoics: How to Thrive in a World Out of Your Control—52 Week-by-Week Lessons.

The Assemblage is a custom-designed, flexible, and dedicated coworking space to support work, creativity and well-being. Their unique workspaces foster growth and innovation for businesses that align impact with capital. Their aim is to help ignite the collective imagination of what might be and to generate knowledge that expands the realm of the possible.

Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
