Time for some important news…
The new e-learning course on Stoic practice will be called Stoic Mindfulness and Resilience Training. It starts on Monday 19th May and continues for four weeks. We’ll begin enrolling people on the course around 12th May to give you time to get prepared and complete the initial questionnaires, etc.
The course is free of charge, of course, and it’s part of the same programme of research and events developed by the team responsible for Stoic Week.
Each week will cover a different area of Stoic practice.
- Orientation and Preparation
- Stoic Virtues
- Stoic Mindfulness
- Stoic Resilience
You’ll be asked to complete a series of pre- and post-study questionnaires: three measures of psychological wellbeing used in research and the Stoic Attitudes and Behaviours Scale (SABS) we developed. You’ll be asked to follow some simple Stoic practices each week including meditation exercises, self-monitoring, listening to audio recordings, and also participating in structured discussions with other course participants online.
We’re treating it as a pilot trial and collecting data from participants to measure the effects. 320 people have already registered in advance as users on our new website and you should join them by creating an account if you want to take part in the e-learning course and research study.
If you have any questions about the course or our research, or you’re having any technical problems registering on the site, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email.
