How to Think Like a Roman Emperor, my online course about the life and philosophy of Marcus Aurelius, is now enrolling and begins Sunday 5th August 2018. Click the button below to learn more or enroll right now…
This is a huge course containing lots of different resources: videos, live webinars, quizzes, discussions, articles, infographics, and more. It runs over four weeks, although you also have the option of completing it self-paced if you want. (Recordings of all the webinars can be viewed in your own time.)
This course is designed to be suitable both for individuals who are new to the subject and those who are well-read in Stoicism. It approaches the subject of Stoic philosophy, and its practical applications in daily life, from a new angle, by using many stories from the life of Marcus Aurelius to illustrate Stoic concepts and techniques. It deals with emotional issues including coping with anger, pain and illness, fear, and loss.
Thanks Donald for your personal perspectives, the anecdotes and breadth of applied experience with Stoicism; the practical and historical perspectives, using Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations , were very insightful and valuable also for long-term retention. Lots of thought-provoking material here to read and re-read. Many thanks. The course concept and contents are highly recommended. (I came close to turning this course down – but am greatly relieved now that I registered at the last minute!) – Sachigo

This is a subject close to my heart as I’ve recently finished writing a new book about Marcus Aurelius. The course is an opportunity to explore his life and philosophy in more detail, though, and using the interactive possibilities of modern e-learning such as webinars, quizzes, and discussions. The discussions in this course are very active – previous students have posted over 800 comments about the course materials in total. I’m sure you’ll find this a great way to gain even more benefit from Stoicism and the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius in particular.
If you have any questions about the course, please feel free to get in touch. I read every email and promise to get back to you with a response.
Look forward to seeing you there,
