The Stoa Buddhist Philosophy Group is now meeting online. We offer a non-academic and politics-free book discussion format where those interested in both Stoicism and Buddhism can come together and learn from the text being read and from each other through the guidance of a Stoic practitioner who is also an experienced Buddhist teacher. Our approach is to learn about the art of living and to strive toward the unfolding of our human potential for inner happiness, flourishing, and enlightenment.

Our online Stoa Buddhist Philosophy Group meets Online via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. We hope you can join us. To join the Stoa Buddhist Meeting via Zoom, click below or visit our GOOGLE CALENDAR page link to our website.

Stoa Buddhist Philosophy Group Online Rules: Practice kind speech, be courteous, allow others to speak, and abstain from talking about current politics and ideologies. Remember, we are a Politics Free Zone. In addition, your Zoom profile picture, clothing and background view must not present political slogans or symbols of any kind, or any other offensive imagery or language, or harsh, sexual or violent imagery.  Infringement of any of the above rules, may result in a warning and/or immediate dismissal from the meeting. 

Returning to the book store?: The small and cozy That Book Store in Wethersfield, Connecticut, had fallen victim to Connecticut Governor Lamont’s arbitrary policies to curb the coronavirus public health issue, and unfortunately, has gone out of business. In the post-Covid-19 world, we will be looking for a new local meeting place in the Wethersfield area but we are committed to include our newly active participants residing outside of the local area via Zoom.

We recommend that you give yourself time to sign-in before the 6 p.m. meeting.
