The Synthesis – Articles and Podcasts

Both Stoicism and Buddhism offer a sophisticated world-view, theory of mind, practices, and commonsense guidance to live a joyful and flourishing life based on love and wisdom.  The goal of this Stoa Buddhist Philosophy Group is to introduce the possibility of integrating the two philosophical traditions into one singular teaching and practice so that participants can receive the benefits from both traditions.  Although our group does require some reading as part of the learning process, this is not an academic group; the focus will be on applying the synthesized teachings into daily practice.
