THE AURELIUS FOUNDATION EXISTS TO INCREASE THE AWARENESS OF THE PRINCIPLES OF STOIC PHILOSOPHY
As a collective Stoic community we are always striving to understand and make an effective contribution to the greater good through our life contributions. Professor Christopher Gill explains for our recent international leadership conference, why for him, this includes a deep appreciation for nature, attention to how we are treating our environment and preserving our world.
AIMS OF THE FOUNDATION
We are dedicated to youth development through education of the higher principles and values in stoic philosophy, and critically the development of the four central cardinal virtues of Wisdom, Justice, Temperance and Courage in the pursuit of happiness.
Our vision is to support young people to consider their personal journey through Life and help them deliver positive and constructive change for the greater good through their life contributions.

IN THE WORDS OF MARCUS AURELIUS
Approach each action as if it is your last; dismissing the wayward thought, the emotional recoil from the commands of reason, the desire to make an impression, the admiration of self and discontent with your lot . . . if you can follow these principles, the Gods will ask nothing more.
