The Aurelius Foundation Mission

"Stoic philosophy has been with us for over 2000 years and has stood the test of time. It has been a mainstay for some of history’s greatest leaders including the great Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

At the Aurelius Foundation, we recognise the need to support young people to live a Life of clarity and purpose, and the additional support required in the face of increasing challenges in the modern world.

Stoicism provides us all with a clear framework to interpret our personal nature and direction in Life coupled with the development of strong character through the key virtues to contribute to the common good and ultimately build a better future for us all.

At the Foundation, we aim to offer Stoic philosophy & guidance through various mediums to support those who wish to learn from and digest these ancient teachings. I encourage all those who join us to take time to learn and apply these teachings as Stoicism is above all a practical philosophy. It is a philosophy to live by day-to-day, week-to-week as we progress together to live to the highest principles and character virtues.

Stoicism helps reorganise one’s past, helps set future priorities/purpose for one’s future, and when these are completed, allows for beautiful living in the present.

We invite you to join the Aurelius Foundation to take an enriching journey of education, awareness and enlightenment to see the Stoics in action.

I also take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to the key partners who work with the Aurelius Foundation to increase awareness of Stoicism and to our Advisory team and fellow Founders for their excellent support, positivity and guidance."
