STOIC WELLBEING COURSE
Eve Riches and Tim LeBon are working in partnership with the Aurelius Foundation to develop our online Stoic Wellness course.
Our Stoic Wellness course will amalgamate Eve & Tim’s experience of practical and theoretical Stoic wisdom into daily life, and ultimately help attendees identify their path to practicing Stoic philosophy.
The course will cover core concepts such as Stoic transcendence and what makes a good life and encourage a mix of academic discussions as well as practical conversations focused on the uses of Stoicism towards managing emotions or taking care of ourselves and others.
OUR COURSE WILL OFFER:
- Live lessons and activities
- Online discussions with your peer group
- Useful resources & downloadable information packs to help your studies
- Quizzes & assignments
- Audio meditations
- Certificate on completion
The course will be delivered online and have a duration of 20 weeks. We plan to launch our course in 2022.
Given the popularity of the course we will be operating a waitlist. If you would like to join the waitlist please click below or email email@example.com with subject “Stoic Wellness Waitlist” with a short paragraph summarising your motivation for seeking to join the course and we will be in touch with next steps.
STOIC SURVIVIAL & RESILIENCE LEAD
John Harlow is a qualified Mountain Leader, Rock Climbing, and Survival Instructor with over six years of experience in outdoor education. Through this time, he has taken a particular interest in hostile environments, which has taken him to five continents in order to specialise in caving, bushwalking, and desert survival. While much of John’s work is physical, he spends a huge amount of time teaching, which has led him to gain a First Class degree in Philosophy, Qualified Teacher Status, and Accredited Practitioner status at the Institute of Outdoor Learning.
One of the central challenges in training people to survive hostile situations and environments is guiding them to the right mindset. John can teach you how to achieve protection, water, food, and rescue using improvised resources, but all that knowledge is useless if you panic in a live scenario. By using Stoicism to train ourselves to be more resilient, to be calm under pressure, and to act virtuously in adversity, John can help to prepare individuals to handle the mental challenges in a life or death situation. John firmly believes that Stoicism offers a powerful means not only to survive in dire circumstances, but also to thrive in our everyday lives.
