Stoicism For Kids
Dear Classical Wisdom Kids,
I’m excited to announce our very first event for Classical Wisdom Kids!
And what better way to kick off this new endeavor than to teach some of the most timeless lessons from antiquity... the philosophy of Stoicism.
Indeed, it’s never too soon to explore the wisdom passed on from the Stoics... especially the ideas on focusing on the present, developing patience and gratitude... as well as how to become more resilient.
All these thoughts and ideas can become habits, a way of living to help the next generation be kinder, happier and more capable of dealing with whatever comes their way.
To that end, we have invited Phil Van Treuren, a writer, artist, and author of The Stock Horse and the Stable Cat to discuss his most recent book, A Dog Who Follows Gladly.
Through the wise words of the old ranch dog, children can discover the ancient parables that teach us how to accept the things outside of our control and to see the best in every situation.
Join us on December 12th at Noon EST for a live discussion on this beautiful fable, the ideas of Stoicism and how all of us (of all ages) can practice this philosophy in our everyday lives.
Can’t join us live? Don’t worry! As long as you register in advance, you will receive the recordings so you can watch at any time!
