The Emperor and The Slave: Two Buddhist Stoics

Friday, January 3, 2020 - Sunday, January 5, 2020

How can I free myself of anger, anxiety, and distraction?

How do I decide what’s worth pursuing?

How can frustrations be turned into opportunities? 

When we dispel the confusion of false impressions, we discover the real priorities in our life. We can take responsibility for what belongs to us, and stop worrying about the rest.

Join us for a weekend of illusion-busting contemplation and community-building dialogue with the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and the Roman slave Epictetus. They were Stoic philosophers who developed remarkably effective ways of living. Spiritual without superstition, accessible to everyone, and immediately practical.

You’ll learn a set of skills that can lead to genuine happiness and the peace and freedom to fulfill the deepest purpose of human life: benefitting oneself and others.

George Draffan and Damien Abel will lead this non-residential workshop of guided contemplations and dialogue in the classic Stoic tradition.

Friday January 3rd from 7-9pm
Saturday January 4th from 10am-4pm
Sunday January 5th from 10am-4pm

at Coyote Central, 2300 East Cherry Street, Seattle

It stares you in the face. No role is so well suited to philosophy as the one you happen to be in right now.”
