How to practice Stoicism

Despite the title of the video below, this isn’t about my first book on Stoicism, How to be a Stoic, but rather the more recent one, A Handbook for New Stoics, co-written with my friend Greg Lopez.

The talk was presented at the HowTheLightGetsIn festival, organized in Hay (Wales) by the Institute of Arts and Ideas, May 2019. The video is about 40 minutes long. Enjoy!
