Welcome to the Inner Circle

πŸ‘‹ Welcome.

It’s a great honor for me that you’ve decided to join this community of courageous and wise individuals who are looking to take the ancient wisdom of the Stoics and apply it to their lives.

My name is Jon Brooks, and there are a few things I'd like you to know about me. But first and foremost, please know...

πŸ₯
I am not a guru or infallible expert. I am like Seneca said, just a person recovering in the hospital who is sharing what has worked for me, with my fellow patients.

I am a real person with real struggles and challenges who is using Stoicism on a daily basis and then sharing the insights that have been most useful for me, with you.

The Stoic Handbook is a place where we collectively innovate and build on the wisdom of the ancient Stoics and make it work for us in these modern challenging times.
