"does virtue foster wellBEING?"

In this inquiry into the benefits of living a virtue-driven life, we will explore the connection between Stoic virtue and wellbeing.

We aim for attendees to understand the value of virtue in fostering stable mental and emotional foundations.

These principles will form the basis for the Philadelphia Stoa community. The conference explores the practical application of these philosophies in today’s world and seeks to build a virtue-centered community.

We’re leading the rebirth of the ancient philosophy of Stoicism to meet the challenges of modernity. We aim to resurrect the definition of what it meant to be a philosopher in antiquity—a person who strives to live a philosophical life. 

Through the practice of applying virtue ethics, reason, and critical thinking to our collective human experience, we endeavor to unlock the personal flourishing that is possible within all of us.
