Stoicism and its Modern Uses: results out soon

One of the professional highlights of 2012 for me was being part of Stoic Week. An important element was the questionnaires, which included both qualitative and quantitative measures of the effects on participants of taking part in Stoic Week. The results are now in, and will be revealed on the Exeter University Stoic Week website soon.
Here is a  post setting the scene for what we might learn from the week.
The 3 Stoic Exercises that were deemed most useful were:
1. The Retrospective Evening Meditation
2. The View from Above
3. Mindfulness of the Ruling Faculty (prosoche)



We hope to follow this up in 2013 with a Stoic fortnight. Hope you can be part of it.
