This presentation will focus on discussing psychological applications of the Stoic recipes for developing inner resilience, internal peace and establishing harmonious lives. It will start with a brief history of the Stoic philosophy and then focus on the prescriptions for the art of living provided by Epictetus, with some additions from Seneca and Marcus Aurelius. The discussion will cover the Stoic ontology of the universe, divine, and human mind, followed by the primary ethical and behavioral principles that rational and virtuous persons should follow in order to find balance and harmony in their lives.
