Background: Stoicism was founded by Zeno of Citium around 301 BC in Athens, and later in Roman times practiced by a teacher named Epictetus, the Roman statesman Seneca and Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The philosophy focuses on virtues espoused by Socrates such as wisdom and emphasizes living the philosophy rather than just pondering it, with an emphasis on people focusing on what is within their control. Stoicism also emphasizes how relatively brief our lives are, the importance of applying reason, and emotional resilience. Stoicon-X events like this one in New England are small conferences organized around the world to complement the main Stoicon 2019 in Athen, Greece. The goal of Stoicon-X is for local groups to put on their own mini-conferences in their own areas.
