Hey guys, how is everyone enjoying their Stoic week? I hope that some of you have taken this opportunity to look into some of the teachings and texts and gained the benefits of this highly practical ancient philosophy!
As part of Stoic Week 2013 I gave a one hour talk on the practical application of Stoic philosophy at the Rathmines Public Library in Dublin. The talk is titled “What is Truly Within Your Power” and it is reproduced in its entirety below. Although I’ve done many gigs and some stage acting I’d never done this kind of speaking engagement. I’ll be honest, it was pretty nerve wracking but I’m glad I did it and hearing the positive feedback from those who attended has given me a lot of encouragment :)
So I hope you enjoy the talk. Please excuse the audio, at times it might be a little tricky to make out exactly what I’m saying, but for the most part it should be perfectly audible. I hope you enjoy the talk and find some of it to be interesting!

Thanks for watching! All the best :)
