We remember stories. There's something about them that stay and resonate with us throughout our lives and over generations.
Narratives enable us to understand complex systems with many moving parts. They enable us to navigate complex situations, connect with one another and—through internalizing the morals they impart—improve ourselves. Like ancient Stoic maxims, stories help us memorize and habituate profound insights.
STOICA is designed to tap into the power of narratives and storytelling. It employs this narrative impact to help readers improve themselves and find empowerment.
Buried in the treasure trove of the world's folklore is the timeless wisdom of our forefathers. STOICA seeks these buried treasures and presents them to the philosophically-inclined.
We strive to make these stories accessible to younger members of our society—instilling Stoic values, endurance, humility and kindness in the leaders of the future.
We encourage moms and dads to explore STOICA together with kids whilst keeping in mind that—with these things—it's often “easier said than done.” So please be a gentle guide to yourselves and for the little guys as well in this lifelong project of self-betterment!
