10 contemplations to help you cultivate
a good life, here and now.


Find clarity, purpose, and resilience through life's challenges.

The common usage of the adjective “stoic” – the unemotional endurance of hardship – belies the true nature of Stoicism, a brilliant philosophy of personal ethics founded in the 3rd century BC.

Stoicism is rife with wise maxims often derived from the oratory of the three most famous Stoics: Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius. In fact, the repetitive recitation of these aphorisms is central to the ethos. However, if there is a single quotation that epitomizes Stoicism, it may be this one from Marcus Aurelius, who served as the Emperor of Rome from 161 to 180 AD:

“Objective judgment, now at this very moment. Unselfish action, now at this very moment. Willing acceptance – now at this very moment – of all external events. That’s all you need.”

Stoic Meditations with Jeff Krasno offers 10 contemplations to live a fulfilled life and minimize suffering. These exercises are framed by the three central Stoic disciplines: perception, action, and will. By refining the discipline of perception, you find mental clarity. By engaging in action that is ethical and just, you find purpose. And by exercising will, you learn how to identify and manage the things you cannot change and find the resilience to deal with life’s challenges.

Through these disciplines you will cultivate the stoic virtues of moderation, courage, justice, and wisdom. The ultimate goal: eudaimonia, the achievement of human flourishing and the minimization of human suffering.


“It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”

~ Epictetus

What to Expect

Stoic meditations are more like active contemplations versus seated mindfulness practices where the goal is nonattachment to thoughts. Each 5-10 minute lesson offers a fresh practice that, when you apply concentrated attention to it, results in a positive emotional state.

Develop the skills to live with presence and gratitude

You can’t always change the world around you, but you can change your own thoughts and actions in the present moment.
