Applied Meditations by Marcus Aurelius Philosophy of a Stoic
Goal: Practical Exercises to implement stoic lessons from the book Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
With this course I intend to share with you some techniques & frameworks that will facilitate you to apply the philosophy of Marcus Aurelius in your life. For example, Marcus says that a man should live a life of Integrity. He does not share any method to help readers develop integrity because this book was not written with an intention to publish it or help others. This book is simply his journal where he processed his thoughts for himself. This book is his personal diary and because of that you will get a lot of great advice but you wont know how to implement those advice in your life. Then I show you how to develop integrity using scientific methods shared by industry leaders in the field of personal development and psychology.
So, I think of this course as an extension to the book which gives you exercises to implement those advises in your life effortlessly.
I want to repeat again, this course does not teach philosophy. It simply facilitates you with a lot of personal development concepts and strategies which will help you understand this book in much more depth and be able to implement the advises in your actions.
In my experience, I have observed many people finding it difficult to act on any kind of philosophy. They get stuck in consuming information passively and fail to implement them to see real results in life. People also prefer some kind of exercise, structure and frameworks that simplify this philosophies. So this course is an action plan to implement what Marcus Aurelius is reminding himself of.

This was a very good course. I think the way that the instructor has applied principles from the meditations of Marcus Aurelius and blended it with various meditation techniques that aid in the practical applications of those principles was extremely good. The only reason I'm giving this four stars is simply because I was expecting a course that delved into greater detail on Stoic psychology specifically and how we can apply what Marcus is saying through that vehicle. The blended approach of Buddhism, Stoic philosophy, and various meditation techniques is something that I already do. But I would highly recommend this course either way.
