George’s interest in Stoicism was sparked 21 years ago by a reference to Stoicism in a paper he was reading about cognitive therapy. He then began to research Stoicism and has completed the SES and the Marcus Aurelius program. Over the years, he has used Stoicism to help deal with the existential stumbling blocks that fate lays before us. He has never been the perfect sage and he sometimes strayed from the Stoic path. However, each time he returned, he realised that Stoicism answers all his questions and brings peace to his mind. George was born and lives in Ireland, he is married and works in a university.
