Jon Brooks is the co-owner of HighExistence, and a thought leader on the modernization and practical implementation of Stoic philosophy. His aim is to take ancient, esoteric wisdom and translate it for modern people who seek self-fulfilment.

Reading The Stoic Handbook weekly is the ultimate way to digest ancient Stoic wisdom, with upgraded visual flowcharts and modern interpretations. Each week you’ll receive an original Stoicism text represented in an entirely new way to help you put the lesson to use immediately.

This work is accessible and brilliant. I am so grateful for what you have created.
