Hi, I am Aga, and I still remember the chills I felt all over my body and a tingling in my spine the first time I picked up Meditations… Yep, it was one of those moments, when the words resonate within you and you just repeat them over and over silently, whilst a part of you just wants you to shout them out loud, so that everyone else hears it!
Did this happen to anyone else?!
I also remember how I brought a copy of the book, in my native language. I took it on the plane, and then was seen with it literally everywhere… on the bus, at my work, in the park.
I even printed, framed and hanged quotes from the book around my house and in my study, I make sure I see it!
Just to mention, I discovered Stoicism whilst listening to Jordan Peterson debating Sam Harris, about four years ago.
Day to day, I manage a legal compliance agency, based just outside of London in the UK, a fast paced environment where a Stoic approach surely comes in handy!
I am also the founder of Brains Rewired, where I assist you to calm your mind via NLP and Hypnotherapy. I remain fascinated by the brain’s ability to rewire, determined to help people get more control over their own minds, and get the ability to change their thinking patterns.
The quality of your life truly depends on the quality of your thoughts, and personal responsibility is everything.
I have been attending the Stoicon London events, for a few years now and make sure I promote and support it as well as I can, I believe it offers an incredible set of tools to improve people’s lives. Really looking forward to the event and excited about the speakers, the line up is truly exquisite.
To be in the company of likeminded and Stoic women is a true privilege. I am a Proud Stoic and this is my #PathsToFlourishing story. I hope that soon enough we will get together in real life, and we will talk and enjoy face to face discussions.
Till then, reach out, talk to me and I will see you Saturday!
