Events for the Week: Vibetraits, Ritual Studio, and The Practice Problem
Hey beautiful people,
Here are the upcoming events for the week …
Vibetraits w/ Sílvia Bastos. August 8th @ 12:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
When I had COVID last March, I jumped on a call with Sílvia Bastos (the artist of The Stoa’s current logo) to get my “vibetrait” done. This is a cool thing Sílvia does - drawing your vibe instead of your portrait. Since I was in a shitty state with COVID, I requested an aspirational vibetrait or vibetrait-as-sigil. She agreed and when I got on the call all I could muster was mumbling how much I wanted a life of thumos. A week later she presented the epic image you see above. Sílvia will be visiting The Stoa tomorrow to discuss her process, and perhaps we will be creating some vibetraits live together. You can request to get your vibetrait done by Sílvia here.
Ritual Studio w/ Rebecca Fox. August 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th @ 12:00 PM ET. Patreon event.
We had a great time at The Stoa on Tuesday concluding Rebecca Fox’s ascent ritual. Now that the Stoa field has been renewed, we are ready to collectively step-up our ritual game. The Ritual Studio will include a live ritual practice as well as the opportunity to have a bespoke ritual designed for you by Rebecca. You can check out Rebecca’s rituals here.
Beyond Self-Discipline: The Practice Problem. August 14th, 21st, and 28th @ 12:00 PM ET. RSVP here. 45-90 mins.
We had our first weekly BSD call to address “The Practice Problem.” We gave an overview of the history and theory of BSD, talked about three ways you can make your “practice soup” tasty, and introduced the concept of the “generator practice.” Each person will be choosing one practice to be held accountable for each week. Everyone is welcome to participate even if they cannot make the in-person sessions. Just put down one simple practice you will be doing on a daily basis throughout the week here …
If you did the practice, mark the checkbox. We will be doing this for four weeks and every week you can choose a new practice.
