I talk about Stoicism, Islam, and community activism with American Muslim Tim Maloney.
We also explore tolerance; learning from others; anger; acceptance; handling adversity; overcoming fears; dealing with difficult people; and resilience.
Tim Maloney is an American Muslim activist and community organizer from Northeastern Pennsylvania. He received his B.A. Degree in Communication Arts and Humanities from Keystone College. Tim currently serves on the Steering Committee for the Peace and Justice Center and Executive Committee of the Wilkes-Barre NAACP Youth Council. In 2016, Tim won Best Life Blog at the NEPA BlogCon’s Blog of the Year awards. In 2017, he was the recipient of the Susan Merrill Constance Kozel Award. This is presented by The Interfaith Resource Center for Peace and Justice to an individual whose contributions to society reflect the principles of justice and peace.
The Stoic Philosophy Podcast explores the tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers including Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca.
For the Stoics, a main focus is pursuing virtue to attain a well-examined life through practical applications of Philosophy – acting with good character, using reason to form accurate careful judgments about the world, and achieving contentment. Stoic writers focus on many perennial human concerns and urge people to take action applying what they learn to everyday life. Self-improvement is central to Stoic thought – strengthening and improving one’s mindset.
