Immerse yourself in an Ancient Roman fortress of Saalburg on the Limes with Dr. Rob Colter (University of Wyoming, USA, and Founder and Director of Wyoming Stoic Camp) and Dr. Alexander Zock (Stoic Podcaster and Executive Coach) for a workshop on the topic of “Ancient Stoicism and Personal Growth.” In the workshop, we will look at ideas and text from Greek and Roman Stoic philosophers, and trace connections to contemporary ideas in self-growth and development, as well as explore Roman Culture. Retreat program begins in the evening of August 7, concludes August 11.

After the retreat, join Dr. Colter on a journey exploring Roman history and culture in Germany through Frankfurt and Mainz, to Cologne, along the Middle Rhine, and to Trier. Visit key landmarks and museums, cruise the river, and appreciate the German landscape in both historical and contemporary contexts. The tour begins when the retreat concludes midday August 11, concludes early morning August 16.
