Listen More & Talk Less: The Stoic Approach to Lifelong Learning

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Embrace the ancient wisdom of Stoicism to become a true lifelong learner. In this insightful talk, Ken Davenport, author of The Stoic Transition and The Stoic Edge, explores how the Stoic virtues of humility, open-mindedness, and restraint of speech are vital for continual growth and learning.

Drawing from the teachings of Stoic greats like Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus, Davenport will make a compelling case for why we must quiet the ego, silence inner arrogance, and cultivate the art of deep listening. Only by shedding harmful pride and consciously practicing intellectual humility can we transcend our biases and truly absorb new knowledge and perspectives. In this context, Stoicism––especially deep listening––seems much in line with our attempts to gain more insight and calm through our experiences on the trails of Torrey Pines.

Whether you’re a leader, student, or lifelong learner, this insightful presentation will provide you with practical Stoic strategies to talk less, listen more attentively, and remain open and humble in the pursuit of wisdom. Embrace a growth mindset grounded in ancient philosophy by joining Torrey Pines Conservancy members and friends for this transformative event.
