For over 25 years Sharon Lebell’s internationally bestselling book, The Art of Living: The Classic Manual on Virtue, Happiness, and Effectiveness, has inspired philosophy lovers and the modern Stoicism movement. A contemporary interpretation of the ancient sage Epictetus’ teachings, it is a perennial classic that is a cherished spiritual companion and daily guide for readers from every walk of life.
Sharon is a strong proponent of expressing philosophy in accessible language so anyone can apply it to better their own lives and be invited to delve further into philosophical inquiry. The imperative to use our lives to improve the lives of others and the importance of beauty and engagement with art, music, and design are central to her message of what makes the best possible life.
Since Sharon Lebell was a child, she was obsessed with the questions “how do we each live the best possible life and what does that mean?” She has thus spent her adult life writing and speaking about philosophy, spirituality, meditation, Buddhism, Judaism, ethics, feminism, and related topics. She is also the author of Naming Ourselves, Naming Our Children and co-author with Brother David Steindl-Rast of The Music of Silence.
