A Dose Of Greek Wisdom, Generosity and Unconditional Love by Agapi Stassinopoulos
At doB, we love to talk about inspiring women. Unbinding The Heart is a truly empowering story with important lessons about life and love. 32 personal stories from Agapi’s life that speak to overcommitted women everywhere. Having spent time with the author, she is a true connector of people with a positive spirit and light that makes you instantly feel like a part of her Greek family.
Each heartfelt story is full of insight and humor, Agapi takes us from her mother’s bountiful kitchen, where the seeds of fearless living were planted, to the London classical stage, to an epiphany on a New York City bus—and inspires readers with the confidence to let go of the beliefs that bind them and come to a deeper understanding of life and love.
Born in Greece, a country that celebrates life, Agapi learned the essential truths of happiness through the examples of wisdom, caring, playfulness, and generosity she saw all around her, starting with her own mother. She came to realize that everyone is born with an open heart, but that we quickly learn to put conditions on our happiness—comparing ourselves to others, casting judgment, doubting ourselves, allowing fear or entitlement or self-righteousness to take hold—and slowly our hearts begin to close. We isolate ourselves, feeling alone, disconnected, and unheard; and in doing so we immobilize our spirit, stifle our authentic expression, and cut off our joy.
So check out Unbinding The Heart… Couldn’t we all use a little divine inspiration!
