I had the good fortune yesterday of interviewing Agapi Stassinopoulos, author, speaker, and Huffington Post regular for her new book Unbinding the Heart, A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and Unconditional Love. Unbinding the Heart invites readers on an inspiring journey of inner exploration to reconnect with their true selves.
Listen to my interview with Agapi:

Some simple take aways from our interview:
- Be Generous (she shares how her mom-was always generous and at her dinner parties would sometimes sit the plumber next to the prime minister)
- Be Your Authentic Self
- Be Vulnerable-so people can see the real you
- Don’t put conditions on your happiness
- Have an open heart

Agapi Stassinopoulos was born and raised in Athens, Greece. At age 18, she entered the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and afterward became a member of the Young Vic. She moved to the United States to do film and television, and later attended the University of Santa Monica, where she completed her Master’s in Psychology.
While her sister, Arianna Huffington, was doing research for her book about Greek mythology, Agapi’s love for the gods and goddesses was ignited and led to two books of her own—Conversations with the Goddesses and Gods and Goddesses in Love—as well as a one-woman show and a PBS special. She also coproduced and cohosted a documentary called “Quest for the Gods,” shot on location in Greece. Click her to learn more about Agapi.
