Agapi Stassinopoulos

Inspirational Teacher and Author

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.

In her book, Unbinding the Heart, Agapi shares her experiences and wisdom, as well as the values her extraordinary mother instilled in her and her sister. In her most recent book, Wake Up to the Joy of You: 52 Meditations for a Calmer, Happier Life (December 2016), she provides a theme and a meditation guide for every week of the year to help you get unstuck by walking you through a year of self-discovery to create a life filled with grace, meaning and joy.

Agapi has been invited to speak at various international events and global conferences, and has also spoken about health and well-being for The Spirit of Women organization, which represents hundreds of hospitals around the country.

An inspiring teacher, Agapi conducts seminars worldwide for both men and women, empowering them to recognize their individual gifts and create the lives they want. She is a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post.
