Agapi Stassinopoulos has had a profound effect on our co-founder Sarah Nally - "Agapi opened my heart and helped me see my inner beauty, which for someone who used to suffer from low self esteem and anxiety is a pretty major claim." We think that she will have a similar effect on you, which is why she is the first speaker to kick things off at Nurture Her 2018.
Agapi was born and raised in Athens, Greece. At age 18, she entered the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art 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 co-produced and co-hosted a documentary called “Quest for the Gods,” shot on location in Greece. 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 organisation, which represents hundreds of hospitals around the USA.
An inspiring speaker, Agapi conducts seminars world-wide for both men and women, empowering them to recognise their individual gifts and create the lives they want.
She is a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post.
Agapi is currently conducting workshops for Thrive Global, a company founded by her sister, Arianna, to help change the way we work and live. Agapi has spoken and conducted meditations at many organisations and companies including ABC Carpet & Home, Women’s Health Magazine, Museum of Modern Art, IBM Watson, SAP, Pandora Radio, CVS Corporate, Weight Watchers, PepsiCo, Google, Nike, Starbucks, Fortune Health Conference, and The Heart Association, amongst many.
Agapi will spread her wings for you to nestle yourself under. Her love and generosity will embrace you like a hug from an angel. She will make you laugh and cry but most impressively is her ability to make you want to love yourself more. The more we love ourselves the more we can love others and in this world that is something we desperately need.
