Agapi Stassinopoulos knows that thriving at work isn't enough - we must lead full, well-balanced lives.

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), Agapi 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.

In this busy world of accelerated technology, it becomes a challenge to prioritize taking care of ourselves and our inner resources. So often our busy lives can leave us feeling depleted and exhausted. In this energizing talk, Agapi Stassinopoulos encourages us to take the best care of ourselves, and exposes the price we pay when we don’t.

How to Create a More Mindful Life with Renewed Enthusiasm
We live in a world that forces us to stay online around the clock, which has led to an epidemic of sleep deprivation, burnout, and stress. In doing so, we are losing our ability to manage and nurture those deeper connections that matter most, including those at home with our families, in social settings with friends, and in the workplace with colleagues.
Drawing on the latest groundbreaking neuroscience and examples from leaders across areas of specialization, Agapi Stassinopoulos illustrates the relationship between well-being and performance by showing how microscopic daily habits can reverse this epidemic. She refers to the wisdom of her Greek ancestors who asked the question, What is a good life, and what is it like to live a life that we value? In these talks, audiences will learn strategies on how to change erroneous beliefs and how to start prioritizing their personal well-being so that they can tap into a more successful and fulfilling life.

Dynamic. Engaging. Inspirational! These words do little when it comes to describing Agapi's presence and influence as a public speaker. True to her Greek name and roots, Agapi loves her audience in ways that can only be experienced. She also connects with her audience like only a skilled actor knows how to do. We've seen her at "work," which is actually a misnomer since she practices her craft so effortlessly, and more importantly, have witnessed first-hand how people respond so intimately to her message. What makes Agapi Stassinopoulos an extraordinary performer, is how she combines her skills in the dramatic arts with a flair for the spoken word that conveys her powerful message. With this unique mixture of talents, she truly captivates and enlightens her audience who undoubtedly cannot help but fall under her spell!The OPA! Center for Meaning
