In today’s stressed-out world, we often let our own wellbeing become our last priority. Join Agapi Stassinopoulos in a special workshop, Unbind the Heart and Learning to Thrive, to learn tools that will leave you energized and expanded instead of depleted and disconnected. Agapi shares wisdom from her own book and from her sister Arianna Huffington’s book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder. Find your authentic self that has for too long been buried beneath other people’s needs.

The workshops were the talk of the summit! She spoke to the hearts and minds of the attendees and everyone left, enthused and inspired, with the knowledge of how to implement tools in their everyday life to enhance their wellbeing. She was one of the most beloved and successful speakers we have had on stage in our nine-year history.”

Amazon Unbinding the Heart Review

While we are all born with open hearts, we quickly learn to imprison our hearts through judgment, self-castigation, and doubt, allowing fear, entitlement, or self-righteousness to take hold. To protect our vulnerable core, we isolate ourselves, becoming alone, disconnected, and unheard. After her own struggle with self-constriction, Agapi learned to balance her career dreams with the open heart and spiritual life she longed for. Allow her to inspire you with the confidence to let go of the paralyzing beliefs that bind us and come to a deeper understanding of life and love.

Unbinding The Heart by Agapi Stassinopoulos & Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-being, Wisdom, and Wonder by her sister, Arianna Huffington


“Most of our transformations come when we didn’t get what we thought we wanted only to get something better than we could have imagined.”

“To live a peaceful, productive life, we have to be strong, ruthless protectors of our life’s energy. We cannot engage in endless conversations that take us round and round, consuming time, focus, and energy. We’re designed for bigger, more important conversations.”

“There’s a wonderful feeling of release–almost like exhaling–when we start to follow our own compass instead of one that we’ve inherited.”

“If what you are thinking and feeling is dragging you down, change the channel.”

“Forgive yourself for what you did or didn’t do. For the things that happened and things that didn’t happen. Forgive yourself for all the judgement you make about others when they don’t act the way you want them to; forgive all the judgements you’ve made on your own life. Do this over and over again and your loving spirit will unbind.”

“The truest validation we can ever have is being seen for the value of who we are, just as we are.”
