Agapi Stassinopoulos 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 degree 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. She has been featured on Oprah.com, HuffPost Live, CBS’s The Talk, and The Martha Stewart Show, among others. She has spoken at conferences for the American Heart Association, The Spirit of Women, the Whole Foods Leadership Academy, Time Inc., the Girl Scouts of America, TEDx, Wisdom 2.0 Conference, Nike, Starbucks, Kaiser Permanente, and many more.
She is developing a curriculum on Heartfelt Leadership for the Wharton Business School to provide the tools to bring conscious leadership into today’s workplace, based on the principles of generosity and empathy, assisting others to live a more fulfilling life. She is currently collaborating with her sister, Arianna, on conducting workshops on the principles of Thrive, The Third Metric, bringing them to the corporate world. She lives between New York and Los Angeles. For more, visit unbindingtheheart.com.
