Publisher's Summary

In Unbinding the Heart, author, speaker, and Huffington Post regular Agapi Stassinopoulos brings you an unabridged reading of her inspiring journey of inner exploration to reconnect with her true self - featuring a new guided meditation available only in this audiobook.
Born in Greece, a country that celebrates life, Agapi learned the essential truths of happiness through the examples of wisdom, caring, playfulness, and generosity she saw all around her, starting with her own mother. She came to realize that everyone is born with an open heart, but we quickly learn to put conditions on our happiness - comparing ourselves to others, casting judgment, doubting ourselves, allowing fear or entitlement or self-righteousness to take hold - and slowly our hearts begin to close. We isolate ourselves, feeling alone, disconnected, and unheard; and in doing so we immobilize our spirits, stifle our authentic expressions, and cut off our joy. As she went on, Agapi, like so many of us, came under the soul-constricting influences of the larger world.
In her struggle to find her place and her voice, trying to balance the acting career she dreamed of with the spiritual life she longed for, she discovered a path that was uniquely hers. Unbinding the Heart shows how she found her way home to herself. To conclude, Agapi offers you a guided meditation to connect with your "portable paradise" - an always-available inner sanctuary of peace, openness, and joy. In 32 personal, heartfelt stories full of insight and humor, Agapi takes us from her mother's bountiful kitchen, where the seeds of fearless living were planted, to the London classical stage to an epiphany on a New York City bus - and inspires us with the confidence to let go of the beliefs that bind us and come to a deeper understanding of life and love.

It's like a spa vacation for your heart!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm telling all my friends and family to run out and buy a copy!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Unbinding the Heart?

There are so many memorable moments in this book. I especially love when Agapi shares about her mother's experience working for the Red Cross - truly inspirational!

Which character – as performed by Agapi Stassinopoulos – was your favorite?

Agapi as herself is the best!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Every chapter puts me into either deep contemplation of my own life, or inspires me to let down the walls I've built around my own heart.

Any additional comments?

I'm listening to Agapi read "Unbinding the Heart" on Audible. She's absolutely inspirational! I feel like I'm on a spa vacation filled with wisdom, loving, and delicious Greek food. Run, don't walk and get a copy:)
