Grevena is the "Mushrooom Kingdom" of Greece, and is also the site of athe mytho-poetic Geopark Grevena-Kozani...I was invited by famous TV presenter Yanna Darilis, who is a wellness expert, currently making a documentary about the place...
Little did I know that this magical place would heal and transform me forever... Was it the mushrooms? Was it the kindest, most welcoming people? Was it the waterfalls, the pinetrees, the temples or the traditional Greek music that pierced my soul? I'll never know...but I fell in love with the place and its people for good...
Alot of you may be seeking a "magical mushroom experience" but you cannot separtate the mushrooms from the magic of the landscape and the people, who are decendants of Alexander the Great.
In this week's episode of "AlkistisTV" on YOUTUBE, I take you along to get a glimpse of my journey.

My husband passed away on November 28th of this month, and in my deep #grieving,I am exploring the idea that there may be an #afterlife in this weeks #YouTube episode of #alkistisTV. The belief that some aspect of an individual survives after #death—usually, the individual’s soul—is common to the great majority of the world’s #religions and even some scientific communities.
The question of whether there is life after death is a deeply philosophical and spiritual one, and it doesn't have a definitive scientific answer. Different cultures, religions, and belief systems have varying beliefs about what happens after a person dies. Here are a few perspectives:
Epictetus, the great Greek philosopher of Stoicism was once asked, "What is the fruit of studying philosophy?" He answered: "Only the most beautiful and proper harvest of the truly educated-tranquility, fearlessness and freedom..." He explained how, "...we should not trust the masses who say only the free can be educated, but rather the lovers of wisdom who say that only the educated are free."
So in this week's episode, I share with you a talk that I gave at the residence of the Spanish ambassador to Greece about my 3-Step method: The Alkistis Method #TAM Is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy #CBT based on Greek Philosophy and Neuroscience. It involves questioning one's thoughts and beliefs in order to identify and challenge irrational or unhelpful thinking patterns to make better decisions.

The ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, and modern proponents of the Art of Manifestation appear, on the surface, to inhabit divergent realms of thought. Plato's Theory of Forms posits a world of unchanging, non-material forms (or ideals) that represent the most accurate reality. The Art of Manifestation, on the other hand, emphasizes the individual's ability to bring desires into physical existence through focused intention and belief. Yet, a deeper exploration reveals an intriguing confluence where these two seemingly disparate concepts merge, revealing insights into the nature of reality, desire, and human potential.
Plato's Theory of Forms contends that non-material abstract forms, or ideals, represent the highest and most fundamental kind of reality. These forms are unchangeable and eternal; they are perfect representations of the myriad of imperfect, changing entities we encounter in the material world. For Plato, the world we perceive through our senses is but a shadow of this higher reality, a fleeting reflection of the eternal forms.
In the realm of manifestation, the focus shifts from the abstract to the tangible, from the eternal to the temporal. The Art of Manifestation posits that through intention, belief, and alignment with the universe, individuals can bring their desires into physical reality. The manifestor becomes a creator, their thoughts and feelings serving as the chisel that shapes the marble of the universe, revealing the hidden form within.
At first glance, these two philosophies seem to diverge; one elevates the non-material, while the other seeks to materialize the immaterial. However, an integrative perspective unveils a harmonious dialogue between these seemingly contrasting views. The confluence arises when we consider the Forms as the ultimate ideals, the blueprints of perfection that the Art of Manifestation seeks to bring into reality.
Imagine the Form of a tree, an entity embodying the perfect essence of ‘treeness’ in Plato’s higher reality. In the Art of Manifestation, an individual might seek to bring forth a tree in their physical environment. This tree, as a representation in the sensory world, is inherently imperfect and transient, yet it emanates from the eternal Form of the tree. The manifestor, through intention and alignment, acts as a bridge between the world of forms and the sensory world, drawing the ideal closer to tangible existence.
Further, the process of manifestation is, in essence, a journey towards alignment with one’s true desires and the universal energies that govern existence. This alignment resonates with Plato’s notion of ""Anamnesis"", the act of remembering the knowledge of the Forms that the soul has forgotten upon entering the physical body. As individuals practice the Art of Manifestation, they engage in a form of "Anamnesis", aligning their desires with the ideals of the Forms, and bringing them closer to the ultimate reality.
Moreover, both Plato's Theory of Forms and the Art of Manifestation underscore the transformative power of the mind and the potential for human beings to shape their reality. For Plato, knowledge of the Forms brings enlightenment and understanding of the true nature of existence. Similarly, the Art of Manifestation empowers individuals to create their reality consciously, based on their understanding and alignment with their desires and the universe.
Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” further illuminates the integration of these two philosophies. The cave-dwellers, chained and limited to shadows on the wall, represent individuals bound by the limitations of sensory perception and unaware of their creative potential. The journey out of the cave symbolizes the path of manifestation, where individuals break free from limitations, align with the universal energies, and bring forth the light of the Forms into the shadows of the physical world.
In conclusion, integrating Plato’s “Theory of Forms” with the Art of Manifestation offers a harmonious perspective on the relationship between the ideal and the tangible, between the eternal and the temporal. The Forms serve as the ultimate ideals, the blueprints of perfection, that the Art of Manifestation seeks to realize in the physical world. Through intention, belief, and alignment, individuals act as bridges between these two realms, drawing forth the light of the Forms into the sensory world. This confluence of ideals invites a deeper exploration of human potential, the nature of reality, and the transformative power of the mind, opening new avenues for understanding and personal growth.
Stoicism and Buddhism, while emerging from very different cultural and philosophical backgrounds, share several key principles that guide individuals towards a life of happiness and inner peace. Below we explore some of the most prominent commonalities between the two philosophies:
1. Emphasis on Self-Control and Discipline
By adopting practices and perspectives from both Stoic and Buddhist philosophies, individuals can navigate towards a path of happiness and inner peace, characterized by acceptance, understanding, and compassion. Both philosophies foster resilience, equanimity, and a deep understanding of oneself and the nature of reality, helping individuals live fulfilling and peaceful lives.

#Plato taught in his book, “The Republic”: "Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul." Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher, held a deep respect for the power of music and believed it played a significant role in the shaping of character and the soul. In this week’s episode, I will share with you, a piece of music that has been derived from the Golden Ratio measurements of the Acropolis of Athens! That’s right~! You will be able to listen to the music that comes from the Golden Ratio measurements of the Acropolis of Athens!

There are many fascinating clinical studies about the power of music on humans, animals and plants…The one I want to focus on today is that of Japanese geneticist Suzumu Ono, who in 1986 discovered DNA music by converting the nucleotide bases G T C and A to the musical notes A C G and D respectively. This intriguing Revelation led to the question: If DNA can be translated into music, can music in turnaffect or change our DNA? Sound as we now know possesses mass and has the ability to vibrate matter.
By delving into the study of “Cymatics” and exploring the potential effects of music on DNA, we can begin to uncover the possibility of utilizing music as a healing tool.
Incidentally, the word “Cymatics” derives from the Greek word, “Kyma” which means “Wave”.
The DNA-Music Connection demonstrated by Dr.Ono’s ground- breaking research who translated the DNA sequences into melodious compositions, opened a door to a realm of unexplored possibilities. By associating specific musical notes with nucleotide bases Ono revealed the inherent musicality encoded within our genetic blueprint. This discovery not only ignited fascination but also prompted profound questions about the reciprocal relationship between DNA and the music. If DNA the fundamental blueprint of life can be transformed into music, what potential influence could music have on our genetic code?
Ono's approach of converting DNA into harmonious melodies highlighted the underlying connection between the complex language of genetics and the universal language of Music. Now let’s circle back to the Golden Ratio and the healing music of the Parthenon in the Acropolis of Athens.
As you may recall, The Golden Ratio, often represented by the Greek letter ϕ (phi), is an irrational number that possesses many interesting properties and appears in various fields such as mathematics, art, architecture, and nature. There are many characteristics and occurrences of the Golden Ratio which we can’t go into detail on this video, but we will focus on Nature, Art and Architecture:
The Golden Ratio can be found in various aspects of the natural world, including the arrangement of leaves on plants, the branching of trees, the spiral structure of shells, galaxies and even our own face and body proportions.
The Golden Ratio is also found in famous artworks and architectural designs, including the Parthenon in Athens and the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Golden Ratio not only makes these buildings more aesthetically pleasing, it has been observed over thousands of years that merely being near these buildings trigger a sense of inner harmony.
It’s interesting to note here that the word “harmony” is derived from the Greek word, “Armonia”, and the word “Music” is derived from the Greek word for “Muse”...
The Nine Muses of the ancient Greeks are goddesses of the arts and sciences. They were believed to inspire humans in various endeavors from music and poetry to astronomy; Each Muse has a specific domain of influencing humans.
The Muses were considered the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (the goddess of memory)...In other words the right music can make us remember something about who we are and where we came from…As in, the origin that’s hidden in our DNA.
The Greeks built the Parthenon with such dimensions, as the Golden Ratio, as a way to recall their Source Energy.
You can imagine the Parthenon as something of a ‘Cosmic Harp’ that resonates with your DNA, triggering a type of “Gateway Process”...through synchronizing the brain hemispheres.
As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said,
“Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music”
So now, enough theory, it’s time for you to enjoy a taste of this universal, “Music of the Spheres” as Plato called it, that the Parthenon transmits.
To listen to this recording I recommend you use headphones or earpods, and that you are in a safe, comfortable postition, preferably dark space, lying on your back, with your body ‘spread’, like Leonardo Davinci’s “Vitruvian Man”…
You can listen to the first 15 minutes of the music now, and invest in the 3 hour version from the website link below.
Please prepare for a deeply relaxing ‘tripp’ through what I call “The Acropolis Star-GateWay”...
