Leonidas is an author / artist currently living in Athens, Greece, studying, working and interacting with individuals and groups worldwide, through the Internet as well as in his travels.
He was born in Nicosia, Cyprus in 1967, and holds a B.Sc. in Operations Research from U.C. Berkeley and an M.B.A. from the Imperial College of London. He speaks English and Greek fluently and is well versed in French.
After completing his university education in the fall of 1991, he started out in in the Publishing industry as General Manager of a daily newspaper and monthly magazine. Five years later I started my own business as a value-added reseller of high-end software and hardware for the media industry, picking numerous computer-related skillsets along the way. I sold my business in 2000 and moved to Greece, to pursue a freelance career in software and content development. In early 2003 I left Athens and eventually landed in New York City, where I remained for almost two years.
In 1999, while still running my own company, I was introduced to esoteric philosophy and the new age movement and found myself powerfully drawn in this direction. The period between 1999 and 2003 was one of major transitions which led me onto a more spiritual path and signaled the beginning of a life focused on the path of consciousness. Since returning from the U.S. to Greece in the summer of 2004, I have become involved in numerous projects from various disciplines, most all of them related to communication, learning and the transmission of knowledge.
I currently write music, fiction and non-fiction and produce conventional as well as digital works of communication and art. My research in the field of consciousness inevitably brought me into contact with meditation and a number of healing modalities: I am an NLP Practitioner certified under Ian McDermott at i.t.s., and a a Psycho-Energetic Bodywork Practitioner, certified by Stathis Lazaris, the founder of this specific healing modality. I am taking my time with a Master’s degree in Metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology, and have recently co-authored a pocket book in English on Spirituality and Consciousness.
I work and experiment with meditation and healing on a regular basis. My special interest is energy and energy work in relation to the human being.
