About Athina


- Born in Patras in 1986
- Finished her Bachelor Degree in Greek Philology in 2009 (University of Patras), followed by a Master Degree in Language Studies in 2010 (Lancaster University, U.K.)
- Left her Ph.D. Degree after 5 years of study (University of Athens), for all the reasons of the world, grateful for the broad knowledge she gained throughout the process.
- Worked in the private sector as a creative writer, editor, and proofreader for 4 years (Athens, 2011-2015) but then, again, she changed her mind.

She reads and writes a lot. Really. In fact, that’s the only thing she has never stopped doing since she was a child.
Her personal literary efforts constitute a whole parallel universe where she experiments, transforms and transmutes whatever makes her feel provoked.
She always works in the energetic sphere of her eternal beloved, who accompanies her from life to life, from plane to plane, from one path to another.
But eventually, she had to overcome it and learn to live “without”.
Now she’ s free, she can wholeheartedly continue with her exploration.

“To begin with an A,
To finish with it,
With no circle having being made
But a whirlwind.”

“One of the most important things in life is the magic that lies beneath the surface, the golden stardust that resides in all things. Learn to see it where the others see just ash, learn to feel it where the others feel the cold, learn to make it with your words and deeds, where the others scream or abstain from any action. Pick up your wand and do some magic!”     Copyright © 2017. Athina Zografaki, All...

“If I speak in human and angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; If I have faith, so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.” (Paul, To the Corinthians, 12:31-13:8a) “In the center of the Creation lies love and only love, the greatest power of the Universe. Love...

“Sorrow comes from our most vulnerable parts and it is to be equally valued to all other emotions. It paves the way to resolution, acceptance and relief. It leads us to the truth of the matter and shows us what is wrong. Bring your sorrow to the surface and express it as honestly as you can. Honor it for what it is and let it run its course. Sorrow, much alike the rain, will not...

“I am slowly and copiously carrying my own responsibility in all matters of life. I am making a steady effort to maintain what I consider to be my “home”. I absorb moisture to keep me going and I leave a trail on my path to facilitate myself, while striving forward. In my world, success is always humble and simple.”     Copyright © 2017.

“If it feels heavy, restrictive or overly blurring for your vision, then, it’s not beneficial for you anymore. Being responsible and committed is one thing, being kept in physical or emotional bondage is another. Leaving in any form of “chosen coercion”, out of fear that you do not deserve any better, is hindering your spiritual journey. Cut through the bondage and make all the invisible hooks visible, so that you can get rid of them, once...
