The Aegean House
A modern publication and a timeless place for personal growth. We talk about art, psychology, philosophy and culture. We value the conservation of the classic ideals of individual self-development through the study of one self.
We promote quality of life and we open some of the biggest questions about who we are, what are we doing in this world and what can we do. We don’t owe the ideas that are here, we are not the authors of the teachings we share. We are only trying to explain what was already been written long time ago, and re frame it within our present time.
What we do
AEH was created as a dynamic mix of publications and workshops for those who are looking for a place to grow, improve, or just trying to find themselves.
Through our content, we can discover a better understanding of why the things happen to us, or how we ended this way we don’t want. Answers to those critical questions “what should I do” or “how can I change my situation”, come from a deep study of the resources we posses and who do we really want to be. Here you can also find tools to go through the things that you no longer want in your life and you wish to change, and discover if you can create the possibility for that to happen. A journey into self-knowledge that will allow you to see the life you are able to have.
How we do
The power to become who and how you want to be does not come from the help of another person, it comes directly from within yourself. Each one of us has an inner part that is fully conscious of everything. But we are disconnected from that consciousness. To connect ourselves back with that part, it requires a lot of tough work. So, there is no me-making-you become more mindful, or helping-you to become better. That is like trying to open a flower bud with your fingers, but causing you to break it. But, through a shared process of thinking together, studying, trying something, reflecting and sharing comments again together, we can get in contact with the possibility of changing life as we know it. However, each person has their own timing for development, and it’s your own choice to discover it when you are ready for it.
“The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. Whatever can happen at any time can happen today.”
