Yia Mas Presents Ancient Lessons, Modern Wellness: Philosophers, Poets, and Muses

NEW YORK – Yia Mas presents Ancient Lessons, Modern Wellness: Philosophers, Poets, and Muses, online on Zoom, June 3 live or at your convenience, as everyone who purchases the course will receive the video and accompanying materials within 24 hours of the workshop.

The event explores five lessons from antiquity and how they can help us live better lives today. What can we learn from the Delphic precepts? How was Diogenes “the cynic” ahead of his time? What was the peripatetic school and why should we take walks? Why should we call on the muses when we’re feeling writers’ block or feeling creatively stifled? 

Through the lens of several lessons and figures from antiquity, the workshop explores how to live better today and is especially helpful for navigating uncertainty and dealing with anxiety. The cost is $15.

The Yia Mas Spring Edit playlist is also available on Spotify and includes traditional Greek music and a selection of songs from some of Yia Mas founder Kristina Headrick’s favorite contemporary Greek artists, such as Stella and Monika, and in honor of the Pontian Greeks, a few Pontic songs, as well. More information is available on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com, search: Yia Mas Spring Edit.
