Alexis Karpouzos is a spiritual teacher whose methods do not belong to any lineage or style. It teaches a form of total acceptance – a dismantling of the armor of the heart so that we can live vibrantly in the here and now. Alexis karpouzos shares from his own waking experience a way out of seeking fulfillment in the future and accepting “all of this here and now”. His spiritual search collapsed with the clear recognition of the non-dual nature of everything and the discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary. In the clarity of this vision, life became what it always was: intimate, open, loving and spontaneous, and was Alexis with a deep understanding of the root illusion behind all human suffering, and a love of the present moment. . Alexis currently hosts meetings, retreats and private sessions around the world, gently but directly bringing people back to the deep acceptance inherent in the present moment. Alexis’ teaching is simple. He helps people discover who they really are, beyond all thoughts and judgments about themselves, even amidst the stress and struggle of modern life and intimate relationships. His style is direct and uncompromising and yet full of humanity, humor and compassion. He believes that freedom is everyone’s birthright. He does not belong to any tradition or lineage, and makes his teaching accessible to all.
