My book inspired by Rhodes island

I am living and working on my very first book on the island of Rhodes since 2017.

I am searching for my answers in life through researching and at the same time experiencing the contemporary life on the Greek islands of the Dodecanese, therefore this culture will be in the focus of my first book.

I was captivated by Rhodes island since my first visit in 2009. After that I became a ‘repeater’, who spent all of her free time and savings on visiting the island again and again. There was something in this local culture and nature I could not resist or ignore.

In 2015 I decided to take it more serious and my visits from that year became researches about the character of the local culture which is fading day by day. I did not have a method or education for my research, I had only a very strong inner motivation to do this job. Through this independent project I started to know myself better (especially since the time I moved to Rhodes and lived alone there in a foreign culture as a single Hungarian woman trying to set up a new life), and to understand the impact of a culture in one’s life. I started to discover a lot about human relationships, and about the pathology of the culture we live in today. 

Therefore this project about my first book contains:

  • an attempt to represent the cultural character of a Greek island through various interviews with locals and through my own experiences (highlighting rituals, habits, customs that shape the way of living and thinking)
  • a philosophical dissertation on the relation between a culture and an individual, on universal human values and on mental and emotional health of a human being
  • an attempt to define the cultural traits, global tendencies and certain human behaviour which kill our dignity, make us insane, unhealthy and disconnected from ourselves

I am a Hungarian woman living on the Greek islands since 2017. I am researching here about human integrity & values, wisdom of archaic cultures and myths, wisdom and diversity of nature, cosmic analogies, interrelation between the individual and community, women's health, self-awareness, self-healing. Currently working on her first book on Rhodes island, Greece. ~ Főként az írás nyelvén közlő önálló utat kijárni próbáló gondolkodó embernek, nonkonformistának tartom magam. Témáim a kultúra hatása az emberre, emberi sorsok és motivációk mély szinten történő megismerése és megértése, archaikus mítoszok és kozmikus analógiák, a természet törvényszerűségeinek és diverzitásának megismerése és megértése, nőiség megértése és kibontása a saját életemben, valamint saját magam felfedezése, egy belső-külső tudatosság és az önazonosság fokozása ameddig csak lehet. Jelenleg első könyvemen dolgozom Rodosz szigetén.
