My book inspired by Rhodes island

At the moment I am living and working on my very first book on the tiny island of Nisyros on the Dodecanese archipelago of Greece after living for two years on the island of Rhodes between 2017 and 2019. I am searching for my answers in life through researching and experiencing the local contemporary life on these Greek islands – since 2015 – 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 …

Mental, emotional health & culture

Since my childhood my passion is a deep discovery about us, humans. I am observing my environment in order to find the epicenter of motivations and actions under the surface. As I feel it on my skin, our contemporary culture lost the healthy loving and creative human individual as an ultimate goal of each area of life. Neither education, neither the healthcare system, neither our legal system and the whole social apparatus we live in does NOT deal with emotional and mental sanity of humans. Our technology allows us to fly to the moon, but we are still lacking basic knowledge about our own nature on mental and emotional aspects. This knowledge requires the ability of self-reflexion, and more attention to our feelings, intuitions, the symptoms of our physical body, our human relationships and to our culture. The culture we live in has a huge impact on each individual (especially at early ages of life), and also we, grown-up individuals shape our culture with our actions, decisions or with the lack of actions or decisions. …

Weekly HELLO from Rhodes – 08/04/19

Hello, welcome to the weekly magazine of a Hungarian woman, who moved to a Greek island in 2017 and writing her book there through an intensive research and interviews with locals. The purpose is giving you an insight about the daily life of this island as a foreigner, and also about the book-writing process.   Week 15th / 1st April – 7th April (and all the weeks before…) Oh yes, I just couldn’t keep my promise about posting weekly. I should have known myself better. And also this island. Because on Rhodes you cannot make plans ever… We say it very often here with the other foreigners. Somehow our experience is this: everything is just a maybe and nothing is for sure here. There is always a problem to solve, there is always an unexpected thing coming to you, so you learn to be really flexible. Back in Hungary I have been to Budapest in the meanwhile just for 5 days in February,  which was an amazing trip. Visiting my country after 15 transformative months …

The importance of our intuitions and our own nature in raising a healthy generation / Megérzéseink és saját belső természetünk fontossága egy egészséges generáció felnevelésében

* Görgess lejjebb a magyar verzióhoz * Dear Reader, this time I would like to post a video about a very important topic. This topic is exactly our culture that we live in, and the way how we can live a healthier life inside this really crazy social/economic environment. In the recent past I participated in a Birth Doula Training in Hungary, because I was pretty much sure that the roots of everything in our life goes back to the beginning of our life. And the impact of the environment, the experiences that surrounds us already when we are a fetus, and then especially around the birth process throughout our early years. Women’s health in general, the health during pregnancy, the emotional support of the mother during the birth process, the support for the new family that promotes bonding and nurturing environment for the new life can establish our healthy future on Earth. And it is not an extreme romantic statement. Too many things around us indicate that we just don’t give a damn about …

*magyar hanganyag a post végén! Hello, welcome to the weekly magazine of a Hungarian woman, who moved to a Greek island in 2018 and writing a book there through an intensive research and interviews with locals. The purpose is giving you an insight about the daily life of this island as a foreigner all around the year, and also about the book-writing process. And you can participate in this process too! Every week there is a main thought/question at the end of the post, that you can comment your own thoughts, feelings, ideas about. Different approaches, different way of thinkers are always create movement. And this is what we need!   Week 4th / 21st January – 27th January The Apocalypse is here The weather last week on Rhodes was very similar to a catastrophe movie. We had 3 earthquakes in one week. No injuries or damages happened, but it is a very scary feeling. I felt only the one on Thursday 22nd January, which was the smallest (4.6), but all the furnitures were shaking …
