The Classical Way

Don’t change Yourself, Better Yourself

“There is one end [aim] we all have – no tin virtue of being rational, but simply in virtue of being human – and that is happiness.” Aristotle

We are inspired by the thinkers of Classical Wisdom and their positive philosophy on life. Classical Wisdom embodies a humanistic view on life as a journey forward, a journey of learning and bettering yourself. It is about moving forward on a path you create, drawing meaning from the little and large matters of your life; from the color of your front door to the last time you said I love you. 

Life can be what you make of it and you can give it meaning and purpose. When you participate in the experience of living to gain personal wisdom (sophia, “σοφία”) and cultivate your character in bringing out the Best in yourself.

Experience the Wisdom

Stimulate your Mind and Energize your Heart

You will experience this philosophy of life through our authentic Tales of Wisdom.

Each Tale is a program singular in purpose, designed to offer you as a whole, a single life enriching experience giving you a fresh perspective on how you come to view life and find inspiration in your journey to well-being. 

We sift through Classical works of art and literature, theatre, philosophy and mythology and unearth their ideas to create fulfilling experiences for you. Philosophize about truth between the streets of Athens’ neighborhoods, explore the makings of wise choices in the flavors of Aigialeia’s wine or muse in the light of your ideals dancing Zeimbekiko in Piraeus. Be invigorated by Classical Wisdom!

Our Tales are made up of a collection of alternate activities that allow you to experience the wisdom naturally and spontaneously. 

A Sophia’s Best Mentor brings the wisdom to life with dialectic games and exercises. All the while, you come close to locals. Through their practices and activities you experience the techne of their craft and witness wisdom applied in reality. Marrying the concept and practice of wisdom into an experience designed to bring out the best in you.   

And all of this in authentic locations of sun-soaked Greece!

Find the Happy Human in You

Classical Wisdom has one of the most accepting philosophies of the human condition; revealing an acceptance of the humanly imperfect that is as strong as the desire for the human ideal. It nurtures a deep appreciation for the experience of living, not as a series of milestones but as a journey of self-development. 

But this journey to personal wisdom (Sophia, “σοφία”) is one that requires of us to plunge, as humans, in the experience of living. To allow ourselves to be human, to expose ourselves to the paradox of our feelings and to connect with others in discovering ourselves. It is an enabling journey that helps us fulfill our potential as humans through personal learnings. 

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Aristotle
