Learning to Love (24.01 14:00)


“Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved, rather that of loving, of one’s capacity to love. (…) People think that to love is simple, but that to find the right object to love – or to be loved by – is difficult” Erich Fromm.
We think that love is something that happens to us, that if we are lucky or maybe if we become loveable enough, we will find someone who will love us. What we don’t consider is how good are we at offering it. Love is a skill, and as such it can be developed by practicing consistently and with persistence.
In this training session we will not try to apply quick fixes and simple ways to find love. We will rather look into love as something rooted in our existence and start the work of making it part of our character. Then ultimately love becomes not something that happens to us accidentally, but something we consciously decide and take responsibility to do.

Trainer: Sotiria Athanasiadou

Sotiria is someone who has always admired greatness, but who knows that achieving it takes a daily fight and persistence against outer and inner challenges. As a person she never stops learning and she enjoys making connections between seemingly unrelated fields. It is these connections from her background in health and performing arts, her interests in philosophy and her personal experiences from fighting against the challenges that she brings as a trainer.

As a trainer I am mostly interested in deep self-awareness and connection, and have previously delivered sessions on these topics, including a session on Vulnerability in the last edition of OTF.

What participants of previous OTF thought of Sotiria’s session?

“I must say that this session fulfiled all of my expectations. It was designed amazingly. It was deep and insightful. Trainers created a very safe space where everyone felt free to share. I am really impressed with that session. Great job!”


“the session had a great atmosphere, thank you so much. You managed to have a safe, sharing and deep thinking environment. I got to think about a lot of things”

“I am leaving the session with so many inspiring ideas for self-development and a better understanding of myself.  Great atmosphere during all the session, I always felt comfortable to share and open up.
