Pari was born in a small greek village in Northern Greece. When he was 10 he moved with his parents to Germany where he later studied Psychology. During his studies he spent a year traveling through India, meeting different spiritual masters, saints and yogis. At the end of that journey he stayed long time in the Ashram of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, later called “Osho”. He also followed the move to America and spent one year living in “Rajneshpuram”, Oregon, the commune that was being constructed around Osho. Upon the returning back home to India, Osho settled down again in Pune, where he stayed till the end. Pari was working there as a guard, as session worker and in the garden, whenever he visited the ashram. Guarding was big fun: sitting and watching.
In the year 1991 he opened together with his friend Anadi and his girl-friend Kali the “Alexis Zorbas Center” in Arillas. The three friends knew each other from before and were excited to create a holiday and meditation center in Arillas, on Corfu. A couple of years later life took Kali to Portugal where she was to co-found another center. Anadi and Pari started to run the Zorbas center together and have been busy till date in creating a home, a spiritual oasis for so many people. The main driving force behind all that is continuing to be love, friendship, trust and meditation.
Early January in 1992 Pari felt a call to go and see another Master in India, Papaji in Lucknow, a direct disciple of the great indian saint Ramana Maharshi. The profound spiritual awakening he experienced there, Pari has been sharing ever since in Satsangs and in Chanting the Mantras at Zorbas and all around the world together with Satyaa, which he married in Lucknow soon later, in Papaji´s presence. In the year 2000 their daughter Mira was born in Corfu. They lived there together continuously till 2008. Recently they moved to Munich, Germany for the schooling of their daughter, but spend the summer months together in the beloved “Zorbas” Center where they are offering their annual Satsang and Chanting Retreats “Hearts On Fire”. Pari is sharing his time between Munich and Corfu during the opening months of the center.
