To anyone who hasn’t lost their parents, here’s some news – you never get over it'
This is an excert from an artical written for the Guardian.com Entitled They're my parents. I miss them by: Eleni Kyriacou:Friday 9 December 2011 19.05 EST
On a bitterly cold April morning in 1998, my father died of a heart attack. The shock of his death was like a punch to the stomach. It was the first bereavement I'd experienced up close. For weeks, a cloak of confusion, rage and disbelief descended. By contrast, my mother's death, five years later, held no shock. It arrived clearly signposted, with a predictability that was agonising: diagnosis, scan, operation, false hope, radiotherapy, hospice, morphine, death.
At 39 I'd become an adult orphan, a member of the club that nobody wants to join but most will. One parent dying was devastating; but when my mother died it changed me for ever. I felt anchorless, as if I was no longer anyone's child. I may have looked the same but something inside me shifted.
A friend likens being an adult orphan to being the only tree left standing in a forest. I know what she means. For me it's as if my roots have been hacked away: my parents are the reason I'm here, what held me up. They had been the one stable point during my whole life, the constant. Yes, I'm an adult and can stand alone. But there are times I still need my mother and father, times I feel very alone.

with Eleni Kelakos of the The Eleni Group Let’s face it: You can’t take your eyes off of a baby. That’s because they’re completely and comfortably present in their tiny little body, inhabiting the moment like it’s nobody’s business. They’ve got what Eleni calls Transformational Presence, which she defines as “a person’s ability to deeply transform and affect others by being genuinely and passionately present.” The greatest actors, leaders and speakers exude a Transformational Presence that leaves an indelible impression both on and off the stage. Like them, you were born with Transformational Presence. It’s just grown dim over time, like the embers of a fire, waiting for you to stoke it into full flame.
Transformational Presence takes awareness. It takes discipline. It takes honoring Eleni’s Five Commandments of Great Acting, Great Speaking and Great Leadership: Know Thyself; Be Thyself; Prepare Thyself; Turn Thyself on and Commit Thyself. Eleni will discuss these Five Commandments, and share with you the tools you need to reignite and embrace your unique Transformational Presence so you can speak, pitch and live with greater authenticity and impact.
Poet EleniSikelianos, the great granddaughter of the Nobel-nominated Greek poet Angelos Sikelianos, was briefly a biology student in her undergraduate career, drawn to oceanography and microbiology. Although those formal studies were abandoned, the language of wild oceanaria and cellular activity continues to inform her writing. At twenty, Sikelianos left the States to spend nearly two years traveling (often by thumb) through Europe and Africa(from London to Ankara, and from Haifa to Dar-es-Salaam).
