Ready to start your healthy lifestyle? Get the book that inspired Million Ways to Live.*Monastic Heavy Metal* While the views and landscapes of the mystical Mt. Athos peninsula may be stunning and breathtaking, the holy mountain is more known for its long historical monastic traditions, which date back to at least 800 A.D. The Greek Orthodox monks that inhabit the region purposefully remove themselves from everything except God. They live a simple, strict, and moral life only to become one with Jesus Christ. But in the modern day world, you don’t have to become a monk to aspire to their noble principles and values. Today on Million Ways to Live, we meet Thomas Aslanidis, a heavy metal musician who lives by monastic principles and channels the region’s spiritual energy into his music. *About Million Ways To Live* In our international documentary travel series, we focus on what all these people have in common. We call them Healthy Lifestyle Principles:
Real Food, Movement, Rest & Relaxation, Lifelong Learning, Community, and Love.
Join us as we travel around the world to show you incredible people with amazing stories that are sure to inspire and motivate you. After watching a few episodes, we hope everyone is a little more open-minded and accepting of other ways of life and finding happiness.
