Nikos Batras is an author, website owner, and musician. He was born in Athens, Greece, in 1982, and raised in Brussels, Belgium. He studied Biology at the Free University of Brussels and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

Since his early teenage years, he has had a keen interest in reading scientific magazines and books, particularly about the universe. This interest later expanded to other fields, such as biology, philosophy, and psychology.

Over the years, life situations led him to apply various psychological theories he had encountered in books. Through practical experience, he rejected many of them, some because they proved ineffective and others because they provided only temporary relief.

At the end of 2013, he discovered the so-called "spiritual path" 
through the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, Rupert Spira, Adyashanti, Ram Dass, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Ramana Maharshi, and others.

This path led him to the knowledge of the true nature of the Self, beyond the egoic personality, individual identity, and identification with the body. Motivated to share this valuable knowledge, he created the popular greek website "Self-Awareness" in 2014 (which he manages to this day) and wrote the book "Awareness - Realizing Our True Nature".
