IT ALL STARTED… On the first day of my work in an office of the Investment Management company in London’s City. I remember thinking to myself: “Wow. Is it what I studied for? Is it what my life is going to be about from now on – going to the same office every single day […]

When I reflect back on my life I always remember being a highly sensitive person. During my youth never feeling like I fit in yet always felt such compassion for the world as a whole. I remember as a child having a curious thought to how “Man” could put an imaginary line on a piece […]

Ari Politi

All my life, basically, I was searching for something. When I was young, I liked to ask questions. Questions such as “why we are here”, “what we are here for”, “why there are certain things we should do and certain things we should not”. Growing up Jewish, I could only eat certain food, and I […]

I was miserable. I thought it was because of the company, the people, the incentive system – all flawed. I was struggling. I wanted changes. I tried, in many ways. One day, I finally told my boss that I wanted to quit. After that, they changed my job title, content, salary. So I stayed. But […]

I always had a desire to bring something positive to the world, to contribute beyond myself. I had it from very early on. I was always looking for how to do it. I think it was a bit buried when I was a teenager. Then I studied engineering out of practicality. After finishing that, I […]

Tony the Taurus

Chapter I (00:00): My name is Tony. I am 68. I am getting old, and that’s the problem. I used to work on a fishing boat, in deep sea. That was my job. I worked in -40 degree. It was very cold, and you can’t wear gloves, because the line will slip. You worked with […]

I’m absolutely hyperactive. I hate routines. When I was working for someone, I had to repeat the same thing again and again, and I just couldn’t do it. So I started a few businesses. Some were successful; some were not. My life has been hectic, between routines and my small ventures. I was looking for […]

Much of this journey into the cage fights…has been driven by a slight lunacy of attempts to fill a deep void – something I’d been educated to believe could be patched from the outside, with achievements, things, people, money and notoriety – and deep lack of self worth. For a long time I thought I […]

When I was young, I was not terribly joyful. I was always perplexed by my existence, and I had a strong spiritual longing ever since I could remember. I was very sensitive. Quite early on, I could feel energy in my body. I didn’t know what it was, but it was very alive. Later, I […]

Catia Squarcia

I grew up in a small village in the mountains and always felt it was too small for me. However, I remain extremely attached to my roots and can never really define my identity without them. I have always searched for more, more knowledge, more answers, more myself, more solutions to my existential interrogatives and […]
