A deep empathy for the human condition has been the central theme of my life.
Even as a child, I felt a strong sense of people’s struggles – witnessing those around me on their epic existential quests for the elusive state called ‘happiness’.
In my own early adulthood, I learned that far from a fairytale existence, much of human life was fraught with pain, trauma and suffering.
But I also stumbled on a lesser-known truth: - that human beings have an incredible, innate and underrated capacity to heal.
That given the right conditions, we can not only overcome the inevitable pain of life, but evolve exponentially to achieve something far greater than happiness - our full human potential.
