• Ep. 14 | Healing the wounds - Amara part 2

    8 FEB 2023 · by Roberta Lippi | In the second part of the story, Amara becomes aware of what happened to her: she was slowly pushed into the world of prostitution. She almost did not realize it, because when it happened she was only a teenager. A teenager, however, who becomes a woman and struggles for years to get out of that unhealthy mechanism. In this episode, Amara tells us about her difficult path to the ascent, a happy and fulfilling life away from the community, which, however, she continued to frequent for a long time after leaving the absurd world into which she sold herself. Today, back Sabine, she has received the answers she has been seeking for years in the words of other podcast witnesses and wants to tell how things really turned out for her and, she is now certain, many other sannyasin girls and children.

Soli by Roberta Lippi.
Soli is one of the first International productions by italian podcast platform storielibere.fm.
Soli brings to the audience the true stories of “Osho’s children'', who in the late 70s and early 80s were brought by their parents to live in the controversial guru’s communes. We hear their memories and voices, discovering the mixed feelings they have now, as adults, towards their childhood journey: the awareness of freedom and unconventionalism, of being part of a special world, but also the confusion, the premature sexual experiences they were exposed to and the loneliness they all felt. They tell how they came to terms with something that deeply affected them, when their parents, suddenly, decided to leave everything and put them in common, at all levels. The international version of Soli has been translated by Edoardo Rialti. The international voice of Roberta Lippi is Cecilia Gragnani.
