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.

    Ep. 14 | Healing the wounds - Amara part 2

    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.

So she becomes Amara and she must learn to stay alone to continue living her quest for spirituality, to meet the expectations of the community and to be able to go to the Summer Festival in Oregon, the festival that brings together sannyasins from all over the world since Osho decided to create his ideal city in America, in that piece of land he called Rajneeshpuram. And so, between school and commune, Amara is slowly being introduced to a very simple way of making money, which is to do what so many other girls in the community already do and which until now has only been hinted at in the memories of adult and child sannyasins: selling herself.

    Dragon Lady - Part 6

    By Roberta Lippi | After years of impositions and dramatic acceptance of a world totally out of reality, Deeksha realizes how fundamental her role was in the birth, growth and fall of the sannyasin world. Too many voices of those who have suffered and those who have been lost who have remained silent, too much violence and abuse. This is the definitive delivery of the truth, so that history does not repeat itself.To learn more: Rajneeshpuram: Inside the Cult of Bhagwan and Its Failed American Utopiaby Russell KingSins of My Father: A Daughter, a Cult, a Wild Unravellingby Lily DunnCharisma and Control in Rajneeshpuram: A Community without Shared Values(American Sociological Association Rose Monographs)by Lewis F.

    Dragon Lady - Part 5

    By Roberta Lippi | Deeksha follows up on the guru's last requests, but as soon as he can he escapes Rajneeshpuram.

    Dragon Lady - Part 4

    In New Jersey, Deeksha and Sheela indulge the whims of the guru as they try to give life to the new commune of Rajneeshpuram, but suddenly the story takes a turn for one of the two: while Sheela indulges Osho in everything he does, asks and teaches, Deeksha has a brainwave: who is really the man she thought she had known ten years earlier and who has always considered a teacher? And what does he really want?
