Chris White was raised very privileged. He studied international Management with honors, he was taught in a private course on Startup Thinking by billionaire Peter Thiel himself. He also worked as the personal assistant of one of the most successful food restaurants in Germany and his first startup won several prizes and funding. In his early twenties, he spent driving in a $150,000 sports car and living in a penthouse. However, he wasn’t happy! It didn’t fulfill him. Something was missing. He realized he couldn’t attain his highest self with the material side only. 

To become the best representation of himself, he realised that he needs to develop holistically, both material and spiritual. Hence, he sold everything he had and started to venture into the other extreme of spirituality. After attending countless seminars, he became a breathwork facilitator. Then he founded the Master of love and life program, as part of it, he started doing one-month awakening challenges all over the world to learn from the best spiritual masters. Last year alone, he traveled 2,5 times around the whole world and did 11 one month awakening challenges. He lived with monks in Thailand, did a Harvard online course in Buddhism, lived with the Maasai tribe in the African Savanna and got initiated into their tribe. He also learned from the world’s greatest Qigong & Kung-fu Masters in China & Thailand, went into the remotest Amazonian rainforest and learned from Shamans there. To understand more about human beings, he conducted a social experiment for one month living on the streets in Germany as a homeless person. These were just 6 out of 11 awakening experiments last year only.

He realized it’s not about choosing between the rational & the spiritual, it’s about balancing the two. Ever since he is a rational spiritual bridge builder helping other people to balance their two superpowers too.

In his journey to conquer challenges in Vietnam, he chose SURFSPACE as a stopover and rented a video room for his lecture. In some ways, you will see this special and mysterious SURFSPACE guest with a black suit with a rabbit mask on his face.
