Yes!And… is a series of interviews with some of the guests that visit Damanhur, to share their stories and inspire us to build a more awakened world, together.

The guest in this episode is Oleg Cherne, aka Ben Chelero, aka Chom: many names for his many personalities and roles. Oleg is a Tao master, a spiritual teacher, an explorer, a philosopher, a researcher and an alchemic wine maker. Oleg was born in Russia, in the former Soviet Union, and as a child, he fell from a roof and was very ill for a long time. This led him to develop a strong ability for introspection and led him to a discovery of his body’s healing abilities. In this interview Oleg describes how the lack of “external freedom” opened him up to the possibility of exploring his inner freedom. At the time he grew up, in the Soviet Union one could have been imprisoned for spiritual practices, yet Oleg says that “the most difficult battle is the one with yourself.”

Extraordinary conditions often give the opportunity to express extraordinary talents: watch this video, meet Oleg and hear his incredible life’s story.
