In this new series presented by Dr Aaron Balick and Nathalie Nahai we explore the stories that define people’s lives. This teaser uncovers how people have lost or found themselves through sex, drugs and technology. Nathalie and Aaron guide us through these narratives and ask the underlying question… What is “self”, and how do we find it?
In our first episode we follow the story of Jack. We are all familiar with what might be called the archetypal story of recovery from addiction which requires one to hit “rock bottom” before being fully able to commit to recovery. But what brings one to rock bottom later in life, can originate from a chain reaction that starts surprisingly early.
In this episode we meet psychotherapist Michele, whose early life was marked not only by the overcoming of childhood deafness, but by the loss of her father, mother, and eventually her sister too. When she experiences a crippling accident and finds herself being called to the jungles of Peru, she embarks on a journey that will change her life forever.
