Sesto Giovanni Castagnoli
Following my commercial education and after having held several executive positions, I became independent at the age of 26.
I set up a number of companies both nationally and internationally while also playing in the national table tennis league, acting as an official and sports journalist.
Nearly a decade of business activity in Africa has not only had a great impact on my longing for a “different” form of economy but also on my spiritual development. During this time, I have managed various projects in West Africa and co-founded several companies, an association for the promotion of educational projects as well as the Swiss-African Chamber of Commerce.
As longstanding president and co-founder of the World Spirit Forum and the World Transforming Initiatives, I have extensively promoted issues concerning the change of consciousness.
My life’s journey has led me to almost all the continents and very many countries. Journeys including lectures and workshops have led me to countries such as India, Kazakhstan, the USA, the UK, Russia Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Greece, Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Holland, Germany, and Belgium.
I have two grown-up sons, Romano and Claudio, from my first marriage. My second wife Gabriele and I have spent four marvellous years in an apartment in the monastery shelter in Baldegg (Lucerne). Since February 2016 we are on a pilgrimage with open end.
Topics of my lectures and workshops are:
Spirituality in Business Life, Natural Economic and Financial Systems, Mutual Understanding of Cultures and Religions, Noosphere and other topics covering the change in consciousness.
