John Tarantino

There are times in life when we feel trapped, alone, and hopeless. We are stuck in a bad place and don’t see a way out. These negative and overwhelming feelings can result from failed marriages, family issues, business setbacks, medical problems, self-doubt, bullying and many other things. This TEDX Talk, Redemption Stories, shows that there is always a way out, a way forward and the ability to move ahead from what may seem to be insurmountable obstacles in our paths.

Through the stories of two men, whose lives intersect in various ways, John Tarantino shows that there is hope and redemption, that they are very real things. And those very real things can change our lives for the better. They can not only transform ourselves, but our families, our workplaces, and our communities.

The message of Redemption Stories has resonated throughout the world, making it the #1 TEDx Global Talk in 2023, with now more than 21 million views. No matter who you are, where you live, what your background is, and what you otherwise may believe from a faith-based perspective, hope and redemption are real things that we can all experience. Believe.  Hope always finds a way. Always.

Guruji Shrii Arnav

There is a talk and then there is “The TALK” which is the Prophet of Hope talk by the mentor of mentors- Guruji Shrii Arnav, who in his moving and impactful-less than 10-minute talk transported us to the bed of the 17 year old, athletic, muscular boy, in a diaper, whimpering with fear.

And as we got transported from those visuals in Guruji’s moving baritone without the need for any video, image, or a slideshow-we touched a chord in the human inside us and resolved again to be First kind to ourselves and then extend the kindness to our fellow human beings. 

We express gratitude to the Grandmaster of circling the square and squaring in the circle who has faced abundant fears and still had the courage to give that talk in a diaper in honour of that boy.

How is that-for demolishing one’s own ego and besides citing solid scientific data & perhaps predicting the clear & present danger and upcoming challenges- The Prophet Inspired & Exhorted us to be the “Prophets of Hope” a noble but a lofty goal indeed- Bur we will try-The Guruji Shrii Arnav’ way.

Guruji Shrii Arnav currently is the mentor of Gemstoneuniverse. The world’s largest portal for natural untreated, astrological gemstones.
