The Final Evaluation

The Final Evaluation

I finished my one year, self-designed Master program. After traveling 2,5 x times around the whole world and completing 11 one month awakening experiments it’s time to sum my Master of love and life. Here is the final evaluation of this incredible year across 6 continents and a dozen countries. Here is the…

Final Evaluation

My Master of love and life program has ended without any degree or certificate. When I started it one year ago, my conditioning made me doubt. I had to face the decision between doing an Elite University Master in business innovation and honing my analytical, rational skills further or going for a self-designed Master degree to fully face my other side.

The Beginnings

Awakening Experiment 1 Chris White

The idea of a self-designed Master lingered in the back of my head for years, because in my opinion our western education system misses a lot. It always focuses on the rational side only. And this one sided development has reached an alarming stage. It is producing hordes of people with demonstrable talents but all of the same sort. Only by societies narrow definition of success. We are all highly rational and analytical, but we lack the ‘other’ side.

The Other Side

But what other side am I talking about? It is this intangible ‘other’ side that is hard for our trained rational minds to grasp. It’s the living element of situations that the rational approach often tries to deny. What I am talking about is the side of intuition, of self-realization, of discovering our true nature beyond our illusionary societal identity. 

Awakening experiment 2 Chris White


This side is about challenging our senses and tackling our fears, inhibitions, and childhood traumas. It’s about going inwards, because all that we are searching for has always been buried deep within us. It’s about insightful questions like: How much did our parents influence us? And what is the role of our inner child? It’s about our intuition, our values, our beliefs. It’s about freeing ourselves. It’s about learning to accept and to fully love ourselves and about living a completely free life full of inner peace and compassion. It is also the side which fuels all inspiration, creativity and innovation and in the end, defines what we are, connected, conscious human beings. You could definitely replace other side with spiritual side, but by naming something spiritual you instantly close many doors in rational people. The word spirituality in many people just has a bad reputation of woo woo. That why I like to call it simply “the other side”

Starting Point

However, I felt I can create something that can prepare me better for life than any current University can. I created the Master of love and life and went on a yearlong journey to face this other side.

But non the less I still had doubts. Is this going to pay off?

Can a self-designed Master really be of value? Conditioned thoughts of security and fear entered my mind. You won’t get a real degree, You will have a gap in your CV, You will spend a lot of money, How can you chose this over the prospects of getting into an Elite university?

Now one year later, after completing my Master I certainly found my answers to all these questions but before I reveal it, I want to give you the chance to evaluate it for yourself first.

Comparison with an Elite Master

So let’s evaluate & compare these two approaches. Let’s see what happens when we forget the dominant materialistic rational approach for some time and focus solely on the other side for one year. Let’s compare my Master of love and life with an Elite Master:

The costs:

My self-designed Master was expensive. I spent around 10. 000$ more than I would’ve usually done in comparison to my avg. cost of living as a Bachelor student in Germany.

But it was still a fraction of what I would’ve spent on one of those Elite University Master degree tuition fees. However, the latter is generally seen in the west as a good investment.

Even if you barely can afford it or your parents need to take up a loan, the common notion is: These tuition fees are worth it because what you learn there, will pay you back in the future. Now it’s your turn to decide whether what I learned in my self-designed Master can pay me back too?

The learning content: 

In my self-designed Master I travelled 2,5 times around the whole world. I visited 6 continents and a dozen countries. I read 31 books and did 11 one month challenges. However, this journey was way more than the external fact based achievement side of things. Therefore, I separated what I learned into two perspectives for you. You will first read about the external rational fact based journey and then about the internal, intuitive journey within.

External journey:

In course 1 I started with learning Salsa in the heart of Colombia, in course 2 I created a successful website & learned more about online marketing, In course 3 I did a road trip through the US and searched for inspirations, In one month course number 4 I learned Freediving in Hawaii, In course 5 I lived two months with Shamans in the Amazon rainforest in Peru, In one month challenge No. 6 I learned Taoism and Qi gong and meditated 7 days in a pitch black dark room in Thailand, In course 7 I got to know Floating, Consciousness Lights and Shamanism in Vietnam, In course 8 I achieved a Harvard online degree in Buddhism and learned the Guitar in Australia. In course 9 I empowered street & slum children and refugee women in Kenya and Ethiopia; I also lived with the Maasai and became initiated into their tribe in the African Savanna. In course 10 I studied transpersonal psychology & breathwork at the border of Switzerland and in my final one month challenge 11, I lived in a social experiment for one month without money homeless on the streets of Germany.

But that’s just the rational achievement side of things. I created this Master to face my other side remember? Travelling and seeing places was great but it was still only a beautiful side effect of an internal journey that goes way beyond…

Internal journey

In this one year I went deep inside myself. I answered my deeper questions, I found another world beyond thinking, I’ve got to know myself, my true nature, I healed my childhood traumas, my core wounds, I overcame many fears and inhibitions, I tackled my shadows, no one said this was easy.

I say it was so worth it, I fully expressed my emotions, I reconnected with nature, my passions and creative expressions. I found all these amazing techniques to strive in life and met even more incredible human beings. A deep knowing of what life is all about invaded my being. I broke through conditioning, I opened my heart, I became more humble, I felt the interconnectedness, I saw that I know nothing. As above, so below.

I became nobody to become everything. During this whole year I experienced unmeasurable feelings of true happiness, moments of pure bliss and gratitude. Never before was there a time in my life that I have been so happy, so content and so full of inner peace than in this year! 

This inner journey was way more than just finding myself. 
It was an end to my inner separation, of the rational and the other side. We all have these two sides inside of us. It’s not about condemning one side, It’s about balancing them.

Balance is the Goal

I am still rational but now I am equally the other spiritual side. 
I will still do business, but now it will be meaningful business making.
I am still practical, but now I am a practical dreamer of a better world.
I want to close this post with a statement I wrote down before I started my Master last year: 

Awakening Experiment 11 Chris White

“I believe by the end of my own Master degree I may not have a real degree and I may not have learned “valuable” business concepts, but I believe I will have learned so much more about myself, that no other university on earth can offer me.“

So what do you think? Take a moment – Was it worth it? Do you think what I did can pay me back in some form? Do you think our education system should change in some way? Feel free to leave a comment. And once you formed your own opinion I encourage you to read the first comment below this post where you’ll find my personal answer to these questions. =)

    Spoiler – Here are my answers:
    If I now think about whether doing my own Master was worth it or whether it can pay me back, I really have to laugh that there was a time I seriously raised this question once. Because In this one year, I’ve learned and seen more than in at least 5 years of my life before. I lived basically 11 totally different life’s, I was constantly out of my comfort zone and I’ve grown so much that I can only tell you, it was hands down the best thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. And because I know how Big this was for me, I want to inspire people to face their other side more too. I believe If we want to turn out the real pathfinders of the future, if we want to address the world’s biggest issues, if we want to save this beautiful planet we call mother earth, we need to change our education systems, face our other sides more and become more balanced.
    And because I believe change always starts with yourself, I made this my mission in this life now. I decided to give myself one year to turn this whole Master into a meaningful business, into something that impacts many more rational sided people all around the world and guide them to their true nature. Life is so beautiful once you live with your two sides in balance. I know this now and many more should feel that too. This is just the beginning. The journey has only just begun. =)
