About Me

ABOUT ME

Namaste,
Vanakam (In tamil),

I joined first Hospitality Club in 2004 or 2005 then went to CouchSurfing in 2006 or7....and i heard that before those website and internet it was another platform to host people all over.

I am following my precise and accurate purpose of living having a meaningful life in what i do. In German it is called Weltanschuung, but i don't speak German (but i have a strong German accent...maybe past life!).
I don't do my best to be perfect....I Improvise, when we improvise any Impossible can be possible.
MY BIOGRAPHY:
https://positivepsychologynews.com/news/alex-sternick/2007010127633

An Entrepreneur in the Field of Laughter Therapy\Self Empowerment and Health Oriented Peace Activist. Originator of the Project GibberishWorldTour (Gibberish is the most universal language and the only one where we can't fight or argue, make plans or build nuclear weapons). I am a Life&Humor Coach helping people to elicit SELF ACCEPTANCE through Self-Clowning, and befriending and meeting with their Imperfections so to develop an unconditional Acceptance . i love to do faces- not only when i am a performer. I like to travel a lot thus meeting like-minded people from different cultures and laughing together. from 2004-2013 I did conduct Peace Oriented workshops among Jews and Arabs focusing on the boosting up of our Immune System. I was involved a lot for Laughter PeaceBuilding and Conflict Management and i work through Jews and Arabs(Palestinians or Jordanians) using the technique of Laughter Yoga. I train abroad the field of Gibberish Improivisation Therapy\"Playing with Nonsense"- i have covered 12countries since 2009 teaching those courses. Gibberish is my own baby, but you will never guess i speak Gibberish when i do that (it can be mistaken with some hungarian or any Gypsy Language).

You can watch here some of the artistic work with Gibberish&Authentic Acting-

Yes, I am an actor who is always asked "did you learn acting". I love coffee especially Ethiopian (I lived in Ethiopia on 2003-2004 while volunteering there as a Laughter Therpist in Mother Teresa's in Addis and working as a Nutritionist with SaveTheChildren) and i love to listen to Malian Music. Stephan Micus is my favourite musician because he breaks rules.
