About Me

GIFTS

Please don't give gifts to me which contain sugar, milk, egg , fish, meat or alcohol. What I like very much: e.g. fennel or peppermint tea.

CURRENT MISSION

Managing to work something I really love. First step complete: Quit my job . Second step complete: Be open for every possibility. Third step: Focus on ONE thing and go deep: GTD and memory improvement.

ABOUT ME

I am a more calm and quiet guy. Sometimes a little bit too shy and too introverted. That is why I love Couchsurfing, Helpx and Hitchhiking so much. There is a need for me to extrovert and to open myself for people. And it makes my life so much richer to connect and share things with other people.

The most important thing in my life is Vipassana meditation. Since I discovered this technique in 2013 I practice daily, took some 10 day courses and also helped in some courses. It is about transforming my mind to become a better person. Being able to live a happy life and help others wherever possible.

I LIKE...

- The 6 hour day in Sweden
- The basic income idea
- Vipassana centers which only accept donations
- Openness
- Honestness
- Friendlyness
- Acceptance

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To become inspired from a big variety of great people. To get to know other perspectives, other ways of living and different ways of thinking.

FAVOURITE MOVIES

"Perdona si te llamo amor"
--> The day after I watched this movie I was sure about quitting my job. =) Such an inspiring, saying-yes-to-life-and-love movie.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Realized in a meditation retreat how lucky I am. Lucky because of all the people who supported me and still are doing so: my grandmother, my mother, my granduncle, my grandaunt, Frey.... I maybe would not have come in contact with vipassana meditation without your support. Thank you so much.
