About Me

My new Facebook page (about my art activities) : https://www.facebook.com/xaviergaillotart
And about my healing activities : https://www.facebook.com/XGaillot


Living my dreams and my desire, with respect of others. Foot on earth and head in the sky. I try to listen to this realty but to others too. Working on my mind is not separatable of working on my body. Nakedness is a way to contact nature.


Help me to develop my healing activities by "liking" me on Facebook, thanks by advance ! :-) CS permits me new connections between people, it permits to discover other ways of living, other ways of thinking, of eating, of breathing, etc.It permits to act concrete hospitality, to live real shared moments around a simple glass of beer, to understand that differences can be a real richness !How wonderful it is to discover that other people think that to Be is more important thant to have !that respecting Nature is a way to discover oneself ... and respect oneself ! and our planet !I enjoy and practice :- respect,- frankness,- simplicity,- hedonism (Hedonism group),- humanism,- no conformism (for example : Clothing optional group),- free mind and body,- try to change world ... for a better world, beginning with changing myself : Downshifting group.- wellness oriented : Epanews group (French wellness social network).I join labor unionism because world change quickly and I prefer to accompany change and try to help managers and, particularly, workers to change because we have to.I prefer to be more an actor than a spectator ;-)People died for freedom. I try to carry on what they began, modestly.I'm an easy going gay guy but there is no problem if you are lesbian or bisexual or trans ... or straight because I'm not straight'phobic ... and quite straight-friendly ... and quite sense of humor-friendly ;-) With me, there is no impossible question ... only those you don't ask for.


Here and now. Easy to write ... but so difficult but wonderful to live.
I am one among others.
I try to live naturally and to build my own way, with respect of others, nature and myself.
Be yourself if you do not attend to the life of others. Freedom is the most wonderful thing ... but the hardest to live !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


- I bring my part of humanity, simply.- Let's try to live together, to communicate and to better understand each other. For example, I created the Clothing optional group.


Here are below my main CS trip because I had often other contacts, meetings with other CSers / HCers in/from/coming to Nancy or for a drink, for example.(Naked Woofing)United States, Hawaii - 2007, October, 5 weeks Hosted in : Isle of You Hawaii Farm & Naturist Retreat (and 5 days in San Francisco at a friend home). Thanks a lot to Don who answered me on a CS group and tells me about this wonderful place I've never hear about before.I spent 1 day in San Francisco on coming and 4 days at return, for Halloween in SF ;-) (Woofing)Ireland - 2007, March, 10 daysTaking care of 12 goats, little village 60 km from Cork, hiking, out of trails with rain and wind Hosted by RELAX AND CHILL

Freedom, nature, open mind & body, nudity I enjoy :- nudism,- to be a nudist,- to live nude,- to be nude, About nudity : for me, it's a real way of living. It's a real contact with Nature, with my nature, with nature of human being. It's not a sexual thing. It's a way to be and not to have, a way to discover the real freedom : the freedom of body which can't be without freedom of soul, and vice versa.It's a philosophical way of living my own body in harmony with Nature. A way to feel wind, water, heat, cold, wood, mud, universe.I enjoy :- to be free,- to Be, simply,- meeting open minded people,- cooking for them,- eating with,- laughing,- speaking with,- staring at sky during the night,- good wine,- meditation- massage (californian style and energy)- good beer,- dancing,- reading books,- listen to silence,- bodypainting,- touch moon,- feel sun on my face,- looking for nothing,- shamanism,- holotropic breathing / breathwork,- ... Life !
