Join Couchsurfing to see Kristian’s full profile.
Hello, everyone! My name is Kristian. I am a former yogic monk. Now I do art and travel around Mexico. My main interests are philosophy, art, and spirituality. I also really don't like to make a written description of myself...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because I like interesting people and I am not a big fan of hotels and hostels. Also, it is very comfortable and good financially. Writers are usually poor...
Music, Movies, and Books
Mostly I listen to classical music. My favorite composers are Rachmaninoff, Musorgsky, Chopin, Grieg, Debussy. But I also like some Russian bands – Сплин, Гражданская Оборона, Кровосток, and I like Led Zeppelin very much and hard rock of the 70s as well, like Deep Purple, Pink Floyd.. also I like Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
My favorite movies are conceptual and strong ones. If I highlighted a couple of them – it would be Dogville by Lars von Trier, Dark Knight by Christopher Nolan, and Joker by Todd Phillips.
It's not very easy to talk about my favorite books... Mostly I like Russian writers, especially modern ones, like Sorokin and Pelevin. Also, I like Dovlatov very much. I would say that I "like" a little bit of everything – Dostoevsky, Kafka, Chehov, Hesse...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have left my country to become a monk, I was closed without freedom in a psychiatric hospital, I was sitting in a migration jail in Mexico.
Teach, Learn, Share
I mostly learn from my own thinkings, but usually I like to learn everything from interesting people.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can teach art (conceptually, philophically, and practically – guitar, writing, poetry..) and also yoga (not only as physical exercise, but as philosophy and way of life).
Also I believe I am an interesting interlocutor.
