Inspire, be and get inspired.
Spontaneous and curious hypnotherapist and healer on the road, sometimes quiet, sometimes extremely social. My anthropologist soul loves to get to know different cultures and people. I wont add that "i consider myself as open minded" or "i like to travel" as it seems to be the norm on this website :)
Here's a little anecdote then: an old friend made a portrait of me with some pieces of the book Antigone (the Jean Anouilh version). As he strongly advised me to read it, I did, and could only be struck by the similarities between that character and me -the sense of wonder, the importance of justice we both share.
If you want to stay with me, I'll just ask you to contact me at least 2 days before and to include the words ''raspberry juice'' in your request. I am strongly interested in shamanism, psychology, yoga, meditation and altered states of consciousness in general as I believe that they can be one of the ways to a more conscious society. If all that interests you as well, don't hesitate to message me!
I love to give a chance to people I meet to discover hypnosis or to have a shamanic journey (no drugs are involved ;)) so if you host me this can be an opportunity for you to have a free session :)
Stay true to yourself, as integrity is all that really matters.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
"I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt."
Writing, meditation, trying to leave my comfort zone, art, partying, old houses, identity, squirrels, neurosciences, yoga, gender studies, stars, the universe.

To all that fortune, death, and danger dare

I'm willing to give a gold star anybody with a trick to lucid dream that actually works -actually I managed to have lucid dreams since then, but if you want to try, someone told me about drinking apple juice before going to bed. I guess you have nothing to lose.
