Yossi Ghinsberg’s audiences leave with an understanding of the nature of survival and how life is to be celebrated and taken to the highest level.
“The problem with life may be that it is not tough enough. When a moment of real struggle emerges, we naturally tap into our survival resources and find ourselves ready to fight. It is the day to day mundane problems that grind us.”
How do we rise to the challenge of living every day of our life as if it is our last? How can we bring radiating intensity to our thoughts, words and actions? Yossi ventured the world as a backpacker traveling for 2 years mainly in South America. Yossi returned to the Amazon to initiate, “The Chalalan Project” proving that the best strategy to conserve bio-diversity is sustainable development in cooperation with indigenous forest dwellers.
Chalalan is one of the most celebrated Eco-Tourism resorts in the Amazon.
The projects Yossi initiated in the Bolivian rainforest helped to form the biggest nature reserve in the Amazon, known as The Madidi National Park. His work on the protection of intellectual properties and sustainable development of the Amazon won him international acclaim from such organizations as Conservation International, the World Resources Institute and The Inter-American Development Bank.
Yossi promoted a new approach to treatment of opiate addiction, establishing 12 treatment and research centers around the world from Mexico to China. Yossi founded ‘The Alma Libre Foundation’ based in Australia, dedicated to assisting opiate addicts in their re-integration to society. Yossi’s passion is directed at exploring remote corners of the planet, guided solely by the atlas and his own personal desire for places of inspiration. His travels have brought him to the islands of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar, to the sub-continents of India and China.
