What are your source of inspiration?
When it comes to laughter, my greatest source of inspiration is the founder of Laughter Yoga itself. Dr.Madan Kataria. While in India, I I had the privilege to be trained by him directly and be a direct witness of his charisma, profound humility and so generous devotion to our world.
Because of their courage and wisdom to embrace their calling and visions, the following leaders have also inspired me to think outside the box, dare to poke and to provoke, open my eyes to see behind the tangible world and furthermore be the visionary man that I am today:
- The English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer Charlie Chaplin (for his Joie de vivre and his mastery to touch people with his slapstick humor that covers the full spectrum of life and laughter)
- The Doctor clown and humanist Patch Adams (for his vision of unity, community and health through laughter as an integrative medicine and universal healing language)
- The philosopher and teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti ( for his ability to view life from the consciousness of the unknown)
- The athlete and peaceful warrior Dan Millman (for his wisdom to show the magic and extraordinary behind every ordinary moment)
