Yossi Ghinsberg travels all over the world, sharing his survival wisdoms. Ten seconds on his website and you are able to download his appearance on Larry King and a host of American chat shows. It’s no wonder, he’s inspirational, and a truly gripping storyteller. I certainly didn’t feel like I was getting the Anthony Robbins motivational schtick, but after our chat I felt acutely aware of that ancient survival part of myself. Damn, maybe I could survive without my makeup bag and wonderbra.

Yossi credits his ability to survive in incredible adversity to his primal connection with his survival wisdom – something he credits all of us with in adverse and ‘life’ threatening situations. Interestingly, this place is where Yossi has uncovered his greatest spiritual revelations.
