      INNER JOY : FROM GENETIC TO HAPPY GENETICS Lecture with Alex Sternick.

      INNER JOY : FROM GENETIC TO HAPPY GENETICS A lecture with Alex Sternick, art therapist (Israel).You can find some people who are always happy and joyful enjoying their inner laughter and happiness. On top of  that, you can also meet people that have all the reasons to be happy (they are wealthy, have a good job and given the right cards) but they seem to be complaining  about the hardship of  life and feel very lonely.Is it connected to the country in which they live or up to its laws and government? Or maybe to their property ? Is there any link to the weather in different places in the world? Or maybe the difference is due to the fact that some people are given the right cards and some people not?Is Happiness or Misery defined by our genes? We are born with them and bound to live with them till our last day? Or else it is something that can be changed though life circumstances and even because of that?After discussing  this topics we will watch the documentary film HAPPY that shows the most “hot” topic today, Positive Psychology. The film reviews different stories of different people and communities all over the world and focuses on the small things which add Happiness, Inner Laugh and Joy to Life, even also in times of Crisis and Adversity. Who is Alex Sternick ? Alex Sternick, BSc.in Clinical Nutrition, is an expert and internationally recognized practitioner of the Art of Nonsense and Laughter Therapy.

Then he practiced in Ethiopia as a laughter therapist in Mother’s Mission and a nutritionist with SaveTheChildren USA. These experiences inspired him to bring laughter yoga to Israel. In 2004, he started the first laughter club in Jerusalem and brought the leading experts to the country, including Dr. Madan Kataria and World Laughter Master Belachew Girma to run workshops. Alex has also worked with Israelis and Arabs in an attempt to bring these diverse groups together through laughter and nonsense.
