A philosopher of life, Yossi Ghinsberg is a man of passion, fixed resolve and a connector of people. He believes that nothing promotes growth more than an unexpected experience and unconventional thinking. In these times of great challenge and change, his "Power to Survive" message is timely.

Ghinsberg was born and raised in Israel and served three years in the Israeli navy on the Red Sea. During this time, he befriended the Bedouins of the Sinai Desert whose wholesome philosophy and nomadic lifestyle greatly influenced his life's path.

He studied Jewish Philosophy and Business Administration at Tel Aviv University, followed by a comprehensive study of the 'Kabala' in authentic environments. A truth seeker by an inner calling, Ghinsberg continues to study the religions and philosophies of the past and present - including the Ancients, the Classics, Eastern, Contemporary and the Shamanic path.

Ten years after almost losing his life in the Amazon, he returned to the river valley that was the site of his remarkable adventure and made it his home. During this period, he was instrumental in the creation and construction of Chalalan, a model eco-tourism village that inspires the Amazon basin and the world to this day. His work with indigenous Amazon tribes contributed to the creation of the Madidi National Park, the largest biosphere conservation belt in the Amazon.

The next phase of his life was dedicated to the treatment, rehabilitation and reintegration of opiate addicts throughout the world as Vice President of The Center for Investigation & Treatment of Addiction (CITA). Ghinsberg promoted a new approach to the treatment of opiate addiction, establishing 12 treatment and research centers around the world from Mexico to China. He also founded 'The Alma Libre Foundation' based in Australia, dedicated to assisting opiate addicts in their re-integration to society.

Since that time he has initiated several different business ventures and published two books and two albums of original music. He has been involved in grassroots efforts for reconciliation and healing in the Middle East.

Today he is the founder of a new interior and landscape design label "collecteco" which represents his never ending roaming of the planet, his commitment to ecology, his connection to nature and his respect for indigenous cultures.



'Jungle' is more than a survival story—it's a journey into the heart of human resilience. Throughout his ordeal, Yossi discovered an inner strength that even he didn't know he possessed. He learned the true value of hope and the immense power of determination. These lessons translate beyond the confines of the Amazon, proving applicable and transformative in our daily lives and professional landscapes. The story invites readers to reflect on their own resilience, adaptability, and strength in the face of adversity.



Alone, with no food, supplies, or weapons, Yossi Ghinsberg was lost in the Amazon for twenty-eight days. Against all odds, he survived, and his story became the international bestseller Jungle. Now, in Laws of the Jungle, Ghinsberg shares the profound truths the treacherous Amazon taught him. These nine revelations inspire personal consciousness and an evolved perspective on our nature as humans and as beasts.
