What is MeDi Clown Academy

MeDi, from medicina (latin)
the art of healing – transcending suffering and restoring wholeness

MeDi Clown Academy is an integral approach to healing, well-being and life-long learning; bringing joy, love and laughter into daily living, in healthcare, education or corporate environments.

Throughout centuries, clowning is expressed through the jester, fool, shaman, Komali, Vedushka, or Vikatakavi and has always played a key role in healing individuals, communities and entire societies.

The role of the MeDi Clown, is to make a heart connection with people of all ages and backgrounds, bringing joy and hope into lives, lightening up situations, stimulating play and laughter to ease stressful, difficult or painful circumstances.

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and and behold, service was joy.
