Turn your Tragedy into your Comedy

Humor as Self Development tool

If you are tired of the drama and you like to divorce it, come to this life-changing workshop. This workshop is to teach and remind how to use the divine gifts of sense of humor and laughter as an accessible tool to reach self-empowerment and inner communication. There is much healing in this work.

“First rule of true humor: Don’t try to be funny! Try to be you!”

This workshop is not to turn people into comedians (unless they want to) but to teach and remind them to use the divine gift of humor and laughter as a tool of intimate inner communication and full acceptance of their imperfection. This way they could in daily life transform the heavy parts to a lighter ones to carry. There is much healing in this work. These days there is a very expensive medicine against cancer that is made of the hormones that the body produces in 5 minutes of laughing.

In short, learn to have fun when the shit hits the fan! Life is too short!

Tamar, who became a standup comedian in the most difficult time of her life, will teach you from her experience how to use your hard times and sick mind in an acceptable funny way so you will enjoy your daily life no matter what!!

About Tamar Burger Star

Tamar Burger-Starobinetz is better known under her stage name: Tamar Burger Star.

She’s a multi-language stand-up comedian, life coach ,Trauma therapist , Theta healer, Theater director, Yoga laughter instructor and a mom. She performed in Berlin, London and Israel. You can see her regularly perform in the Comedy clubs in Amsterdam. Her motto is that humor and laughter is a “must have” tool in order to achieve high quality life and inner peace. Humor and laughter is part of the divine tool of creation to humans. A tool which get us closer to truth, and it can heal our body and soul. Humor is not about telling jokes or make people laugh. It is first an intimate way of getting inner communication, accepting ourselves for who we really are by setting judgments free. Good healthy Humor will let the soul and mind be playful like when we were born. For a fact: babies laugh 200 times more than adults!

Her comedy is a result of turning difficult situations in her real life to a great springboard. Unlike a few other stand-up comedians, Tamar belongs to a group of standup comedians that believe that if you use comedy to put someone down, you misuse the real purpose of comedy which should elevate and create closeness. There is nothing wrong with a bit of teasing as long as you keep the respect for yourself and each other differences. With using humor you can communicate better with the people around, accept them as they are without trying to change them and still stay close to oneself. Tamar sets on stage are mixed with her political views and the hard reality she comes from. She sincerely believes that good humor can help bringing peace to the world and break all boundaries.
