In November of 1999, at the age of 24 and having just led an unsupported cycling trek across the United States with nine teenagers, Sam was in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. In an instant, he went from being an avid outdoorsman, athlete and Zen enthusiast to being paralyzed from the waist down.

Determined to not become the victim of his circumstances, Sam spent years learning from some of the world’s top experts in the fields of somatic healing, meditation, breath work and mind training. Bedridden for the better part of four years and hospitalized for over two years, Sam’s will to survive was tested on multiple occasions. Throughout it all, he developed a deep fascination with the power of the mind and body to overcome seemingly unconquerable obstacles. Friends and acquaintances frequently remarked on his resilient nature and the quality of his attitude and mindset. Being forced to experience such consistently unfavorable circumstances, and rise above them, cultivated the foundation of what later became Zen Warrior Training.

Zen Warrior Training trains high-performers including CEO’s, spiritual leaders and professional actors to go beyond their perceived limitations and turn any challenge into an opportunity. Sam trains his clients to move beyond their own unconscious, self-limiting perceptions and into an embodied experience of their authentic power, creating more fulfilling relationships, generating more income, and optimizing health with far less pressure and stress.

From Andy:

Do you know when you meet someone for the first time and after a few minutes, you feel like you’ve known them for years? That’s what it was like for me with Sam. Wise beyond his years, having had to deal with life challenges I hope I never have to, Sam brought an emotional and honest depth to our conversation. I especially like the conversation we get into in the second half of the podcast – about existential mental agility, flow, freedom, and the path he uses to get there.

By the way, if you’re interested in working with Sam privately, he offers a complimentary strategy session. To find out how to take advantage of this, apply at Sam’s website – www.zenwarriortraining.com.

Enjoy this one. I sure did!
