Sam Morris is the founder of Zen Warrior Training®. In 1999, just after leading a bicycling trip for nine teenagers across the United States, Sam was in a car accident caused by a drunk driver which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Years of struggle from his condition forced him to experience over a dozen surgeries and to lie down for over three years, two of which were in hospitals. Determined to not become the victim of his circumstances, Sam learned and created a system of mental and physical training based in Zen philosophy, meditation and somatic disciplines that healed his mind and body and brought him more vitality and clarity than he had before his injury. He created Zen Warrior Training as a means by which to share what he has learned with the world.
Zen Warrior Training is a personal development program dedicated to helping people to optimize their bodies and minds to achieve self-mastery. Zen Warrior Training treats each challenge as an opportunity. When we conquer our challenges, we develop power, vitality, influence and a greater connection to our authentic selves. Each individual’s potential is limited primarily by his or her own belief systems, attitude and cultural imprinting. When these self-limiting beliefs are exposed by a compassionate and enlightened guide, we can live our lives more fully and more empowered in each moment. The Zen Warrior belief is that true success is the result of a disciplined mind, a balanced personal life, healthy relationships and a dedication to work.
Sam’s “Let Nothing Stop You” keynote is a story of triumph over tragedy that leaves audiences with principles that they can immediately apply so that they can optimize their own lives. His humor, energy and deep belief in each individual’s potential is infectious. Sam believes that the challenges and disruptions people face are the perfect opportunities to find out what they’re made of.
