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.
Sam is a keynote speaker, Zen Warrior Training workshop facilitator and individual and group life coach. He has been featured in numerous magazines, podcasts and radio shows and has been a regular guest on Business Rockstars.
Sam resides in Los Angeles with his wife Meghan, founder of Amba Yoga, and their two dogs. He is committed to serving humanity through helping individuals strengthen their awareness of their personal power.
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.
Zen Warrior Training workshops and coaching sessions are customized to each organization or individual and help both individuals and teams operate in a way that will maximize their potential.
Zen Warrior Training coaching sessions involve a system of meditation, awareness training and breath work which help you to:
1. Seize the Moment
Claim your most powerful asset – your presence. Learn to see yourself deeply from within. Every moment is exactly what you make of it, nothing more, nothing less.
2. Own Your Power
Deepen your ability to conquer challenges. Acknowledge any self-limiting beliefs that have been holding you back and take directed action to change those beliefs and replace them with healthier ones.
3. Let Nothing Stop You
Find the power of resilience that is within you. See that no matter what the circumstances of your life are, that you have the power to move gracefully through them.
4. Live at Your Edge
Live your life as an adventure, always open to new experiences. Treat every moment as a new opportunity.
5. Honor Your Truth
Deepen your appreciation for what your inner voice and intuition is showing you. Learn to see the ego for what it is, a limited understanding of yourself, and learn to move beyond ego consciousness to achieve greater success.
6. Free Your Mind
Let go of the burdens of the past and anxiety of the future so that your mind can be free to live and create in the moment. Harness your mind’s focus so that you can experience deep clarity and unrestricted vitality.
7. Catalyze Change
See that you are the creator of your experience and that the changes you wish to make in yourself and the world are possible by acknowledging and using your true power.
