During his junior year at the University of California, Dan Millman first stumbled upon his mentor (nicknamed Socrates) at an all-night gas station. At the time, Millman hoped to become a world-champion gymnast. “To survive the lessons ahead, you’re going to need far more energy than ever before,” Socrates warned him that night. “You must cleanse your body of tension, free your mind of stagnant knowledge, and open your heart to the energy of true emotion.”
In Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives The lessons of Socrates help Dan drop his preconceived notions and begin to discover the value of “being conscious over being smart, and strength in spirit over strength in body.” It is an inspiring story of growth, courage and rebirth and promising to give you a lot of food for thought on how you life your own life.
