Sam Morris is the founder of Zen Warrior Training. In 1999, at the age of twenty-four and 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 paraplegic. Years of complications from his injury forced him to experience over a dozen surgeries and to become bedridden for a total of 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 his relationship to his body, ultimately bringing 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 about the power of our minds to create the conditions of our lives 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, the largest producer of entrepreneurial video and audio content.
Sam has led meditation and breathwork workshops at the past two No Barriers Summits and will be leading them again this year.
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.
