Dan Millman - Peaceful Heart, Warrior Spirit Dropping In with Omega Institute

    • Society & Culture

When Dan Millman was teaching a martial arts course at Oberlin College, he coined the phrase that now graces the cover of his spiritual classic, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. In teaching the class and writing the book, Dan drew on leaders like Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr., well-known people who had a peaceful heart but, at times, needed to show a warrior spirit.
Since then, he has come to see everyone as peaceful warriors in training, because we’re all seeking that sense of equanimity amidst the chaos.
Dan talks with Omega digital media director Cali Alpert about the wisdom of his mentors, why he knew he needed to become a teacher, and some of the key lessons he's taught.
This episode is part of Season 4 of Omega’s award-winning podcast, Dropping In. Join us for intimate conversations with some of Omega's trailblazing spiritual teachers, thought leaders, and social visionaries, to explore the many ways to awaken the best in the human spirit.
