Yet, despite his many successes, he was haunted by the feeling that something was missing. Awakened by dark dreams one night, Dan found himself at a gas station with an old man named Socrates, and his world was changed forever. Guided by this eccentric old warrior, and inspired by a young woman named Joy, Dan began a spiritual odyssey into realms of light and shadow, romance and mystery, toward a final confrontation that would deliver or destroy him.

From the Author
This, my first book, has a special place in my heart -- and in the hearts of my readers. It emerged from an intensive search lasting more than a decade. It blends autobiographical fact with flights of imagination to convey vivid reminders to my readers about life's promise and potential. Pablo Picasso once said that art is a lie that helps us to see the truth. I invite curious readers to visit the Q&A section at peacefulwarrior.com.
Way of the Peaceful Warrior serves as an introduction to the way, detailed in the numerous books that have followed over the years. Each of these books -- including titles like
No Ordinary Moments, The Laws of Spirit, and
The Four Purposes of Life -- presents another facet of the peaceful warrior's way -- an approach to living that I teach worldwide.
After my first book was finished, I didn't write another one for ten years -- until the intervention and influence of other mentors and life experiences provoked new writings that followed over the years.
