Becoming a Peaceful Warrior with Dan Millman By Dr. Paula Joyce
Kids enjoy sitting around the campfire listening to their parents or counselors tell stories designed to teach or scare them. This ancient tradition of storytelling grew out of a time when books did not exist and the tribal elders told stories to pass on the culture, wisdom, history, values and practices of their people. The skill of storytelling, although originally oral and improvised, has expanded to include writing stories of fiction. Dan Millman’s Peaceful Warrior saga is in the tradition of oral storytelling with the purpose of passing on sacred wisdom, knowledge and values, most specifically–how to live a life. As every good teacher knows, people learn best through stories that help connect hearts and minds. Dan is a masterful teacher taking us on a journey toward awakening. The path of the Peaceful Warrior is one of learning to live with a peaceful heart and a warrior’s spirit. Please join us Thursday to learn how to become a peaceful warrior.
