Dan Millman Bio

Dan Millman is a former world-champion gymnast, Stanford coach, martial arts instructor, and college professor. After half a lifetime exploring the heart of various wisdom traditions, he has dedicated his life to bringing greater clarity, purpose and perspective to men and women from all walks of life. His thirteen books, including Way of the Peaceful Warrior, The Life You Were Born to Live, No Ordinary Moments, The Laws of Spirit and the Journeys of Socrates, have inspired millions of readers in 29 languages. Dan Millman speaks worldwide, presenting practical ways to live with a peaceful heart and warrior spirit, and has influenced leaders in the fields of health, psychology, education, business, sports, and the arts. Married for 30 years, he has three grown daughters and two grandsons.

In March 2007, Dan's best-selling autobiographical novel, Way of the Peaceful Warrior was released nationwide as a major motion picture.

Like his readership, Dan Millman's audiences over the past 25 years range from business organizations to university students and faculty, to churches, sports teams, and holistic organizations, medical, dental, and chiropractic conventions, men's gatherings, and a variety of other venues.

The nature of his work encompasses areas such as "life-education," enhanced wellness, stress release, higher awareness and perspective -- essentially, how to live a more meaningful and purposeful life in the real world -- keeping one's head in the clouds and feet on the ground.

He brings a practical, light-hearted approach to the challenges of everyday life at work and at home. Typical responses to presentations include, "Dan makes sense." "He's down to earth." "I didn't know he was so funny!" And "I can actually apply this information to my life." His presentations range from 20-minute keynotes to full-day and weekend presentations, to week-long intensive trainings.

Dan never lets the title of a talk interfere with what he has to say. That is, he customizes his presentations to suit each audience. However, a sample of some speaking points and talk descriptions are available on request.

His work has direct, practical applications in everyday life, at work and at home. He takes listeners beyond lofty philosophy, abstract concepts, and idealistic notions to remind listeners of what they "already know on deeper levels but might have forgotten" -- for real-world outcomes.
