Tony Samara, author of Shaman’s Wisdom, From the Heart, Different Yet the Same, and Deeper than Words, was born in England and grew up in Egypt and Norway, where he discovered the Zen Buddhist philosophy. This discovery led him to the Mount Baldy Zen Center in California, where he learned the spiritual teachings of Kyozan Joshu Sasaki. He explored further the essence of spirituality and thus went to live and learn with shamanic communities around the globe, including a period with some highly influential shamans in the Amazon River region and the Andes Mountains. Now people from all over the world visit Tony for spiritual guidance. He is active mainly in Europe but with the assistance of the Internet is attracting a global audience with frequent online interviews and live satsangs (gatherings where minds unite through music, meditation, and wisdom to experience a higher state of consciousness). As a spiritual teacher, Tony encourages all to lead their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution of human consciousness.
