"When I first read Way of the PW it touched and spoke to my heart in a beautiful way. I experienced Dan’s words conveying deeply to my inner knowing and read the book about 8/9 times."

- Paul Witcomb

"The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" changed my life forever…"

- John Sullivan

"I've read this book possibly 6-7 times across 40 years of time. It has inspired my lifestyle. I have never achieved a path of truly peaceful existence, yet keep coming back to that theme as the best way to live my life. Every time I read this book, there is some aspect that is more meaningful to me than some previous time." 

- Gene Shafer
