Dan Millman's Way of the Peaceful Warrior has become one of the most beloved spiritual sagas of our time. Shared among friends and families, this two million-copy word-of-mouth bestseller has inspired men and women of all ages in twenty languages worldwide.
After 18 years, Millman's story is making it to the big screen. Written and directed by Victor Salva, Peaceful Warrior stars Nick Nolte (Hotel Rwanda, U Turn), Scott Mechlowicz (Eurotrip, Mean Creek), Amy Smart (Just Friends, The Butterfly Effect), and Ashton Holmes (A History of Violence).
Despite his success, college student and world-champion athlete Dan Millman (played by Scott Mechlowicz) is haunted by a feeling that something is missing from his life. Awakened one night by dark dreams, he wanders into an all-night gas station where a chance encounter with the enigmatic Socrates (Nick Nolte) starts Dan on a spiritual odyssey, which throws his perfect but shallow life into total disarray. With a unique blend of Eastern philosophy and Western training, Socrates' insight and wisdom help Dan recover from a devastating motorcycle accident and takes Dan on a journey that tests the limits of his mind, body, and spirit. Discovering that he has much to learn and even more to leave behind, Millman's story is a moving tale about the power of human will.
A classic tale, told with heart and humor, Millman speaks to the peaceful warrior in each of us and offers a chance to rediscover life's larger meaning and purpose. Journey with Dan on the peaceful warrior's path to unreasonable happiness. Find out for yourself why this book changes lives.
