Today I get to chat with Pedram Shojai, author of the new book, The Urban Monk: Eastern Wisdom and Modern Hacks to…. He shares with me some of the wisdom he’s picked up over the years from series of profound mystical experiences that drew him into the Eastern esoteric arts.

Pedram received his Master’s in Oriental Medicine from Emperor’s College and then his OMD from the PanAmerican University. He’s studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga, Meditation, and medicine diligently for the past 20+ years and his passion is to travel the world and meet inspiring people who are making a difference in their communities.

Over the past few years, he’s written two books, produced two documentary films, and is working on a third, due out later this year. He is deeply involved in philanthropy and working with amazing people all over the world.
