“I believe that we live at a very crucial
moment in humanity's transformation and I want you to move beyond
the old paradigm and discover your power, your freedom.
I believe we are at a point of such
transformation that we can no longer wait for someone else, or
something else. I believe that we are creators and that everyone
here is equal and part of that creation. I believe that Love
doesn't live somewhere outside, that the Divine, meaning intelligence,
freedom, is everywhere. You, me, we are connected.
I believe that we have to put things
into practice. We can’t just sit and watch television or watch
life, or watch a relationship and hope it gets better or wait
for it to change.
I challenge you to step away from the
sofa, where it is comfortable to watch TV, and to participate.
It is a wonderful thing when we realize that we have this power,
which is not of the ego, but is wisdom.”
Tony Samara, author of ‘Shaman’s Wisdom,’ ‘From
the Heart,’ ‘Different Yet the Same,’ and ‘Deeper than Words’ was
born in England, grew up in Egypt and also in Norway where he discovered
the “Zen Buddhist philosophy”.
This discovery eventually led him to the “Mount Baldy Zen Center
in California, USA” where he learned the spiritual teachings of “Kyozan
Joshu Sasaki.” He had curiosity to explore further the essence of
spirituality and thus went to live and learn with shamanic communities
around the globe including a period of time spent with some highly
influential shamans in the Amazon River region and the Andes Mountains.
Now people from all over the world visit Tony Samara to take spiritual
guidance and experience being in his presence.
His main countries of activity are in Europe yet with the assistance
of the Internet is attracting a Global audience through frequent
online interviews and live satsangs.
His function is as a Spiritual Teacher who encourages all to lead
their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution
of human consciousness.
The completely natural state of joy and wisdom experienced as the
heart opens to life is the remarkable path he expounds. The path
that is free for everyone to experience.
Verbal dialogue is not the essence of his teachings,
but he explains in a direct and simple way that everyone can understand
how each individual can practically integrate greater acceptance,
peace and joy into their daily lives.
Tony teaches with humour, humility and with infinite
patience, empowering the individual with courage, trust and inner
strength to continue on this journey back into wholeness, a path
that leads towards real freedom.
Like many spiritual teachers, Tony Samara is concerned
with practical inner work and liberation. He teaches by personal
example and instruction, guiding the seeker to realise bliss here
and now, through growing spiritual awareness rather than mental effort.
"Conscious evolution is ultimate
freedom. Overcoming the fear of what lies ahead, by illuminating
the spiritual dimension within our nature, is awakening to the
splendour of our hearts.
It is said that the mind clarifies matters
and reveals truth, but, in fact, it creates confusion for the
heart. True reality dwells in its natural center — the heart:
the heart is the path to self-realization.
The totally natural state
of joy and wisdom experienced as the heart opens to the truth,
is the remarkable state of being, free for all to experience."
Tony Samara is a mirror of what is possible, a
shining reminder of the continuous possibility of being human.
Tony also encourages a balanced vegetarian diet
which includes organic products that are full of life force.
