Publisher's Summary

This is the second book in the Peaceful Warrior Saga. Neither a sequel nor prequel, this adventure takes place within the context of the original book, shedding new light on the path he was to travel, and would one day teach.

After a period of training with the man he calls Socrates, Dan Millman is sent away by his old mentor to apply what he has learned to everyday life.

Struggling with personal failure and growing disillusion, Dan sets out on a worldwide quest to rediscover the sense of clarity, meaning, and purpose he found with Socrates. Then, a long-forgotten memory drives Dan to seek a mysterious woman shaman in Hawaii. She is the gateway to all his hopes and fears - and the only one who can prepare him for what may follow.

Deep in a rain forest on the island of Molokai, Dan encounters mortal challenges, vivid characters, and startling revelations as he ascends the peaceful warrior's path toward the light that shines at the heart of creation. In this compelling tale, the author breathes new life into ancient wisdom and reminds us that all our journeys are sacred, and all our lives an adventure.

Critic Reviews

"Few people live and express the spirit of the peaceful warrior as eloquently as Dan Millman. His books are true teaching stories - entertaining and entrancing, wise and awakening." (Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., professor of psychiatry, University of California, Irvine, and author of The Spirit of Shamanism)

Life changing

Would you listen to Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior again? Why?

Yes. Very inspiring and touching book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I could feel the energy and emotions of what Dan went through. His teaching really felt in my heart. I was laughing and crying at certain moments. It made me reflect back on ,y life and got answers by myself on things I need to do to improve and move on. I have better sense now and more refined purpose in life.

Something magical about Dan...

An extremely moving story, a great listen and I'm on my third already.

I feel this is almost as good as Way of the Peaceful Warrior, the latter being a closer to "true" story, but frankly, it feels just as real.

Like Way of the Peaceful Warrior, it's 100% uplifting and inspiring, with no dark corners.

Perfect for people interested in love.

Love this book.. very inspiring

the content, pacing and insight this book provides are inspiring. I highly recommend it. it's right up there with the alchemists and Palestine prophesy in my view

Not as good as Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, it is a great story on a variety of levels.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I was actually kind of pissed off when Dan essentially discredited this story and the one before in the prologue. Part of the enjoyment for me was the blurring of reality and fiction, to start out and say this is all a work of fiction and by the way so was my other book was very disheartening. I highly recommend that authors leave this determination up to the readers NOT start out by apologizing?

What three words best describe Dan Millman’s voice?

Sometimes authors are good writers but their vocal skills are lacking, Dan is good at both and I enjoyed his voice, inflection, tone, etc. In his first book, I felt that he brought the story to life but in this one I felt his disclaimer upfront hurt the authentic feeling from the onset.

Do you think Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really, I was hoping this would have been a stronger follow up to "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior" which was excellent, moving, authentic, and yes I did get lost in the book and even believing therein for extended periods.

Any additional comments?

Good book, well worth my time and purchase but just not as good as the first.

Great follow up.

Even though I connected more with Socrates, this story and it’s lessons are perfect for when one has elevated themselves past the basic self.
Thus making this a perfect sequel for someone ready for the next lessons, all tied up in a wonderful story.
