Sam Chase — Happiness is Subjective, Practical Mindfulness Talk, Secondary Trauma, Acknowledgement vs Gratitude, and More (#105)

There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again.

– Rumi

Sam Chase designs and delivers programs in mindfulness, yoga and resilience for organizations nationwide. After studying Economics and English at Vanderbilt, he finished at the top of his class and went on to compete for the international Rhodes and Marshall scholarships. He won and then ultimately declined the award to pursue the work he continues today–exploring the science of the human mind and the tools that help people lead flourishing lives. He brings that study back to the real world through his work with organizations including the United Nations, the National Guard, Columbia Medical School, Brooklyn Hospital Center, The Department of Education, UBS, Bloomberg, American Express and numerous others.

Sam has facilitated the education of more than 1500 yoga and mindfulness teachers over the last decade, as a director, faculty and guest presenter in numerous teacher training programs. He is the author of Yoga & the Pursuit of Happiness, a book that bridges the ivory tower research and esoteric philosophy surrounding meditation in a down-to-earth style that helps everyday people build an accessible, transformative practice. He is certified to teach by the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, the largest yoga center in the nation, where he also holds a certificate in Positive Psychology. He received his Master’s Degree at Harvard University’s A.R.T. Institute.
