Sam Chase asks you to pay attention during his opening talk at TEDxNYU, deftly exploring what it means to be truly mindful and how every one of us can incorporate the practice into our lives. Sam Chase designs and delivers
programs in mindfulness, yoga and
resilience for organizations nationwide.
He specializes in working with communities that serve in high-stress circumstances. He has developed programs for world leaders at the United Nations, service members in the National Guard, medical students at Columbia University, educators at the New York City Department of Education, and the over 1000 yoga teachers he has
trained throughout the last decade.
His role as an interpreter and bridge builder in the conversation between
Eastern contemplative traditions and Western scientific research led to the 2015 publication of the book Yoga & The Pursuit of Happiness, a down-to-earth guide to the philosophy and science behind yoga and meditation.
Sam holds a master’s degree from
Harvard, and certificates in Yoga and
in Positive Psychology from Kripalu,
where he currently serves as the Lead Facilitator for RISE, Kripalu’s evidence based resilience training program. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
