Nicholas Stein, Series Producer of nearly 60 episodes of National Geographic Television’s series, “Border Wars,” can attest to the impact of human misery. Stein personally chronicled the unspeakable suffering of illegal migrants, coerced drug smugglers, violent crime victims, and burnt out federal law enforcement officers. Over time, the combat-related stress of shooting “Border Wars,” took a psychological toll on Stein’s personal resiliency, as he struggled with his own post traumatic demons and unseen wounds.

His astonishing journey of transformation, from war zone filmmaker to mindfulness meditation teacher, allows him to speak about real and viable steps to easing personal suffering and creating lasting personal resiliency.

Using clips and photos, Stein’s unique story will inspire audiences and teach them how to navigate  their own “border zones” of personal suffering. From mayhem to mindfulness, his story has a powerful and universal appeal.
