Nick Stein never aspired to become a public speaker, but that all changed in 2011 when his cell phone rang with an unexpected request. Would he like to come to Washington to talk to over 500 cops at the DC Convention Center at the annual GOV/SEC convention? ​From that first gig on, Stein's been a much sought after keynoter at law enforcement conferences, think tank meetings and universities. He's also talked at grade schools and film schools, as well as teaching mindfulness to folks in the criminal justice system, including cops, EMTs, ER nurses, prosecutors and social workers. Today he offers 2 different talks - Border Wars: The Ground Truth and My Own Border Wars: A Journey from Mayhem to Mindfulness. The first is a media-rich, action packed discussion about the realities of border security, and the latter is an inspiring tale of Nick's healing through the power of Mindfulness Meditation. Click on the links below for more details...
