Pedram Shojai is a former Taoist monk and an accomplished physician of Chinese medicine. He is an acclaimed author with his latest book The Urban Monk hitting shelves in early February. He is the founder of Well.org, an author, and most recently a documentary filmmaker. After studying biology at UCLA he had a series of profound mystical experiences that drew him to the Eastern esoteric arts.

Pedram has studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga, Meditation, and medicine diligently for the past 20 years, and aims to help people wake up from their zombie haze and live their lives fully.
