Hello, we're Christopher and Sara, husband and wife, personal development coaches, speakers, and founders of the Vegan Warrior Academy.
After embarking separately on a journey of self-discovery that took us half way across the world, we met while serving as Peace Corps volunteers in Tanzania, Africa. While living and working in small villages, we experienced both the dynamic pains and joys of the world, which led us to making a commitment to devote our lives to the consciousness evolution of humanity and the betterment of the planet and all sentient beings.
After returning home, we made the obvious first step and became vegan.
While becoming vegan was liberating, empowering, and life-changing for us, we hit a plateau...
Feelings of joy, contentment, and serenity were soon followed by frustration, overwhelming helplessness, and isolation. We desperately wanted to shake everyone awake to the atrocities of the world, but we found our message was frequently misunderstood and stifled.
We were left wondering, what's next? What's our purpose? How can we contribute to the movement and help liberate animals and this planet?
Something was missing...
We realized that the most effective way to accelerate the movement and make an impact in the world was to first embody and exemplify in ourselves whatever changes we wanted to see so we decided to go on a journey that led us even deeper inward.
After many years of internal reflection and professional training in the fields of personal development, herbal medicine, detoxification, whole food plant-based nutrition, energy healing, and leadership we founded The Vegan Warrior Academy in 2017.
We believe that everyone is born with their own set of unique gifts, talents, and skills that are meant to be expressed in a way that activates their soul, empowers others, and elevates the planet, yet through years of societal conditioning and pressure to conform these gifts become buried and limiting beliefs set in.
So we set out on a mission to support and empower vegans on their warrior journey by giving them the tools, resources, and practices to ignite their personal growth, shed limiting beliefs, activate their inner power, and uncover their unique gifts so they can become a powerful voice for the voiceless, and contribute to the world and the vegan movement in a meaningful way.
