Prince “P.J.” Daniels, Jr. is a nationally recognized author, motivational speaker, and consultant in the areas of mindfulness and meditation. His life has been spent understanding, practicing and teaching the benefits of balancing one’s power and peace. Daniels’ personal story is one of determination and commitment to excellence.
His career started as a walk-on, where he earned a scholarship to Georgia Tech after the 2002 season, an extraordinary achievement in itself. He then went on to become a two-time all-conference tailback, and the fourth-leading rusher in Georgia Tech football history, with 3,300 yards. A two-time Academic All-ACC selection, Daniels played in the 2004 Humanitarian Bowl where he ran for a still existing NCAA bowl game record of 311 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was drafted by the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens in 2006 and his career ended prematurely as a result of injuries in 2009.
After this life-altering experience, Daniels was led to a monastic life centered on meditation. The truth that he uncovered during his time at the monastery changed his life course and led him to be of service in helping others to also uncover the universal truths available to all through meditation. He aspires to encourage people all ages, worldwide, to practice mindfulness as a means for confronting their fears, pursuing their dreams, finding their balance of power and peace, and enhancing their overall well-being.
