Call in to speak with the host
Overcoming health challenges. On November 22, Samuel was born with spina bifida, a congenital disease affecting the spine’s development, resulting in problems with his kidneys, feet, eyes, and heart. In the first 21 years of his life, Sam had undergone over 25 surgeries, from head to toe.
Devoted to spiritual life at an early age. As a result of all of his health, academic, and social woes at a young age, Samuel sought out spiritual answers to Life and became a licensed minister of the Christian gospel at the ripe age of 12 years old. He preached his first sermon on his Mom’s birthday in 1980.
Beyond scholarship. In his early twenties, Samuel had a spiritual crisis and sought deeper answers to Life’s questions. He settled on a life in academia and, at one point, disavowed a spiritual life completely, settling for a more “dialectical materialist” approach to Life. However, his gnawing questions and concerns didn’t disappear. He pressed on, even traveling as far as India, to find answers.
He is an award-winning playwright and teacher of writing. He is also a published and anthologized poet, essayist and writes consistently for local, regional and global markets like aol.com and tarot.com, mostly on astrological themes. Samuel also has done his part to bridge the digital divide by working or volunteering as a technology trainer of inner-city youth, adults and families since 1998. <> website: http://www.return2thesource.net and chck out http://astrologycareerinstitute.return2thesource.net/home.html
