Sam Spiro (AKA Sam Zen) is a journalist and writer with more than 23 years’ experience living in Hong Kong and Asia. She arrived in the SAR in 1996, having deferred for a year her place on a Masters in International Journalism in London. She never went back, deciding to make journalism and editing her career in Hong Kong instead. Since the age of seven, when she had an “interesting” energy experience in her grandma’s toilet in the UK, Sam has had a strong calling towards all things spiritual. In 2016, she decided to “blow up” her corporate life in Hong Kong to transform her inner world – a transformation that saw her retrain and qualify in several mainstream, and alternative, therapeutic and spiritual-healing techniques. Since then she has been travelling extensively across Asia and Australia. She has sat with Zen masters, energy-healing masters and more. Until finally she “woke up” to living a conscious lifestyle. Today, she spends her time travelling, working, writing her book and living with her partner, a conscious filmmaker, between Hong Kong, India, Bali and Australia. When not finding soul-inspiring people and events to report on, she is busy offering her online Intuitive Love Activation Transformational Coaching Sessions.
