Allan Lokos

Through the Flames

episodes 33 and 34

 

Most people get frustrated throughout the day—an unwanted assignment at work, a leaky sink at home. But there are some experiences that forever put those things in perspective. 

Our guest in Episode 33, Allan Lokos, survived a plane crash in Myanmar on Christmas Day in 2012. Four doctors believed he would not live, but after a mighty struggle to endure, he's now regained much of the life he knew before the crash. Hear Allan explain the seemingly impossible road he took to get back and why his years of practicing and teaching meditation were key to his ability to persevere.

You can also read his story in the new book Through the Flames: Overcoming Disaster Through Compassion, Patience, and Determination.
