Sah D’Simone is a spiritual guide, meditation teacher, transformational speaker, and bestselling author. He leads a heart-based healing movement rooted in tried-and-true techniques, pioneering a Spiritually Sassy approach in which joy and authenticity illuminate the path to enlightenment.
Born in Brazil, Sah immigrated to the US at age 16. By his early 20s, he had found great success in the fashion industry as cofounder and creative director of an international fashion magazine, and yet he was overwhelmed by addiction, depression, and anxiety. In 2012, he walked away from everything and began an intensive search for health and well-being.
In 2013, Sah embarked on a journey to Nepal, India, Thailand, and Indonesia to study with great spiritual masters such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo. Sah developed a revolutionary healing approach blending ancient Tantric Buddhism and modern contemplative psychotherapy, served with a twist of his trademark sass. He is also passionate about sharing his mission with the underserved, advocating for mental health and well-being in the LGBTQIA+ and POC communities.
Sah’s approach has helped enrich the lives of thousands through his teachings. He has shared the stage with Deepak Chopra, Yung Pueblo, Ruby Warrington, and Dan Harris. His first book, 5-Minute Daily Meditations, is an international bestseller, translated into Spanish, Chinese, and Dutch. He has been invited to speak at TEDx, and his client list includes Google, MoMA, Kanye West, Cannes Lions, American Express, the United Nations, New Balance, Bloomingdale’s, and Havas.
