Description: Abdi's youth was colored by the struggles of being an immigrant and adjusting to the fast pace of New York City. He gravitated to drugs and violence as a way of coping, convinced that he'd either land in prison or in his grave. But after the death of several friends, Abdi realized he needed to change his life. He discovered the healer's path, becoming an acupuncturist and even training as a shaman. Yoga played a big role in his transformation, as well, as he describes so poignantly in the video.
