Allan LokosOn Christmas Day, 2012, Allan Lokos escaped from a crashed and burning plane on Myanmar with severe burns over 33% of his body.  He was not expected to survive, but he not only lived, he has written a book about the crash, his miraculous surThrough the Flamesvival, and the process of healing. Details from the crash and the immediate aftermath are supplied by his wife Susanna, who was also injured in the crash, though not as severely.

In addition to some wonderful medical professionals, Lokos credits his years of meditative practice as a major contributing factor to both his survival and his healing. "Through the Flames: Overcoming Disaster Through Compassion, Patience, and Determination" is an inspiring tale of heroism and persistence. 

Lokos is the founder of the Community Meditation Center in NYC and was a guest on Writers' Voices previously with his book "Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living."
