Tommy Stoffel

In 2005, Tommy Stoffel woke up in the psychiatric ward of his local hospital following a self-dialed 911 call. He knew something was wrong but couldn’t quite believe he ended up here. Denial quickly turned to realization as he met fellow humans all suffering from some form of mental overload. Unfortunately, the therapy prescribed only masked symptoms and didn’t address the core issue. Ancient mindfulness and compassionate psychology teachings began shedding light on the real, underlying problem. Drawing from this wisdom, he began teaching workshops for other struggling friends and family out of his living room. Eventually, these developed into lessons and courses, which were taken offroad, where people could release tension and get more in tune with their authentic, vibrant selves. Tommy is the founder of Zen 4-Wheelers and leads outings on a regular basis. He’s also a manager in a long-running corporate career and a co-host and executive producer of the Offroad Monks documentary.
