Border Wars: From Mayhem to Mindfulness

As the Series Producer of National Geographic’s hit series Border Wars, Nick Stein can attest to the impact of human misery. For 4 years he and his crews chronicled the unspeakable suffering of illegal migrants, coerced drug smugglers, violent crime victims and burnt out federal law enforcement officers. Over time the stress of making Border Wars began to take a psychological toll on Stein’s resiliency as he suffered from his own and secondary trauma. Using images and footage from his groundbreaking show, Nick humanizes the everyday drama of the border while sharing his story of burnout, change and affirmative growth. In the end Nick invites his audience to experience some of the mindfulness trainings he brings to law enforcement personnel across the country.
