What you should know about the author of “The Power Principle”

Up to about the age of 12, Sergey Sorin lived in relative poverty with many hardships in the former Soviet Union. Three generations of his family lived in small, congested quarters. Like many of his peers and family members, Sergey learned not to ask, talk about or even think about topics like spirituality. In fact, many cultural and social customs were controlled and restricted under communist control.

Coming to the United States brought many changes, freedoms and questions for Sergey. After the initial challenge of learning the language and adapting to the culture, he made the decision to pursue medicine as a career. After a lengthy journey through pre-medical education, medical school, and subsequent training, he took his first job as a family practice/urgent care physician. He found his life’s calling one day after watching a television advertisement about a weight loss product that promised quick results without dieting or exercise.

As a result, he got further medical training in Bariatrics, the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of obesity.Since then, he founded the Physician Weight Loss and Wellness Center.He also became a medical director for a surgical weight loss center, providing a comprehensive program for those trying to lose weight.

Meanwhile, he traveled around the world as much as possible, including doing missionary and other volunteer work. However, despite the relative material success and security from his medical career and the excitement of his travels, he still felt something was missing in his life. That something would eventually take shape in the form of the mind-body-spirit alignment, the basis for the Power Principle series of books.

Earlier in his life, the death of his grandparents brought the insecurities, fears and worries he had about life into perspective. Sergey describes this as “the lowest point” of his adult life. However, this was also the turning point and beginning of what would become his personal “enlightenment.” He began to study the great spiritual teachings within the current and past religious systems, including Western (Judaism, Christianity), as well as Eastern (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and others). Of particular interest was the mystical component that emphasized the direct relationship of an individual to a higher purpose. Sergey also started learning and participating in meditation with a higher purpose in mind. Shortly after this time, he was diagnosed with cancer. The spiritual practice that ensued following, and in light of that event crystallized peace in his mind, heart and soul. Thus, he experienced comfort, tranquility, strength, and happiness, despite the physical pain, the loss of income, the uncertainty of the future, and possible recurrence.

Today, Sergey resides in Sullivan County, NY, In light of his personal revelations and bariatric training; he has developed “The Power Principle,” a comprehensive approach to empowering people to achieve their goals.
