The Zen Leader

Amidst the fears and disruptions of our times, never has the need for more awakened leadership been greater.  For leaders facing into all this change, never have they needed the embodied agility, resilience and non-dual wisdom of Zen leadership more.

Training with us is not about thoughts or a belief system, but about physical transformation to sense and serve the whole picture, leading from your whole self.  That’s Big.

Purpose: to resource leaders with the tools of Zen training and the applied “flips” of The Zen Leader, enabling more authentic, agile and embodied leadership that creates a better world. Come with a leadership challenge and leave with not only a different approach, but a different you approaching it.


  • Reframe challenges – guaranteed
  • Learn the 4 modes of leadership and how to bring out the energy that does each one best
  • Find greater centeredness, access to power, a quieter mind, stronger influencing skills, better decision making, and how to bring about a desired future

Includes breathing exercises, physical conditioning, meditation, and an introductory session of bodywork, set amidst a stunning natural environment.
