Our mission: to bring leaders to Zen that they can realize their full capacity, to bring Zen to leadership where it can help the world, and to build a community of more awakened leaders worldwide.

We live in a critical time of technological, environmental and systemic disruption. If you’ve trained with us, you know what we do is powerful, unique and needed in the world if we’re to equip future generations with leaders who can make wise choices about life on this planet.

Great Leaders Make a Difference

Great leadership emerges from an interaction of selflessness, fearlessness and authenticity. Great leaders call us toward service of something greater than ourselves and they add value to the people and situations around them. This is trainable. We know because that’s what we do. Through your donations we are developing leaders all over the globe who are making an impact on their businesses, communities, and families. One donation at a time, one leader at time – the effect piles up!

Tell me more. How does my donation contribute?

This year is stretching us to new levels of resilience and agility to meet people where they need us most in this coronavirus time. Your previous donations helped us:

Your funds are amplified through a powerful volunteer network who have helped us expand our programs in healthcare (HEAL), in Europe, Asia, and across the U.S.

We’re a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, and donations are tax deductible. Everything we receive goes straight towards improving our reach, providing scholarships and developing future instructors.

Online donations are collected here, but if you prefer to donate by check, make payable to “IZL” and send to 2540 E. Mifflin Street, Madison, WI 53704.  

Thank you (deep bow).

Wonderful experience. It would seem impossible to come away not having grown in mind and body from this weekend. Highly recommended, regardless of the level of leadership you find yourself in today.

This workshop helps create new openings, a new vision, and new understanding of yourself so you can get out of your own way and move forward.

This was an incredibly graceful integration of Zen principles and practices (including eating!) with solid inside-out leadership tools for the Transformational Age.
