LEADING, TEACHING AND COACHING
FOR A BETTER WORLD
Our community of Zen Leadership practitioners, instructors and coaches are ever-raising the bar for how we can apply this work to what’s needed in the world, bring the out best in our teaching, in one another, and in those we reach. Master Class is our annual opportunity to sharpen the sword.

- How to apply Zen leadership to create more healing, thriving and beauty in the world.
“The ZL series is about learning the content. Master Class is about expressing it through you or discovering what that expression is with support of peers.”
How does it work?
- Online, live, cohort-based program
- Starts Thurs for 2 hours, runs most of the day Fri and Sat, finishes Sun at noon CT
- Morning and evening sessions may be staggered to better accommodate participants from US, Europe or Asia

Theme for 2023
Building off our One Earth, One Health, One With Summit, we’ll further explore how ZL can engage nature-inspired systems thinking, use nature’s patterns (including energy patterns), and how it might use AI in service of life. Guest instructor will be Tom Mansfield using his Cards for Life.

A Master Class Online Cohort: A Force of Nature!
“Nowhere else can you gather and learn from other Zen Leader master teachers. I’ve been attending for five years and, every year, the program is stronger because the teaching corps grows and strengthens.”
“If you want to deepen your Zen Leadership training and dig into the resources on offer all around you, come to this class! This is leadership training for now and is more important than ever!”
“This program is core Zen training (Zazen, embodied practice) plus practical application.”
“Deepen your Zen Leadership skills in a community of practice that will for sure take you to another level!”
“Mastery requires continuous practice and practicing in community magnifies learning and positive impact.”
“The real work starts from here, so if you loved IZL so far, this will take you to another level of head-over-heels in love.”
You Have Questions, We Have Answers
What if I register and then something comes up and I can’t attend the program?
We’ll be glad to roll your registration forward to a future program at the same price.
What if I miss part of the program?
Part of what makes our programs so strong is the sense of community in the cohort, so we encourage you to attend all sessions live. If you have to miss 1-2 hours, we’ll help you get caught up. If you have to miss more than that, we’ll suggest rolling your registration forward to the next offering.
Am I eligible to attend Master Class?
You’re eligible to attend if you’re a certified ZL or HEAL Practitioner or already serving as an instructor or jiki in one or more of our programs. Ask us if you have any questions about your eligibility.
Is Master Class required in order to maintain ZL instructor or coach certification?
We strongly encourage regular attendance at Master Class for all ZL instructors and coaches and require attendance at least once every other year to maintain certification.
What if I can’t afford the program?
If you’re committed to training with us, we’d like to try to make it possible for you. We have a limited number of partial scholarships available to our programs. If you’d like to apply for one, here is an application.
