Our Leader Series is for everyone wanting to make a difference through expressing their authentic self. It takes you from training in Zen foundations through “flips” that crack open a bigger you.

You’ll experience the tools and initial “flip” where leadership begins, right the way through to being equipped to transform every corner of your life and work. You’ll explore unmapped territory that takes you to (and through) the root of your fears, and experience the joy and playful freedom on the other side. For most people who attend, the Leader Series is life-changing.

Zen Leadership in the Time of Virus

These times will test you and your leadership more than ever.  Be the leader who can settle people’s fears, connect to all-embracing wisdom, and co-create solutions for our time. Unlike most leadership training, we connect mind, body, energy, and leadership skills so that you can function with the greatest ability and agility. We’re taking the essence of our acclaimed residence-based programs and distilling it online for you to experience Zen Leadership training where you are. We have partial scholarships if you need one, and we have your back: If you register and later find you have to miss some of the training, we’ll carry your enrollment forward and let you pick up anything you missed in our new, serialized online Zen Leader programs coming in the fall. Read/register below and feel free to contact bill@zenleader.global with any questions.

Leaders and entrepreneurs in business and non-profit organizations who aspire to co-create, rather than cope, with the pressures of today, to embody leadership that creates their future and beyond. No previous physical training or meditation experience is required.

This is not your typical leadership session. By working ‘inside-out’ you’ll have the ability to change not just your challenges, but everything shifts and changes.


Because it cannot be grasped. Or that which we would grasp is not Zen. The very tool that we use to grasp or understand things is itself the problem. Because it thinks from the point of view of a separate self. So how can it conceive of moment-by-moment activity that resolves separation? Our mind tries to make Zen into a thing: an austere practice, a rock garden, a spa cream. Zen is no-thing, yet it can infuse all things as it comes through us acting without separation – i.e. one-with. That is what I call the Zen leader coming through you.

This unique and extraordinary training gives you the tools and practices to lead and live with clarity, authenticity, and powerful resonance.


Peruse this website, for the experience of coming to these programs is captured in the quotes and stories of many who have come before you. The rhythm of the training day is similar to that in other Zen training: starting early, running late, meditating around sun-up and sundown, with flex time and varied activities in the afternoon. By the 2nd day, this rhythm has opened people’s senses, put them their bodies; and connected them solidly to the earth; however they approach the challenges of their life and leadership is transformed from there.

This will be hard, but so worth it. It will change you. You won’t get many chances at this in this life.


Once you register for a program we will stay in touch with you on what to wear, what to bring, and other logistics. Basically, we say bring yourself (wearing comfortable workout clothes or a martial art gi if you have one) and bring a challenge you’d like new insight on.
