Zen Leader 3

Leading transformation:

Complete your journey through the “flips” of The Zen Leader, with skills and practices by which you sense the whole picture, break through limits, and transform yourself to bring a desired future into the present.

What will you learn?

  • How you limit yourself and how to stop doing it
  • How to embody a change you want to see
  • How to leverage the science of resonance and heart-brain coherence to create a desired future
  • How to work with the liberating and manifesting energy currents
  • How to apply a Zen Toolkit to a transformation project of your choosing
  • How to support colleagues and be supported in implementing your transformation project
  • How to flip from your local self to your whole self and how that changes everything
  • How to experience “host” and “guest” – the final flip of Zen Leadership

“The design and instruction of the courses are masterful and the learning gets put right into your bones through the practices. You can’t help but walk away as a different person- with a new vision manifesting through a new body, and with clearer intention in each new step.”

Kelly Bannister, Ph.D.
Biocultural Ethicist, ZL3 Participant

“The Zen Leader Program helps you reflect on what’s important and connect your energy to actions that address real-world needs, big and small. It starts with awareness, and moves you to action!”

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 offering of the 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.

Do I have to have taken Zen Leader 1 and Zen Leader 2 first?

You’ll want to have taken one of the foundational courses first (i.e., Zen Leader 1, HEAL1,  or Resonate) so you’re familiar with basics that we build on in this session, but if it works better for your schedule, you can take ZL2 and ZL3 in reverse order.   

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.

What follows ZL3?

For 3 months after the program, you’ll participate with peers in follow-on coaching to help you implement your transformation project. We’ll then regather in a session where you’ll officially graduate and receive your Zen Leader Practitioner (ZLP) certification. You’ll then be eligible to attend periodic ZLP events, including the annual master class and ZL+, and/or continue in further training to become a ZL Coach or Instructor. You are also welcome to continue in Chosei Zen training without limit.
