About - Zen Leadership

Our purpose

Take Zen into your life
Then go out and do something good with it

We are here for one reason: to remove fear. By helping people move freely through life, we can manifest our purpose and create a better world. Zen training forms the condition in your body that allows you to create what you’re here to do.

From the moment we are born, we survive by building protective layers around ourselves like so many layers of paint. Beneath these layers, we have gifts that demand expression. Moving beyond fear, we can strip off the paint to reveal our essence. This takes us from a state of coping, trapped in a cycle of anxiety and resistance, to realising our true purpose.

Zen Leader goes well beyond the limits of mindfulness to help you fundamentally reframe the challenges you face, transform what is holding you back, and ultimately get out of your own way. Through zazen meditation and other traditional practices, we create an unforgettable experience and energy that takes hold across all areas of your life.

It’s incredible what can happen in just a few hours with the right people and the right direction.
