What is a Zen leadership program like?
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.
Why is Zen so hard to understand?
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.
