Zen has been great! I will continue to engage his coaching services! His innate insights and empowering questions have given me both knowledge and an inner understanding of myself. This has allowed me to see and feel things better as I navigate my life. As a businessman, husband, father and professional the results have been beyond any previous business or personal coaching. Zen is able to resolve very complex situations and offer simple questions to guide the resolve. This has helped me and those around me. As a chiropractor and business owner, I’ve hired several business coaches that had a lot of information and little actual help in accomplishing goals and objectives. In just 3 months Zen has helped me with focus, stress reduction, how to be more productive and communicating with others, just to mention a few results. This has benefited everything around me including myself, my business, my patients and my family. He does this in a way that no other coach or counselor does. He takes a holistic approach using his years of education and background to help reach each individual’s potential. Thanks Zen!
en is a terrific life coach and insightful healer. His methods are advanced, as that is what is needed now for an evolving society. You won’t get “cookie-cutter” information from Zen; you will receive a precise reading of your inner self and learn how to use the magnificence you already possess to guide your decisions and create the manifestation of your goals. Nowadays, anyone can get an on-line coaching certificate. (It seems to be the new job title for every out-of-work actress I meet.) Those that are true healers, such as Zen, work beyond the limitations of static information. This approach unifies all modalities, as Zen brings his clients to the apex of their highest functionality in all aspects of their life.
Simply put, you're the best life and business coach I've ever experienced. Always stimulating my process and my path in life and business, you make things clear as you explain a multidimensional picture of life. You really helped and supported me in creating change in my life, nurturing and universally accepting of me. I've known a lot of people in my life, 25 years in the Insurance business, who claim to be coaches. They don't hold a candle to you, Zen.

I’m humbled by the opportunities and successes. It’s imbued my coaching practice with priceless capacity for understanding people and helping them to turn their inner drive into practical results.

My Philosophy of Care

I've been inspired by serving others since my childhood. I've been one to offer assistance to anyone at any time in virtually any place. I've grown in capacity and value as I matured, including devouring metaphysical, spiritual and theosophical texts. It's just my nature; an insatiable curiosity toward how things work from the inside. People always seemed to open up to me with their challenges, fears and situations. I wasn't always able to help, but I did listen and reflect.

In my late 20s and working for an aerospace manufacturer as a project manager (responsible for $7 million/mo) I created and facilitated discussion groups for exploring the challenges of being highly sensitive to others and paranormal phenomena. I also started Be The Dream consulting services which focused on applying a balanced approach of business and spiritual best practices. Happy people get more done with less supervision and achieve beyond expectation as workgroups.

I went through a devastating divorce, left the corporate world and began anew. Now in my early 30s, one of the first opportunities in the corporate afterlife was producing a television show of my own design, peering into the depths of what keeps us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile. I hosted over 100 shows with the same format, asking guests what prompted them toward their careers from both inner and outer perspectives, what fears they encountered on the journey and, most importantly, how they overcame them and found success. What became clear is how we think determines our results.

My passion has always been to achieve great things by myself and with others in each moment, whether task or vision oriented. After a plethora of career paths and various successes I was inspired to take my expertise to the next level professionally and acquire a life coaching certification. I’d proven methods and techniques I’d learned and practiced were extremely effective for changing attitude and direction when necessary. I had been working with a local healing arts school already and became a graduate among their second group of life coaches.

The next phase of my life was ready to unfold as inspiration and opportunity presented challenging and fulfilling clients and results. It is so rewarding to be able to demonstrate how the thinking and feeling about self-actualization and self-realization can affect life. I continue to be inspired by possibility I know is there and practice what I preach; focusing on attention, intention and actions that align and are congruent toward goals and objectives. Seeing the light go off in others’ eyes is ineffable.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

From a client: Working with Zen has been an eye opening experience. During the intake process, which is sophisticated without being overly complicated, I was given time to more closely examine some of my ideas and goals. Upon our first meeting together, we were able to identify new items that were not immediately recognized by me and helped to clarify and rearrange some of my priorities.

My Inspiration

Imagine being able to rearrange all the stuff your head in a way that produces better results in your life, almost magical with synchronicities that bring a sense of awe and inspiration. Wouldn't that make you feel a sense of joy and happiness you've probably rarely if ever had? That's what working with a transformational life coach is like.

Questions & Answers

Zen Benefiel, CHt, MA, MBA Answers
I'd be cautious as to what I ascribe inner symptoms to in the outer world. We tend to want to find something outside of ourselves that gives us an excuse to feel the way we do internally and then try to find something to either assuage or fix the issue. There are so many belief systems surrounding the 'ascension' that is makes one rather dizzy and disoriented just trying to keep up with them. Make is simple. The sensations that we're presented with are part of our own awakening and growth toward self-actualization and self-realization. The two are inextricable in the evolution of self/Self. Self-actualization is about finding 'perfect' form, fit and function in the world. Self-realization is about finding that same form, fit and function within. Sure, there are practitioners who can assist in developing your poignant and profound questions opportunities. The answers are always found within, so they say, and it is true. The process of understanding and transforming oneself accordingly is still a pseudo-science at best, though there are references in quantum physics and spiritual practices that mirror each other. Some of the shifts can be pretty intense, like a wave of energy that completely wipes you out and even causes a collapse of the physical body for a short time. I've had that happen and gave me a new view on 'spooky action at a distance.' Everyone is different, though, and each require certain aspects of consciousness to emote and evolve through the process. It seems the most appropriate 'place' to be in emotionally is fearlessness, though that doesn't mean to throw caution to the wind. It means operating in the faith, love and trust that emotes from the core of our center, the BEing. Practicing inner methodologies will often bring outer validation, like synchronicities galore, and as one experiences them as evidence to requests for connections, people or understanding... the trust grows. Ultimately, asking for help from within with sincerity will trigger the outer world to respond. Just be patient and persevere. :)

Hypnosis provides and atmosphere to address change. It does not take control of the individual. It does offer control to the individual as they are led into the area of focus or purpose of the session. Results are based on a choice and commitment to perform and hypnosis acts as a support system for change. The experience I've had with it allows the individual to see themselves as they are and as they wish to be with a bridge for getting there. I prefer the deeper work hypnosis can provide, though, rather than addictions or behaviors.

Don, from my experience, the only drawback to meditation is not treating the practice with respect. I hear 'oh, it's not working' and inquire of the actual devotion and time spent. Most of us have cluttered minds and cannot manage the mayhem, increasing stress in our lives. It's hard to be still. Judging your ability to be still and engage the practice might be a drawback as it tends to cause frustration and we all want to avoid frustration, right? Sometimes folks view meditation as a very complex practice when it really isn't. Some of the more advanced techniques may be a bit more demanding. I like a simple method I stumbled upon as a teenager faced with an altered state that was really intense. I put my fingertips together and noticed I could feel my heart beat in them. As I focused and became aware of my breath, the intense stimulation turned into a blissful quiet and solace from my overactive mind.

It has been a pleasure working with Zen and I look forward to our continued coaching sessions.
