Recommendations and Testimonials
I consider Zen to be one of those superlative examples of what the human brain can store and serve up in unique and appealing ways at will on most any occasion or assignment. To say his range of knowledge and interests are “eclectic” is understatement. And this is what makes his services as a “possibilities coagulator” for his clients so valuable and exciting.

“Zen thinks, studies, learns,… then he communicates, communes and facilitates primarily to help people and institutions. Unfortunately for Zen, he cares so intensely about the core of his work that he has become a guru – a creature of both earth and space — whose work ought to be studied by concrete, action-taking followers and broken down for the rest of the world to understand and act upon.”
Jack Dermody, Four Windows Personality Expert…
Zen 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.

“Zen is an exceptional teacher, conceptualist and transformative coach. He has helped surround my limitations with awareness, showing me how to discover the nature of limitation itself. He has guided me to ask myself questions that empowered me to break on through to the other side. When you are ready to step bravely forward, enlist Zen’s help to ensure that you don’t fall back into old patterns and cheat yourself out of your potential. Zen knows the dynamics of that internal battle and can help you to stay accountable to yourself.” March 30, 2011

“Since I’ve known Zen, he is a facilitator of change and naturally facilitates the ability to glimpse a new perspective and awareness. And that change is about breaking new ground. Zen has the ability to show up in one’s life usually just when you need to reach further or find your way personally, spiritually or professionally. Zen’s sense of inquiry and experience help one to find their own answers. And in my opinion, that is nature’s highest road. And when change becomes fearful, Zen’s calm demeanor and occasional dry humor help the ability to move freely. Zen, thanks for your insight over the years.” July 16, 2010

“My path was unclear; complications had entered my life, my business and my thinking. Last week I was in the right place and received a consultation from Zen, he did not judge, he did not direct, he listened and helped me identify and separate my complications and show me my path. That is a very powerful ability to share with people. THANKS ZEN” December 21, 2009

Got off the phone with Zen about my web site problems (it was hacked) and left with feeling confident Zen “owned” my problem – and he resolved the issues quickly. Subsequent follow ups to increase traffic through SEO, Google Adwords and other social media sites continue to build not only my confidence in Zen’s abilities, but optimism over the direction we are heading. I hope he can do the same for my golf game!
“Zen is a multi-talented man. Consulting, connecting, life coaching,
speaking, WordPress, etc, you name it, Zen has done it and if he hasn’t, he is on his way to doing so!
Jay Berens – President, RS Solutions, Inc. Dec. 10, 2015
Zen kindly came to the rescue when I was working on a WordPress site for a client. He identified and offered development solutions for the project which I really appreciated.
As a life coach, Zen is very empathetic and listens without judgement. He also offers a unique perspective on challenges and ways to accept and then transform them to help you thrive. Plus, Zen is hoot!”

“Working with Zen is as his name reflects, a tranquil place of intuitive and happy beginnings! I would recommend him to anyone searching for guidance in their personal evolution, be it emotional, spiritual and/or occupational. He is a kind, humorous, pragmatic universal thinker that can help you put your thoughts in a more constructive perspective. Creating suggested venues for personalizing a joyful and successful plan for change, renewal, and visualization will help you evolve the paradigm you desire to live in.
I found Zen on an effort to link with a soul that would understand my transitional ideas, my new thoughts, and might be able to help me evolve my challenges in a thoughtful way…and I landed on Zen’s page! His concepts and offer to coach me were intriguing and kind, and when it said he loved Rock n Roll, I knew he must be alright! My suggestion to you is to give Zen a call, share your ideas, concerns, concepts… and he will carry you to the outer limbs of the tree so you can get a better view. He will hold your hand so you don’t fall- ” April 14, 2011

“Zen Benefiel is a man of great ideas and passion. You will never find Zen in a box ~ “Out of the Box” thinking is one of his best attributes. He is a wonderful motivational speaker and workshop leader. A few years ago I had the opportunity to bring him in to work with a staff of 15 people for Team Building. He did an outstanding job ~ so much so we still use the information as a benchmark for communication.”
K.C. Miller, Founder/Owner, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts
“Zen’s commitment to possibility is profound. He has experienced life beyond fear and has infinite compassion for others. There is no stopping Zen. He is intense and totally coach-able. In the first two weeks of working together, a world transforming possibility took shape with an ensemble and core competencies insuring success. Chief Coagulator is the perfect title for Zen. For all he’s done, the world has seen nothing yet. Stay tuned!” July 31, 2009

“Do not hire Zen if you will settle for traditional guidance with no surprises. Don’t hire Zen if you merely aim to fulfill some education requirement. You see, Zen is no ordinary consultant or facilitator. Do you have any idea how rare it is to find this kind of genius — a distinguished guru who is a Gandhi-esque idealist and who also happens to have his feet firmly planted on the ground?
In just a few hours. Zen turned around my website and social media from mediocre to amazing. I kept asking myself why I hadn’t thought of all the stuff he did. But that’s why I hired him. He saw through the trees and helped me back onto my mission.
So hire Zen because you know you need new information. You know you need to think differently. You realize you had better stop doing what you’ve been doing wrong for too long. And most of all, you can be sure that Zen will deliver the practical tools that will enable you to succeed at higher levels.
Do not be ordinary. Hire Zen.” June 8, 2012 Jack Dermody
