Robin Johnson – Certified Spiritual Awakening Coach & Author

Zen is on a mission to help all of us become “excellent human beings”. I am honored and blessed by his presence in my life. As we each take on this challenge that Zen is promoting, then the world can change for the better. I am honored to work with Zen in this quest to bring “oneness” to the world for it is not only necessary but also vital for our sustainability.

Andrea Scarantino – Mindset Coach

Zen creates a space of harmonious being. He comes open, and through that openness, others give themselves permission to allow for just a little bit more vulnerability and flow than they did before. I have experienced a deep, visceral connection to myself in spaces led by Zen. I should also mention that Zen is fiercely intelligent, and prolific in his work. He’s extremely well-read, multi-talented, multi-faceted, and creates value in this world with a frequency that is astonishing.

Smart fellow! Great ally!

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.

I don’t praise lightly or often.

When I do offer praise, especially when it’s public, I make sure I’ve had the experience to back up my words. Over the course of a year or more I’ve had the opportunity to engage almost daily with Zen Benefiel on many platforms of intellectual rigor as well as transformational themes. Zen doesn’t think outside the box, he *is* outside the box. Creativity, imagination, insight, curiosity & understanding are a few of the tools he employs to get to the heart of the matter. Transformational Life Coaching requires a professional who has coached himself, done the inner work, explored the questions. Now that professional is primed to help you – as he has helped me and many others. Perhaps you’ll consider contacting him to have a Discovery Chat and learn is this is the fit for you.

Emissary from the Future

Zen feels like an emissary from the future, a time when many more people are at home with a wider scope of consciousness. It’s not an easy role to be in but Zen has lived it with openness, courage, humility and grace as an author, guide and transformational life coach.

Jump on Zen’s Bandwagon

Zen is amazing. His insights are beyond almost anyone I’ve ever known. He is down to earth but understands that there is so much more than what meets the eye. Zen asks thought-provoking questions that make you look deep inside and bring out previously hidden truths. Zen is a leader, a dreamer, and a world changer, the best possible combination. I recommend Zen to anyone looking to know more about themselves and the universe surrounding them. If you desire to make the world a better place, jump on Zen’s bandwagon.

The Best!

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.

Highly intuitive, empathetic, personable

Seldom does one meet someone who can be called, “friend” and “spirit guide” breathlessly in the same sentence, but Zen fits the bill. I had a chance to work with him when I was the liason to the local learning & development chapter he captained, and even then, I knew Zen was a cut above. Highly intuitive, empathetic, personable and possessing a zest for knowledge and helping those around him, working with Zen in any capacity is an experience that will enrich your life immensely.

Zen Sees Things On Levels That Most People Do Not

Zen helped me sift through my thoughts and goals so I could better achieve them. He helped me to expand my awareness for things within me and around me and use them as guides in daily living. Zen is extremely intelligent and sees things on levels that most people do not.
