Transformational Life Coach – Zen Benefiel
Experience the bridge of science and spirituality in practice.
The Passion and Purpose of My Work
I’m quite unique in the realms of transformational life coaching, having degrees in business as well as decades of exploration in self-discovery as it relates to understanding the nature of reality and our ability to co-create our living experience. It began after a Near-Death Experience in my first year of pre-med in college, in 1975, when my life became engrossed in studying behavior modification and cognitive science; observing patterns of feelings and thoughts associated with actions, not just the biology and physiology of the body. The experience also brought the awareness that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form with the ability to co-create our reality. That’s a hot topic today and the leading edge of exploring quantum entanglement in everyday living. I lead clients into a greater experience of reality as a result.
Early sessions over a decade ago showed I was onto something in being able to help others through transforming their lives into more desirable circumstances. Eventually I felt qualified to make it a profession, having earned a MBA, MA in Organizational Management and certification as both Life Coach and Hypnotherapist. I have all the credentials to back up the expertise with the ability to listen empathically and assist with a sensemaking process.
Descriptions of the practice and understanding vary, though the achievement of being able to facilitate or instruct others in the practice is truly leading-edge applied awareness combined with cognitive science. Everyone has a dream or a goal they would like to accomplish. Be The Dream is a statement as much as a business name today. The direct experience is the definitive proof you’ll get that removes the doubt in your ability to perform beyond your expectations.
Transformational Life Coach
Zen is a catalyst for transforming conversations. He is a connector for the leaders of social transformation. He brings a deep sense of curiosity, a wealth of knowledge and understanding, but what truly sets him apart is his vulnerability.
His ability to sink deep into himself and bring the treasures that he has found to others in service is profound. If you need a bridge builder between science and spirituality to navigate complexity – he is your person.
Mansi was a guest on a new podcast, One World in a New World, yet another effort to share life experiences of others to offer insight and reflection of how we are co-creating a ‘new normal’ that challenges the old patterns of separative notions and diminished capacity. I returned to the passion I’ve held throughout a 30-year hiatus from previous efforts with the original One World in the early 90s.

2020-21 While others were in shock and struggling – Katie stepped up and out from the crowd.
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. With Zen’s guidance I was able to move closer to my “dreams” with my career. and see positive changes in many areas of my life that I had always hoped for. I found more confidence and boldness to live my life the way I know God intended. ~ Katia Von Kral – Artist
Katie came to me with previous successes before the ‘pandemic,’ desires for re-creating her business and life that included dreams of having her own TV show. In the flow, she got an interview for the RFDTV Cowboy Channel. She was an accomplished artist-in-demand with her live painting show that had her in front of thousands, including doing opening acts for Country & Western concerts, Barrett-Jackson Auto Shows and more. The pandemic stopped the live performances and created challenges for her continued success. She scoured the web, resonated with my approach, had an introductory phone call (button below) and moved forward with little trepidation.
We zeroed in on her skillset along with the people, places and things that could be resources, crafted a loose action plan (creatives need things a little loose) and ‘loose ends’ tightened up with new opportunities. Our sessions help her shift her mindset, allowing the bigger vision to appear real and viable, and within a few months the opportunity appeared. Working with me, she was able to shift her attitudes and beliefs that weren’t serving her and the result, well, she’s got an entire episode of an existing show coming up and a 13-week series of her own that will potentially be seen by over 75 million viewers. Imagine what a laser-focused approach could do for you with your own transformational life coach guiding the way.

YOU… here and now
Zen is very knowledgeable about a variety of topics related to transformational leadership and group dynamics. As a contributor to collective narratives co-created by the participants of the Thought Leadership for Systems Transformation Program, he added great value with his passion and experience. Zen is also a talented network weaver and a skilled podcast host. If you are looking for a coach or facilitator who has a deep commitment to transcending division and separation or if you are looking for a thought partner or connector in the field of change, engaging Zen would be a great choice!
What makes Zen such an effective coach is that he has the wonderful (and extremely rare ability) to simply and respectfully listen to a client without judgment. Total compassion and confidentiality. This allows one to fully open up and trust Zen with their concerns. Zen is deeply passionate about helping people achieve clarity in order to create and implement effective solutions to their problems. He is there every step of the way!
Zen’s extensive life experience allows him to relate to anyone about virtually anything! He has been there to advise me about my fears of starting my own web design business along with personal matters, too. I love the guy! Considering Zen for coaching? Investing in his coaching is a very fruitful and wise decision. ~ Nikki Davis
Zen is a fantastic coach. He possesses an in depth business knowledge and deep eternal wisdom.
Zen helped me find that “knowing” that will allow me to make smart and informed business and life decisions.
I’m sure we will work with each other again in the future. ~ David Nichols
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! ~ Kevin Fox, DC

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.
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. ~ Susan Winter, author/evolutionary relationship expert
Zen provides consulting, support, and creativity far beyond the expectations of the most demanding clients. No kidding. We worked on a book together and the finished product is stunning. For other projects, he shows up early, demonstrates MacGyver type knowledge and skills, takes ordinary ideas and twists them toward genius. Whatever you pay him, it’s a bargain. Make him part of your team.
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.
Zen has led many workshops on self-realization and has heightened the awareness of individuals promoting their growth and well-being and giving a deep and meaningful purpose to the lives of many. His wisdom and gentle guidance allows others to grow at their own pace yet encourages and empowers one to dig deeper and become all they can be.
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 engaging in understatement. And this is what makes his services as a “possibilities coagulator” for his clients so valuable and exciting. Smart fellow! Great ally! ~ Dudley Lynch, Co-Owner & President, Brain Technologies, Inc.

Transformational Life Coach View
I founded Be The Dream in 1988 while working for an aerospace firm, with the notion that best practices of business, personal development and spiritual realms mirror each other as a trifecta for life. In 1990 I earned the moniker of Zen hosting a TV show and as a cognitive scientist with decades of trials and tribulations, my work is unique and produces demonstrable results.
An unexpected review: Something even Richard Feynman didn’t have enough time and still needed to examine, Quantum Love. What would it be like to meet the actual FUTURE puzzle makers themselves? This is what it is like to meet with Zen and his work. If you also have a piece that doesn’t seem to fit, you might just not be seeing the bigger picture. His books will help you unlock your true potential, regardless of the narrow views of those around you! Imagine what he can do in person. ~ Elisa E., Scottsdale
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.
~ Richard Feynman, theoretical physicist

I’m really good at what I do. We’ll create a new living awareness for you. Above all, that includes renewed hope and inspiration. That means sustainability in practice which garners results.
Relax. Take a deep breath. I can help. Reach out. You could see me as a kind of ‘harmonist‘ that helps restore your ‘wa,’ so to speak.
Likewise, it implies a peaceful unity and conformity of your feelings and thoughts. Life is a puzzle many cannot solve. I’ve found keys, processes and tools, that absolutely work when you do. That’s my contribution
As a cognitive scientist and transformational coach you’ll find me engaging and inquisitive beyond measure; challenging the status quo in so many ways so that you do not fool yourself any longer. Answers to your puzzling questions about life, love and work are as easy as figuring out the right questions to ask. I’m an empathizing expert in discovering questions your intuition will validate.

Most go it alone and spend copious amounts of unproductive time in their efforts. Some seek help to distill and streamline their process. From studying best practices, they know the effectiveness of a coach or mentor. Dr. Fox waited seven years, and could have been much further along now.
The question is, do you want to waste time or get on with it? I’ve spent my life garnering knowledge, understanding and wisdom toward facilitating people, places and things to work together better. My passion is to serve others who are seeking assistance and want a profound change in their own awareness. Hopefully, I’ll see you soon.
