These books by Zen Benefiel, are all designed to take you on a journey in self-awareness, growing to know the secrets inside your mind and heart you’ve kept from yourself. All of the books are available on Amazon. We’ve made them available here as well.
A 10-year effort, Stubbing My T.O.E. on Purpose got this review from Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove, one of the foremost authorities on leading-edge knowledge and thinking:
Zen Benefiel, literally, takes us with him on his journey from drums to conundrums. His mind is facile as he weaves a narrative ranging from deep within the esoteric/ufology subculture to lessons of marriage, family, and business life. He draws upon archetypal psychology with a particular appreciation for the creative godhead archetype. If you read this book with an open heart, you may find yourself discovering new vistas of your own.

Speaking of dreams, the interviews with Jeff were a 26-year answer to the dream of someday being worthy of an interview with him. He and Bill Moyers were my inspiration when I began hosting One World in 1990. It again proves that with attention, intention and action our dreams can come true. I had to be patient for another dream come true, to have quality time with my son who’d been distanced from divorce, which took 18 years to manifest. It certainly warrants consideration for those who are impatient for dreams to come true.
In the beginning, it took over ten years to write the first version of the book (titled: Zendor the Contrarian), and several more to edit again, reducing it from nearly 700 pages down to around 500. It was published under the new title, Stubbing My T.O.E. on Purpose, in December of 2017. In August of 2018, Jeff reached out via another website to share an interview he thought our audience would appreciate. I shared my book a few emails later and an invitation followed. How could I refuse, right?
Reflecting on other similar events with shorter gestation periods, a manner of activity emerged and apparently is repeatable. I share some of the methods in the books below; new and improved stuff isn’t in print yet. I keep discovering and learning more about attention, intention and action. On a practical and pragmatic business side, the workbook for LinkedIn and SCORE-sponsored workshops have been extremely valuable for participants. Please explore these books by Zen Benefiel and add at least one to your digital library.
You are invited to take a deeper look into the being and nature of your identity in this world. Many are awakening with questions beyond the traditional answers provided by modern psychology, psychiatry and especially religions that have progressed on Earth. Many seek mission and purpose in life, but don’t know how to find it. This workbook is designed to help you get the distractions out of the way so you can be available for the answers you seek. It might even help you ask better questions, too.
Have you ever wondered who you really are? Is there something missing in your life that you just can’t put your finger on? This is a typical challenge in personal development and/or spiritual growth, especially for Baby Boomers now. The answers to all your questions are inside you. Knowing that causes frustration and the constant search outside for answers, not trusting your inner guidance. This workbook helps guide you to the answers inside, through proven methods of leading-edge self-awareness and personal development processes.
Compiled and written in 2014, this workbook has been used for multiple SCORE-sponsored workshops in the Phoenix Metro area. Although the graphic user interface has changed, the way LinkedIn looks, the philosophy of using LinkedIn best practices remains intact. This book is in the hands of hundreds, helping them to navigate the world of LinkedIn with better effectivity and understanding of online interactions. If your profile needs some work or you aren’t sure just how to build your network, this workbook will show you how.
