Zen Coaching Training

The Zen Coaching Training is a one-year, part-time coach training that offers a deep and life changing journey. It was created by Kåre Landfald (Norway) who has trained more than 500 coaches in Sweden, Norway, Polen and South Africa since 2005. Teachers in the training are Kåre Landfald, Kavina Thorslund, Roger Marklund and Marta Obrycka. It offers a certification as a coach in the international Zen Coaching network. After you have completed the training, you will be able to support others in finding clarity, connection to their own answers and ability to act with more power in life through a deep transformational coaching process based on simplicity and presence.

Who is it for?

The Zen Coaching Training is suitable for all individuals who work with other people, whether as managers, teachers, social workers, coaches, advisors etc. It is for anyone who is interested in supporting other people in developing a deeper contact with themselves, compared to what is usually promoted in management, coaching and consulting.

The education is also of value for those who are interested in exploring a deeper connection to oneself and others and to live a life of greater satisfaction. During the training you will go through a powerful process of increased self-knowing, transformation and presence.

>No prior knowledge is needed to participate in the training, although previous experience of working with people, meditation and personal development can be seen as an advantage.

The Zen Way of Coaching is the foundation and basis of the approach of Zen Coaching. Here we will explore the simplicity and power in stopping, and enjoying the moment just as it is. We are practicing our ability to be fully with our experience, however it is, and let the natural intelligence of life lead us in our lives.

You can join this module without committing to the full Zen Coaching Training. It is a wonderful support in being with yourself and others in an empathic, accepting and co-empowering way.

This module is specifically focused on personal transformation and healing. We will discover the “hidden rooms” within us that often times we are so afraid of. To meet them with friendliness open a doorway to our full potential as human beings and supports us in getting deeper connection to all our hidden power and un-owned aspects of ourselves. Here we can start integrating and embodying all aspects of Being in our daily life.

In this module we go deeper into the qualities of the heart; deep empathic listening, authentic communication and powerful questions. We will explore principles from the Non Violent Communication approach and the art of living in authentic relations in all aspects of life – with our family, friends, at work and in social situations.

In this last module we will explore action and manifestation from Being, meaning living from our heart and full potential in our everyday lives, as fully embodied human beings. We will explore the coaching process more in detail; the coaching relationship, ethics and process. This module will also include a powerful and transformative workshop about our relationship to money, as well as an exploreation about the basic principles for succeeding as a professional coach.
