RELAXING INTO BEING
WHAT IS ZEN COACHING?
ZEN – is presence, awareness, mindfulness, relaxed alertness, true nature; living deeply connected with life´s essence as it unfolds and manifests in surprising and creative way from moment to moment.
COACHING – is the art of supporting people in discovering for themselves their own inner resources and answers to their own questions. This is done mainly through deep, respectful listening and powerful questions.
At the basis of this approach lies the power of contemporary coaching combined with a timeless wisdom based on living life with ease, flow and harmony.
The starting point of Zen Coaching lies in our natural wish to be fully who we are, and to be genuine, authentic and sincere with ourselves and others.
In Zen Coaching reaching external goals is combined with a deeper inner focus. The approach is built upon basic mindfulness principles, or conscious present and also based on exploration of limiting beliefs, and on our true inner resources.
The founder of Zen Coaching is Kåre Landfald from Norway. He was inspired by, among others, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, A.H. Almaas (Diamond Approach), Marshall B. Rosenberg (Nonviolent Communitation), Osho and modern coaching approaches: Focusing, Co-Active Coaching.

WELCOME to my website!
Thank you for BEING here.
My passion is supporting in conscious, mindful and fulfilled life. In harmony with oneself, at the level of deep connection with oneself, with needs and longings, so that you can live from the place of inner wisdom, creativity, joy and power. To live life you are longing for. I am inspired by meetings with other people and accompanying them in discovering themselves and what is real, essential and the most important.
I am a Certified Coach in the Zen Coaching approach. I took part in a one year profound Zen Coaching training in Poland. Currently, I am still following this inspiring and fascinating path by participating in the Zen Coaching Deepening Training for coaches in Sweden. Zen Coaching is for me a nourishing, still deepening and enriching my life the path of development, mindfulness and self-recognition as well as the professional path that has become my greatest passion.
Individual Zen Coaching sessions
During which in empathic, accepting, open and full of curiosity space, I will support you in journey to yourself . I support you with mindfulness, empathic listening and powerfull questions that help you go even deeper, so that we can see together what is difficult and challenging for you.
The basis of the session is to stop and meet with yourself at the moment, here and now, when your life happens. And from the place of being, connection with yourself, your needs and longings discover what is important and true to you at this moment.
Zen Coaching sessions are equal, partnership cooperation. At sessions, there will be no: fixing and improvement, judgement, criticism, advice and ready solutions, analysis and diagnosis.
Zen Coaching has an incredible power that can transform our lives in all areas, regardless of the age, difficulties and challenges we face. At Zen Coaching sessions, you can work with all areas of life, personal as well as professional / business. These can be challenges in relationships with yourself or with others, overwhelming emotions and feelings, professional / business issues, problems with making important decisions and choices, feeling stuck in life, the will to live fully and many, many more.
I offer packages of coaching sessions consisting of 5 or 10 sessions. One session lasts about 60 minutes, the first one is longer, it lasts about 90-120 minutes and is needed to get to know each other better, discuss the principles of cooperation and let us clarify what are the areas of our work.
Sessions can be held personally in Almere or online via Skype.
They are an opportunity to experience the transforming power of Zen Coaching in a small group, meet with yourself at a completely different level than in everyday busy and chaotic life. When we relax in being, our true inner potential of wisdom, creativity, power, joy, peace and clarity opens up for us and completely new perspectives.
Real, mindful listening is a gift that we rarely allow ourselves and rarely experience in life. Despite its simplicity, it has tremendous power. The way we listen to ourselves and others makes a big difference in experiencing life. Practice/ meditation of pure, mindful listening is one of the basic practices of Zen Coaching. This meeting will give you the opportunity to experience what it is like to be listened to in an open, non-judgmental, full of kindness, in which no one interrupts you, comments you or gives good advice. Come and feel the magic of mindful listening.
