Presence & Inquiry

The Zen Way of Coaching – Relaxing Into Being is the foundational element and forms the bedrock of the Zen Coaching approach. Here we explore the simplicity and power of stopping and simply being – enjoying this moment as it is.

This is followed by the active engagement of Inquiry into the present moment; looking deeply into my experience to understand it fully, and to let the natural intelligence of life unfold.

This is the basis of the Zen Coaching process and it supports us in being of deep support to ourselves and others. As we relax, we also access our true, full and amazing inner potential of peace, strength, joy, love, freedom, trust, compassion, clarity and creativity.


Coaching is the art of supporting awareness, responsibility and conscious choice, mainly by using powerful questions and deep listening. Curiosity and trust are the foundation of this kind of support, and they are also the basis for a life of joy, fulfillment, expansion, growth, healing, transformation and ease.

In this module, we explore what supports these qualities, and what blocks them. We also learn the basic framework and toolbox for working as an effective coach – both for self-coaching and in coaching others.
