Become a Certified Zen Counsellor

Zen Counseling is a simple yet powerful & effective form of counseling based on the fundamental principal of ZEN Buddhism.

The origin of Zen Counseling :

Mr. Kenichi Ishimaru created Zen Counseling in the year 2000 in Japan.

“Zen Counseling is based on the concept of Zen.
Westerners often ask me what is Zen.
My answer is very simple.
If it is simple, it is Zen.
If it is complicated, it is not Zen.
Our mind is full of junk thoughts. So, it is not Zen
LOVE is simple.
Love or non-love. so, love is Zen
Zen is Love and any truth itself.” – Kenichi Ishimaru

About Zen Counseling?

ZEN Counseling is the simplest counseling method created based on the concept of ZEN that everyone is already a Buddha. It is designed to learn all the methods in 4 days (24 hours) to become a Certified ZEN Counsellor.

ZEN Counseling was born from a simple question “If everyone is already a Buddha and your client is also a Buddha, then what is the role of Counseling? What is the role of counselor?”

ZEN Counseling helps open up the clients’ capacity to heal themselves and to solve their problems by coming in contact with their Inner Wisdom, without giving any advice.
