Bruce ‘Zen’ Benefiel – Advocate for Harmony among People and Planet

A recollection from years of re-creating, re-purposing the repository of skills, knowledge and ability...

Just in case you want to know more about this guy...

“Bruce, are you willing to die for what you believe in?” I was asked that question in 1975, while in the Pre-Med program at Ball State University, believed in cosmic consciousness and said ‘Yes.’ The NDE that followed took me into the light and beyond, surrounded by points of light on an indigo background and given marching orders for my life, “These are those that you are to work with in order to facilitate a new world order. It will happen in your lifetime. Know this to be true. Your path will be full of trials and tribulations. Have faith and trust that everything you need with be there at its appointed time. Trust and allow.”

One World in a New World – June 2021 after a near 30-year hiatus

NetiZen… ET AL 

Over 40 years of personal and professional opportunities in numerous environments and industries coalesces for a robust skill set in this ‘possibilities coagulator,‘ according to Dudley Lynch. Aptitude, attitude and the ability to say ‘yes’ to invitations and opportunities created a plethora of skill building events and pragmatic applications across professional environments. Observing and studying the process turned me into a cognitive scientist over time, delving into how the mind works.

I believe we are far more capable of doing things beyond our imagination than we give ourselves credit.Zen Benefiel In fact, the simple action of making a step toward achieving a dream brings many worlds into order and available for support. The longer one stays the course, the better the experience gets. I’ve been a witness to many transformations in my life, my own and others, and they all begin with faith, love and trust at the core. The activities of attention, intention and action coagulate the particles that were only waving, if you get the drift.

I consider Zen to be one of those superlative examples Dudley Lynch's testimonialof what the human brain can store and serve up in unique and appealing ways at will on most any occasion or assignment. To say his range of knowledge and interests are “eclectic” is understatement. And this is what makes his services as a “possibilities coagulator“ for his clients so valuable and exciting.

Smart fellow! Great ally!

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.

This presentation was given as part of a virtual festival on building regenerative communities held from April 30 – May 2, 2021. It was held at and had approximately 600 patrons.

Zen is an exceptionally well qualified facilitator and manager of group processes. He is very effective watching group participants to ensure they are engaged and draws people into the process. He is very open, an excellent communicator and I enjoy working with him. His experience and education make him an excellent choice for leading groups to consensus and goal accomplishment.

Zen Benefiel is a man of great ideas and passion. You will never find Zen in a box ~ “Out of the Box” thinking is one of his best attributes. He is a wonderful motivational speaker and workshop leader. A few years ago I had the opportunity to bring him in to work with a staff of 15 people for Team Building. He did an outstanding job ~ so much so we still use the information as a benchmark for communication. Top qualities: Personable, Good Value, Creative

Do not hire Zen if you will settle for traditional guidance with no surprises. Don’t hire Zen if you merely aim to fulfill some education requirement. You see, Zen is no ordinary consultant or facilitator. Do you have any idea how rare it is to find this kind of genius — a distinguished guru who is a Gandhi-esque idealist and who also happens to have his feet firmly planted on the ground?

So hire Zen because you know you need new information. You know you need to think differently. You realize you had better stop doing what you’ve been doing wrong for too long. And most of all, you can be sure that Zen will deliver the practical tools that will enable you to succeed at higher levels.

Do not be ordinary. Hire Zen.


If any of this has you considering reaching out and contacting Zen, then here is the perfect place to do it. You’ve made it this far, so don’t be shy. You can fill out your information and send a message to Zen straight away.

We thank you for sharing some of your time and space with us in this often serendipitous web of thoughtmospheric synchronicity.

Enjoy the journey, lead with vision and, of course… Be The Dream – YOURS!

You’ll need to remove the spaces on either side of the @ to get to Zen.
