Kåre Landfald has been working internationally as a coach and teacher for the last 20 years. He is the founder of Zen Coaching, a powerful, heart-based approach to coaching and inner transformation. This approach is based on the insight that we ARE what we long for - and that this truth is realized when we say a full YES to all our inner experiences. The Zen Coaching Training is presently offered in Sweden, Poland and South Africa. Kåre has also founded the international Zen Coaching community for mutual support and collaboration, which now has around 500 members from more than 20 countries.
The inspiration for Zen Coaching is from many sources, including the coaching tradition, Zen Buddhism, the Diamond Approach of A.H. Almaas, Nonviolent Communication (Marshall Rosenberg), Family Constellatoin work, Osho, and more. Earlier, Kåre worked in International Affairs within the United Nations, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other organisations, in areas such as poverty reduction, environmental policies, leadership, UN reform, and more.
