Trusted Advisor podcast. We share our knowledge, we share our connections, we do business together. And twice a month I get to harass my fellow DEA members on this podcast. We serve small and mid-sized business owners in Denver and all over the world with website design and development, search engine optimization, pay per click advertising, marketing automation and more. He is also an internationally recognized human behavior and technology consultant.

Len is a fully ordained Zen Priest, meditation teacher, and spiritual leader and provides training, coaching, workshops, and retreats through his organization Zen with Len. Welcome to the show Len! Len Silverston: Thank you, Erik. Len Silverston: So Zen is a Japanese word that means awareness. This has nothing to do with religion at all.

So what we do is we do coaching and retreats and facilitate workshops and do intensives with people and all different techniques and tools and approaches to really what I think is the most important thing: how to live according to your true nature and purpose and make the most out of life.

Erik Wolf: So how in the world did you get started with being Zen and then taking the leap to where it becomes your business. How did that all happen? Len Silverston: So back in the 80s I was totally not into Zen or spirituality or religion or anything like that.

I had seen terrible things happen with people, really horrific things happen with people religious. I was 29 years old and I was on top of the world with materialism and success and all these material signs of success. And at the same time, I was miserable. I was just totally miserable. So I went on this ten day, hours a day sitting meditation, very very disciplined, had never really meditated much before that. Where now I lead the retreats and do the workshops.

Len Silverston: From my perspective, the number one obstacle is what I call a case of mistaken identity. So Erik, you as well as most of the population are not who you think you are. Erik Wolf: I really feel like I have gotten to know myself pretty well over the last four decades. What am I missing? Len Silverston: Well if you were to describe yourself. Who are you? Erik Wolf: I am Erik. I am a marketer. I am a father. I am a decent guy, people have told me that.

What are we? At a deep enough level, we realize you are so much more than that you were infinitely more than that. And one of the greatest realizations that we can see is we are There are creatures. We have unlimited potential. I am a database consultant. In Christianity the see the Kingdom of Heaven lies within. What if we realize this unlimited potential within us.

How long were you silent for? Len Silverston: Hundreds of days over the last 30 years. Erik Wolf: At a time? Erik Wolf: Holy cow buddy. Len Silverston: Well, my first retreat. So my first teacher said just sit for five minutes and then stand up and then sit for five minutes and stand up.

I did that for 13 hours by the way. And then the next day I said, well I got another issue. Len Silverston: Ah so five minutes a day, five minutes a day you get to talk. So not completely silent the whole day is a period of five minutes. But I was rounding it off.

All right. Erik Wolf: So plus or minus five minutes, you were silent for ten days. So give me a hero story. What was something that, where you went in and you brought the Zen and things really worked out well?

Len Silverston: One story that comes to mind is a woman CEO of a medium size company, about employees and I went into her organization and provided meditation and mindfulness training. It was only about an hour a month and then at various times, she would actually come to my three-day retreats or three-day intensives.

I get twice as much work done through awareness and through concentration. I get twice as much work done. The irony is, is that if we can actually stop and take some time, we can create amazing productivity we can reduce stress. There have been studies, many studies through Gallop and Gartner saying that the engagement level of people worldwide, is 85 percent of the population is disengaged.

One study says 87 percent, two years ago they did this. People are not loving their work. In another company I went into, they went in and they said the time and space, you could see it.

As a matter of fact, we can actually measure it. There are three of us in this room right now and that means a two and a half of us are even here.

So Len, to try to bring us back to some sort of a target or focus. Because this is a trusted advisor podcast and I want you to be my trusted advisor for a moment. Len Silverston: Well people meditate many times for decades without any measurable results. And a lot of times people will choose a meditation or mindfulness path without being mindful of the mindfulness practice. So what I think is really important as a tip is to measure it.

I give people an exercise of just stopping for one minute a day. And there are various metrics that we can put to it. Like one kid that I coached had autism, year old kid and he had an anger management issue and we would actually measure his level of anger management on a monthly basis.

So measure it. As a matter of fact, corporations are now spending 1 billion dollars, according to the latest research, on mindfulness. Google has a program called Search Inside Yourself.

A world-renowned program. There are many other programs like this. This makes a huge difference. We really appreciate you.

How can anyone who hears this get in touch with you? Erik Wolf: That is fantastic. Related Posts.
