The Zen Life Center offers martial art’s training, physical fitness and wellness training, meditation and breathing training, business consulting, and life coaching services to enrich the mind, body, and spirit. The Zen Life Center emphasis is on developing strong individuals, families, and community members in a healthy and diverse environment. In addition, The Zen Life Center makes its services available to disadvantaged individuals—with an emphasis on girls and impoverished children. They strive to create a positive, high-energy culture and working environment in which people, planet, and profit are considered when making all business decisions. They believe they should be the change they want to see in the world.

We became a B Corp because we believe there should not be any conflict between wanting to make a very good living and wanting to use our business as a force for good. We are purpose driven and believe that true wealth comes from the contributions we are able to make to the world.

The Change We Seek®

The founders of The Zen Life Center believe businesses can simultaneously do well financially and use business as a force for good. The change they seek is a world where businesses must do good to do well, and a world where everyone has work that allows them to both make a living and make a difference. The Zen Life Center seeks to be an example for other business owners and entrepreneurs by living what they believe in.
