Facilitator / Counselor / Acupuncturist

40 Years of Zen is a state of art retreat center located in the east hills near Kent, WA. Our program utilizes neurofeedback and specific physiological measures as tools for peak mental performance, to generate life-changing outcomes. In addition to our cutting edge technology, there is a strong focus on mental processes, healthy environment, proper nutrition and supplementation to maximize the effects of the program. Clients spend five days on site with us as we provide custom designed psychophysiological modalities that are exclusive to 40 Years of Zen. Clients also form a tight knit online community where they continue to grow and learn with the 40 Years of Zen team and the founder, Dave Asprey. Please see our website for further details: www.40yearsofzen.com We are looking to expand our team with a person who has experience as a guide. This role is not about providing traditional therapy as our foundational program has a set structure in place. 40 Years of Zen’s program is about allowing each client to have their own experience, and being there to provide support and guidance when a client comes upon something unexpected, positive or negative. Your ability to work with clients from all walks of life, varying levels of mental acumen, and degrees of success are key to providing a supportive and holistic experience to everyone that walks through the door. The client base ranges from CEOs of large publicly held companies aspiring to reach the next level of their development, to individuals who want to perform better in their work, lives, and relationships. As part of the training process - memories, emotions and experiences naturally surface. Some are commonplace, while others can be very traumatic or profound. With a full five days of training, clients have amazing and insightful transformations. This position would be part-time, working one full week every 3- 4 weeks to relieve our full time facilitator.
