Who We Are
An International Teaching Organization
ZenMind Academy is a non-profit corporation born out of the vision of former monk Rajan Shankara.
ZenMind Academy delivers positive development and educational instruction to traumatized and disadvantaged youth using our system of Sustainable Performance—education of psychology, philosophy, meditation, mental acuity and peace, physical health and spiritual wellbeing.
ZenMind Academy Curriculm
A 7-step foundational approach to self-development.
ZenCore is the bedrock of a student’s day to day routine and practical application regarding our daily lives.
Managing our body and mind in order to get the best return on our investments.
ZenEnergy allows the students to learn what mindfulness means using concrete terms and concepts instead of the often abstract spiritual components coming out of scripture or spiritual guides.
Our philosophical system of Eastern psychology.
ZenTheory allows the abstract philosophical matters of zen to be revealed, discussed and analyzed. ZenTheory uses Eastern methods of Cognitive Behavioral Techniques and NLP—Neuro-Linguistic Programming—in order to define the world inside of us and how we can best control our reactions to the world outside of us.
Resources to make the Zen executive even better.
ZenPerformance is a body of research taken from elite athlete coaches, to philosophers and economic strategists, and the accumulation of their experience with effective and powerful populations. The biggest question to answer here is, “How can we repeat success and not overwhelm the student?”
The actual step-by-step methodology for meditation, which no student has ever failed.
ZenPractice is the application of our meditation methodology—from abstract to concrete, every student can succeed with our practical methods. Rajan Shankara takes students through small steps in order to end up at a larger goal. This mediation system is designed for any level, any schedule, any time.
The core meditation practice revealing a student’s mastery of mind.
ZaZen is ZenMind’s Master’s program allowing an intermediate mind to test its capacity for mastery. Several courses need to be taken first in order to understand our ZaZen curriculum.
