or about The Zen Lawyer Workshop?
The Zen Lawyer
For lawyers who want to be the best they can be, personally and professionally.
“Zen” roughly translates as “reality.” The goal of Zen practice is to experience your life as it actually is. It is about developing an inquisitiveness about life. It is about preferring to be authentic rather than striving to be perfect. Zen lawyers have an honest presence that makes people feel safe, heard, and seen.
To help lawyers discover the power of mindfulness, I wrote the book The Zen Lawyer and developed the Core Truth Method.
The Core Truth Method helps jurors have a direct experience of the truth of five core areas: physical, emotional, logical, motivational and Zen. The workshop includes a fusion of knowledge from theater arts, martial arts and mindfulness training, taught by Joshua Karton, Jay Rinsen Weik, and myself, Michael Leizerman.
I have used the techniques from the Core Method Workshop, as well as in The Zen Lawyer, to repeatedly obtain justice for my clients with meaningful settlements and many record verdicts. I look forward to sharing these methods with you.
