A Visit From Zen

Today Zen DeBrucke dropped by to visit Barry and I. She’s a metaphysical coach I wrote about the other day, who teaches people about their Internal Guidance Systems.

This is actually the first time I’ve met her in person, although we’ve talked on the phone, and she was the first ever two-on-one interview that Barry and I conducted, almost a year ago. He’s met her a few times since that, though… some of her family live in Grants Pass and she comes up to visit occasionally.

It seems like things are going really well for her, and she’s been working a lot with Jack Canfield‘s Transformational Leadership Council.

What was really interesting was sitting at a table with her, enjoying some coffee (and she’s the one who teaches that there’s joy in every moment, and every accomplishment, so a good cup of coffee should be savored with gratitude) and having her talk off-the-cuff about things we could do, just like she does with her life coaching clients.

Except that she has now decided she’s a life consultant, rather than a life coach, because she doesn’t really ask the questions a coach does.

Her real expertise is on relationships, and she apparently has some deep stuff especially for women that I’m going to have to get her to tell me sometime.

After talking and hanging out, just the three of us, we took Zen to the Wal-Mart parking lot where her dad was waiting in his motor home. Zen and he drove up together from California to visit the family, and a newborn addition that recently joined them, so it was a father-daughter road trip.

I never really thought I’d like to travel around in one of those, but it was actually pretty cool to sit in the front, watch it expand, and get the full tour, and it would be a great way to see the country. I’m just not sure I’d want to drive; I did okay with the cube truck, going back and forth from Toronto to Peterborough to move my stuff recently, but a motor home is much bigger than that.

It would probably be a real relationship-tester too. It seems like you could either grow a lot closer doing a long trip like that, or get on each others’ nerves. But I think if it’s someone that you just enjoy the adventure with, then definitely you could end up strengthening and tightening what you already have.

I know that some road trips are in the future for Barry and I, whether in a huge rig or in a car, and I’m looking forward to whatever experiences it brings my way. I also know that we’ll both enjoy those adventures, and I welcome the opportunity.
