Real Change From The Inside Out

Want change? Focus on what you want to have in your life, rather than what you want to go away. Studies of human behavior reveals that it takes 21 days to introduce a new habit. That’s how long it takes to transition old memory patterns to new ones. 27 Days of Change was designed with that in mind (with a little margin for error.)

Once you’ve registered, you’ll download the Six Spheres of Intention form. Making a clear agreement with yourself is the foundation of your training. Think of it as six lenses through which to look at different spheres of your life. Taken together, they’re a complete 360-degree examination that helps you decide what’s working, what’s not, and what you’d like to change.

Start with a week for preparation. Instructions are given to help you get the best start possible. A live webcast Opening Ceremony kicks things off. Then every day for 27 days, you get reminders to keep you on track. Daily Quotes and reflections bring perspective to each sphere.

The Practice Resource Library is like having your own personal change guru on your laptop, tablet or smartphone, delivering recorded audio and video talks and sessions to engage and steer you every step of the way. Choose the level of support you need: online community, weekly coaching and even personal coaching. When you’re done, get a certificate to celebrate your achievement.

The result? Everything you need to design your own personal & powerful change retreat—wherever you are.

Three Essential Keys for Successful Change

Expert Guidance

With nearly 25 years experience bringing together deep personal and collective practice for social transformation, creator angel Kyodo williams, the “change angel” knows what gets in the way of change—and how to overcome it. Her own rigorous training and practice as a Zen teacher, activist, author and thought leader prepares her to deliver the guidance you need to help you be the best you.

Proven Instruction & Time-Tested Design

Simple but powerful, 27 Days of Change is based on ancient guidelines, grounded in cutting edge research for people like you that are dedicated to helping others. It was specifically designed to support people near and far that want to commit to personal change, but don't have the time to put their lives aside to do so. Since 2006, hundreds of people have made dramatic changes in their lives following this exact program.

Now you can, too.

Supportive Community

You're not in this alone! Any kind of real change needs to happen in a supportive container. You choose the level of support you need: from a self-driven Do-It-Yourself model, to Weekly Group Coaching calls and Private Facebook Community engagement, to the powerful 1-to-1 Personal Precision ZenChange(tm) coaching angel developed based on the famous Zen face-to-face interview. Be seen & heard and get your questions answered. We'll be with you all the way.

Generosity & Open-Heartedness

An open heart is the most precious generator of the energy needed to take up the challenge of changing the world. It's the precursor of resilience and essential for true leadership. Practicing generosity makes the heart muscle strong, resilient and more available for the things you care about most.

Ethics & Harm Reduction

Bring your life into greater alignment with your purpose and values through deeper cultivation of self-responsibility and integrity. We use The Five Warrior Trainings—a compilation of all basic ethical and spiritual codes—to provide fundamental values alignment. Reducing our footprint moves us closer to being in right relationship with the planet.

Reclaiming Relationship & Patience

We all have a relationship in our lives that we would like to reclaim. Whether with an estranged parent, friend or part of our selves, the virtue of patience, coupled with the powerful lens of the Four Actions, empowers us to reframe and re-examine connections that have been frayed or lost so that we may once again find wholeness.

Effort & Behavior Change

It takes 21 days to break a habit. You get 27 to break that caffeine addiction, begin eating more healthfully, or start that new exercise regimen. Release an unwanted, unproductive or even destructive behavior to make room for more useful ways of being of service in the world. Unleash your potential to create the change you want to see in your life and the world.

Meditation & Personal Practice

Whether it's 5 minutes a day or an hour, it all adds up. Build relationship with yourself, your community and the earth through meditation. Powerful expert guidance makes it easy. Have a beloved practice that you'd like to become more committed to? Yoga. Centering Prayer. Jo Kata. Focusing. If it brings you closer to your self...Bring It!

Study & Wisdom

Focus on a topic at the intersection of deep personal practice and social transformation, create a vision board or write your personal theory of change to clarify, strengthen and deepen your commitments. You'll also get to select a Personal Challenge to focus on an area completely specific to your needs. Discover the Wisdom that already lives within you.

Why This Matters

Not everyone can go on long retreats, but we can find greater alignment in our lives by setting a clear intention to practice with intensity for a set period of time. This creates space for the deepened commitment, rigor, and yes, sacrifice, we associate with long retreats and maybe even monks! But 27 Days of Change is designed to help accomplish that right here in the midst of our lives…where it is most useful, where it truly matters.
