About Ian Matthews

¨See the world as yourself, and have faith in the way things are. Help others as yourself; then you can care for all things.¨ 

Zenbok Founder Ian Matthews

For over two decades Ian has been a globally effective and sought-after Integrative Wellness Specialist. His revolutionary programs bring a new sense of energy and purpose to organisations and people worldwide, generating impressive resilience and performance returns.

His preceding work included 18-years as a British Army Royal Signals Warrant Officer, and a former Cisco EMEA Training Program Manager. It was during this latter period that he began to notice the
adverse affects of prolonged stress in high pressure environments. He actively sought and later taught mindful strategies and tools to meet these increasing performance demands.

His work vision aims to provide a personalised self-care program for every single human being. Ian has held audience with Mindful Leaders such as Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) founder Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Mindfulness-Based Organisational Education (MBOE) creator, Mark Leonard.
