About Us

That Zen Life Wellness Foundation

That Zen Life Wellness Foundation, Inc. is not just any non-profit organization. It is a beacon of hope and a source of strength for those who are on their path toward recovery. Established in 2017, our foundation has been dedicated to fostering a sense of community and providing resources that promote whole health wellness.

Purpose, Philosophy, and Programs

​We champion Comprehensive Wellness and Recovery.  We promote holistic mental health and recovery support in a non-clinical setting. That Zen Life is dedicated to offering a peer-driven program for adults, ages 18 and older.  Our mental health and recovery support services are provided to the insured and uninsured.  In collaboration with Zeno Wellness Group, we offer a coordinated network of community-based services and support.  We offer peer recovery support services, individual, and/or group sessions and stress and anger management training.  That Zen Life offers educational training on mental health and substance use disorders.  Furthermore, we provide 72-hour training in becoming a peer recovery specialist.  

That Zen Life practices a trauma informed approach to include:

- the realization of the widespread impact of trauma and to understand the potential paths for recovery

- the recognition of signs and symptoms of trauma in clients

- actively seeking to resist re-traumatization

Our trauma-informed approach adheres to the following principles:

  • Safety

  • Trustworthiness and Transparency

  • Peer Support

  • Collaboration and Mutuality

  • Empowerment 

  • Humility and Responsiveness


Our programs are committed to putting a face to healthy well-living, while on the journey of recovery from Trauma, Re-Entry programs, Poor Mental Health, and Substance Use disorders.


We help build recovery communities and restorative practices through Education, Training, and Peer driven programs.


What is the definition of Wellness in a Non-Clinical Setting?

Our definition of wellness in a non-clinical setting is:

Increasing awareness of needs and remaining connected with the body and feelings, such as:

  • Basic principles of self-care

  • Basic principles of supporting client engagement and care coordination

​What is the definition of Recovery and Peer Recovery Support?

Our definition of Recovery

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential, in community and family life.

Our definition of Peer Recovery Support Specialist

A Peer Recovery Support Specialist is a person with "lived experience" who has been trained to support those who struggle with mental health, psychological trauma, or substance disorders. Their personal experience of these challenges provides peer support specialists with expertise that professional training cannot replicate.
