Biography

Called “the most intriguing African-American Buddhist” by Library Journal, Rev. angel Kyodo williams Sensei is an acclaimed author, speaker, Master Trainer, transformation teacher and coach that uses her unique insight into liberation to draw forth essential, practical lessons for living a more powerful, authentic life. Her critically acclaimed book, Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace was hailed as “an act of love” by Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker, and “a classic” by Buddhist pioneer Jack Kornfield.

She integrates 20 years of deep personal practice, spiritual training and leadership experience as a Zen priest with a praxis of mindfulness meets embodiment. As founder of the Center for Transformative Change, she coined the name of this emerging field. Her 3rd Way Trainings reinvents and puts leadership back where it belongs: in the body. The result? More embodied leadership, effective organizations and aligned movements. Her 27 Days of Change online program supports changemakers in inner meets outer change worldwide. A powerful communicator of Embodied Presence, Leadership and Transformation, angel notes, “Without inner change, there can be no outer change. Without collective change, no change matters.”
