Your Self-doubts & Fears Take a Backseat  When You're Focused on Creating Something that Truly YOU                 

Hi, I’m Dr. Ruben, Zone14 founder, a counter-culture community embracing a model excellence driven by well-being at all cost. 


One of my main drivers for creating ZONE 14 is witnessing the wave of ongoing messages we receive that leads us to believe we are never enough.

No matter how many A’s we earn, trophies we win, clubs we belong to, diplomas we acquire, money we make, etc, it seems like there is always something else we need to do to be worthy of respect.

It is time for an alternative to the model of excellence based on "winning at all cost." This outdated model has and continues to lead us further into darkness.

It is time for a new normal, a model of excellence based on well-being at all cost!

Zone 14 is a learning community dedicated to that mission and doing it in a tolerant, inclusive, and purposeful way.

If you think we are ripe for a new age of personal and collective reform and get motivated by our mission, then subscribe to The Zone14 Edge below and stay up to date with our #TheDigDeepShow Podcast interviews and our newly launched YouTube channel.

It is not about the American obsession with winning at any cost, which has killed so many spirits and diminished so many lives. It's about the life-giving journey toward claiming the birthright called 'selfhood' and growing into wholeness... if you are interested - and all us of should be - in growing into your full potential and supporting others to do the same, Zone14 is for you.

~ Parker Palmer,  author of Let Your Life Speak, The Courage to Teach and A Hidden Wholeness.
