Imagine a Life Without Fear, Blame or Shame... Create a Life of Purpose and Joy, Now

Achieve unshakable confidence. Live your highest purpose.

Acharya and Zen Roshi:

Dr. Fleet Maull, PhD

Most of us struggle with our confidence and feelings of unworthiness.


It doesn't need to be that way.


Discover deep down... That there is absolutely nothing wrong with you.


You are not broken.


You are unconditionally good and worthy of love and success.


You are needed and your life has deep meaning and purpose.


Over three decades ago, Fleet Maull sat in an isolation cell in a US prison facing a possible life sentence for drug trafficking.


Just before dawn after a sleepless night on the edge of despair, he reached deep within himself and found the strength to make an ironclad commitment to never give up... never give up on himself, his family or life.


Later that day he was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison and had to face the fact that his life as he'd known it, was over.


He also had to face the fact that his nine-year-old son would now grow up without a father.


That night, again unable to sleep, he made a second commitment...


Fleet vowed to find a way to create a better legacy for a son than just a dad that went to prison.


The Radical Responsibility® philosophy was born at this pivotal moment in Fleet's life. It evolved over the next 14 years as he followed through on both those commitments.


Fleet realized the only way forward was to stop blaming, justifying and holding anyone or anything outside of himself responsible for where he was.


He was no longer going to be a victim.


Transformation began by taking radical ownership for every single choice and circumstance in his life.


Fleet moved beyond the idea of blame and shame entirely.


With good behavior, Fleet was released after serving only 14 years of a 30-year sentence.


During his time he helped hundreds of his fellow prisoners turn their lives around through education, addiction recovery and meditation.


He co-founded the first hospice program inside a prison during the height of the AIDS crisis.


He also founded two non-profits and catalyzed two national movements...


National Prison Hospice Association launched a prison hospice movement that now includes over 70 hospice programs in U.S. state and federal prisons. It radically improves the quality of end of life care for prisoners and their families.


And Prison Mindfulness Institute has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of prisoners and thousands of public safety professionals through mindfulness-based emotional intelligence programs.


Since his release in 1999, Fleet has continued building a legacy of social innovation and transformation.


His work has bettered the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.


He is a visionary social entrepreneur, global peacemaker and renowned meditation teacher empowered in both Zen and Tibetan Buddhist traditions.


Fleet met with Pope Francis and other Roman Catholic officials during the Buddhist-Catholic Dialogue on Suffering, Liberation and Fraternity.


He has also worked with Rwandan government officials to launch an international bearing witness retreat and peace initiative aimed at preventing future genocides.


Fleet has been a leader of the annual Zen Peacemaker bearing witness retreats at the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau for the past 18 years. He also leads other social transformation and peacemaking retreats and training throughout the world.


Dr. Fleet Maull's Radical Responsibility® philosophy born in an isolation jail cell 34 years ago has created profound transformation for tens of thousands of people, just like you, all over the world.


And now you can experience this same life-changing training from the comfort of your home or anywhere else you can use your computer, tablet or smartphone.

“Fleet Maull draws on his unique life journey and remarkable expertise, sharing with us how we can find equanimity and compassion in the maelstrom of our days. Radical Responsibility offers a sound and original blueprint for a life well lived.”

—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

Radical Responsibility

...will help you create deep relationships, an abundance mindset and unconditional confidence in your life.


Unconditional confidence is explained in the course, and it will be a huge "ah hah" moment for you.


Radical Responsibility is about giving you the insight, tools and capacity to choose a better way to live.


Live at choice. Not from the fear and survival-based part of your brain. 


Right now, your past negative conditioning is destructively running the show.


Learn to thrive from this unique course from the comfort of your home or office.


We invite you to take a leadership position in your own life today and create limitless possibility for yourself.


You can work your way through this in-depth course at your own pace, watching each module as many times as you like.


This way you will fully ground yourself in the many skills and practices Fleet presents in this unique, transformative course.

“Radical Responsibility is about living from choice. Letting go of the idea of blame altogether and moving beyond the fear and survival-based habits that undermine your success and happiness.”


“After training with Fleet, my life is easier, more fun and I have more clarity and I now get the things I want most out of my relationships, my life purpose and my heart.”

    See people through the lens of kindness, understanding and compassion. Become an empowered and enriching presence for everyone you meet.

  • Presence in the Moment

    Learn to appreciate and thrive in stillness. Let go of old fear-based patterns that keep you busy and distracted so you can find joy in what you are doing right now.

What you will stop:

  • Sabotaging yourself with Emotional Triggers

    No longer be pushed around by intense emotions and habitual reactions. Instead, learn to make the shift from being reactive to responding with confidence.

  • Being a Victim and Feeling Helplessness

    Learn to own and embrace your circumstance and choices. Your destiny is ultimately determined by the choices you make.

  • Wasting Time in Drama

    Learn to recognize when you are hooked in negative drama and how to step out of it. Save your vital time and energy for the actions that can actually create positive change in your life.

  • Getting Stuck in Confusion

    Learn to be decisive and take the right action quickly and with confidence.

  • Blaming Yourself, Others and "Things"

    Learn the difference between ownership and blame, liberating yourself from the culture of shame and blame. Focus your time and energy where you have the most influence...with your own thoughts, attitudes and behaviors!

“If we spend one minute above the line, operating from choice, that one minute can cancel out a lifetime of operating from the fear-based survival program in our brain, it can make all the difference.”

    “In my opinion, Fleet Maull is one of the clearest, most grounded, most compassionate thinkers and implementers of the principles of mindfulness and emotional intelligence in the world. He has a gift for translating inner work into relevant action, and an unparalleled generosity of spirit.”

    Gabriel Kram, Founder at Restorative Practices Alliance

    “Because we’ve been raised in a blame-based culture we think responsibility and accountability equal blame...either blaming others or myself. Here we are talking about completely transcending, transforming, and stepping out of the blame-based mindset and culture altogether. We are talking about liberating and empowering ourselves by embracing Radical Responsibility and choice.”​
