“ Having been involved in a myriad of different forms of deep work and self-development over the years, Simon’s coaching and the accompanying Right Livelihood Quest stands apart. In fact, it is my belief that the Quest is in a league of its own. This body of work created by Simon is the most transformational I have ever experienced. I could try to put into words the experience I had at the Quest and the loving support I received from Simon at every step of the way – before, during, and after the process. However, it would pale in comparison to the actual experience; Simon is an honorable magician who always seems to know when to push the envelope and when to give some breathing room. Simply put – it was the deepest and most profound personal work I have ever done and as much as I would like to say it “changed” me, it didn’t. A better description would be that it re-introduced me TO me. It was a coming home to what I really am rather than a departure of what was. And I cannot even begin to explain how delicious that feels.”
Why I Do What I Do.
I deeply believe in our individual and collective potential of awakening to all of who we are. I believe in living divided no more. I believe in being connected to a sense of purpose and expressing it everywhere one finds themselves. I believe that inner work is a path to unleashing our skills, gifts, and creative spark towards an awakened, fulfilled, and meaningful life. I believe that when leaders model such a way of showing up and invite their people to bring their hearts and souls into the workplace – their organizations thrive.
Why You Would Want to Work with Me.
You – and possibly your organization – are looking for a partner for the next phase(s) of your journey. Someone who is committed, passionate about what they do, willing and able to hold you to your highest standards, highlight your blind spots, amplify your skills/gifts/talents, and stand in the fire with you. Someone who will walk with you the journey of awakening the passion, creativity, vision, dreams, and the creative spark – yours, and of the people in your organization.
Why I Would Want to Work with You.
You are ready for the journey. Possibly, your organization is ready too (or, perhaps, not ready, yet open and willing). You know this journey will have challenges along the way, yet are willing to look beyond it, into what can be possible when showing up in a full, open, and awakened heart and soul. You know that the “good old ways” of doing life don’t work anymore. You are ready to open up and embrace a deeper, richer, more challenging, and more fulfilling way of showing up in the world. You are ready to awaken – yourself, your people, and your organization.
