Simon Spire, MA
CONTEMPLATIVE TEACHER | HUMAN DEVELOPMENT FACILITATOR | INTERDISCIPLINARY EXPLORER
Welcome! I’m Simon.
I work with people one-on-one within a framework that draws upon depth psychology, contemplative and meditative traditions, somatic listening, and models of
adult human development.
The next in-person Emergent Quest will run September 15–December 8 in North Carolina. Learn all about the program here. This program is an opportunity to fully embrace the unfolding initiatory journey that is your life. With a special emphasis on discovering and living your most authentic direction and offerings in the world, this journey amplifies what’s waiting to emerge on the continuing path into one’s deeper nature and greater purpose. Up to eight participants will gather in-person over the course of three months as we move toward a solo, full-day wilderness-based quest based on the pattern of the pan-cultural vision quest. An informational group call will be held via Zoom on August 18 for those who would like to learn more about the program.
Applications are now open for the Rising Earth Fellowship at the Eco-Institute in Chapel Hill, NC. I've had the pleasure of accompanying fellows on their 10-week, residential journeys of discovery since 2015. The Eco-Institute has now launched a new and enhanced version of this program, to which I’m excited to be contributing through program development, participant mentorship, and facilitation of an Emergent Quest-like group journey woven into participants’ 10-week stay. The Fall 2019 Immersion begins in September and runs into November. About 12 fellows are accepted each season, and this year generous scholarships are available for participants. For more information, visit the Eco-Institute site.
I'm happy to announce that I've begun recording new music in a gradual process expected to continue unfolding over the coming months. I look forward to sharing some new music when it’s fully cooked!
