Exploring Our Values Workshop

Columbus Day Weekend, October 10-12, 2014 Presented by Dr. Sidney B. Simon


See updated flight information on the details and registration page

Here’s a special note from Sid on the upcoming workshop.  We like to call it the Cheerleader Letter.  I just wonder if we can bring Dr. Simon back for a 5 day workshop in the summer of 2015.

Dear Friends of Past Simon Workshops, 

I am so excited about the prospects of returning to Kirkridge for a Weekend Workshop on those sacred dates from the past, Columbus Day Weekend. 

High among my anticipated joys will be seeing a lot of you again.   It’s been too long, and I’m roaring to come out of retirement.  I’ve started to make a list of the most significant Concepts, Theories, and Strategies from  my total repertoire.  

Some will be brand new, because I haven’t been sitting around in some Golf Court. I’ve been reading and meeting with people who have something to teach me.  You will reap the benefits. 

And of course, there will be some “refresher exercises,” the ones I think are so damn important it won’t hurt any of us to visit them again. 

As always, there will be the safety of anyone’s right to pass, and that we have a room free of negative criticism. 

You’ll notice that this Old Guy still has the fire in his belly and the physical strength to run this intellectual marathon. Even at 86, last season I ran my Sanibel Library’s Stories for Grownups, without  a cheat sheet.  

Email me if you have any questions or even any suggestions, as long as you give me, too, the right to pass on your idea, too.   We’ve built something unique and marvelous in our years of working together.   Check out the SIMONWORKSHOPS.COM website for Registration Information.  (Kudos to Dale Bennett who has done all the Computer Work for us, and thanks to Sarah “Sam” Elliston who is handling registration for us.) 

Come back for another taste, and I sure as hell know it won’t be the last one, either. 

Hello forever, 

Sid Simon


Do You:
…Feel confusion and conflict in the areas of money, love, time or recreation?
…Wonder about your life choices?
…Search for more meaningful conections with the people in your life?

The key point to keep in mind about values is that clarifying them energizes everything concerned with  the decision. If you feel stuck, committing to and applying values releases fresh energies, which then attract success, achievement, and well-being.

 The Workshop will begin Friday night, with dinner, and end on Sunday, after lunch. Just like in the old days. I’ve been itchy to bring you an up-to-date Simon Workshop, and still include some of the very special things from former workshops, as well. Yes, there will be music, and there will be Saturday night of Skin Nourishment, and yes, there will Progoffian Writing, and trios, quartettes and one on one exercises.

I’m interested, these days, in several very, very important ideas.

1. Getting clear on what is really important?  What do I really, really want to spend my time and energy on in this crazy world surrounding us?  How do we resist the hustling trying to make us buy what we don’t have.

2. What is worth leaving as a legacy for the kids we still have some influence on?

3. What do we want to do with the rest of our lives that makes a difference?

4. I want to take a serious look at Systematic Suicide and Overall Wellness, looking at what we are doing to ourselves, and what to do about what we see in the other people we love?

5. And I would be open to some topics you would like us to address.
