COURSE STRUCTURE

TODAY

Building A Firm Foundation

Before we start this journey together, I’ll give you some important ideas and strategies for how you can get the most out of this course. 

TOMORROW

Wisdom Foraging with Marcus Aurelius

We’ll kick off the course with a powerful exercise used by the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius to gain clarity on his personal ideals, and to reconnect with deep wisdom he’d learned throughout his life. 

DAY 3

Summoning the God Within with Seneca

For day three, I’ll encourage you to contemplate some wisdom from the philosopher Seneca about the divinity within each of us. Whether you believe Seneca or not, this exercise will allow you to think differently about your own capacities, as well as the way you treat yourself and others.

DAY 4

Balanced Self-Appraisal
with Epictetus

Epictetus will be our guide for this exercise, and with his help, I’ll encourage you to participate in a healthy and balanced self-appraisal, noting both your strengths and your weaknesses.

DAY 5

Composing Your Personal Ideal

I’ll guide you as you create your own personal ideal by meditating and journalling on the person you’d like to become and the life you’d like to live in six fundamental areas of your life (what I call “the six major pieces of the life puzzle”).

DAY 6

Pulling It All Together

By this stage, you’ll have composed a compelling vision of the person you’d like to become, and the ideal that you’re aiming at. I’ll round out the course by giving you my best strategies for how you can move closer to this ideal every day.

SIMON J. E. DREW

PHILOSOPHICAL MENTOR | POET | MUSICIAN

Hi, I’m Simon! I’m a philosophical mentor, poet, author, musician, and host/founder of The Walled Garden Podcast and Community.  I have a Bachelor of Music, and I’m currently studying for a Master of Divinity.

Since 2015, I’ve been exploring the timeless principles found in the philosophical school of Stoicism. My podcasts have now been downloaded over 3 million times, but most importantly, I’ve been able to help thousands of global citizens to live a life of deep meaning and full engagement. 

Through my philosophical mentoring practise, I’ve helped dozens of individuals from around the globe to gain a more sophistocated philosophical understanding, and to invest that understanding into their path toward a deeply meaningful life.

I've found Simon's coaching to be invaluable during a transitional period in my life. Whether you're looking for life guidance from a Stoic perspective or simply some deep and interesting philosophical conversations, Simon is always able to provide, and I've walked away from each conversation feeling refreshed and with some good advice to chew on. I can't recommend him enough.

If you are looking for a plainspoken, philosophical and deeply practical guide — Simon is your man. Our time together has created an immense amount of clarity about my goals, and the insight and motivation to effectively pursue them. All with a foundation in philosophical virtue, not ego and materialism. I have referred several friends to Simon and will continue to do so.

Simon has all the traits of an excellent life coach; he is an active listener and gives me the time and space to say what I needed during our sessions. His coaching approach is not prescriptive, but I've always left the session with a clear idea of what I need to work on afterwards.

I started working with Simon at the start of this year and it has been awesome to have a dialogue with someone so dedicated to helping other people excel. It’s rare to get candid feedback on one’s direction in life and Simon has been able to provide that in a way that both prompts me to think critically and encourages me to keep striving.

I’ve been working with Simon for about a month and a half and can’t overstate how much of a positive impact it’s had on my day-to-day life and my overall well-being. Working with Simon personally I’m given practical tools, but customized and tailored for my own personal life and situations.
