PHILOSOPHICAL

MENTORING

WITH SIMON J. E. DREW

THIS IS ABOUT YOU

What the world needs right now is for more of us to make the conscious choice to become stronger, wiser, and more awakened.

The world is waiting for you to wake up, and such is the task of philosophy. 

My role as a philosophical mentor is to rapidly accelerate that awakening.

ANCIENT WISDOM FOR PERSONAL FLOURISHING

Philosophy literally means “love wisdom”. As a philosopher grounded in the Stoic tradition, I consider it my solemn duty to be first a true seeker and lover of wisdom, and then to share that wisdom with those who I serve. 

My students and I share the path together, and as such, we learn, grow, and are transformed together. It is in this mutual journey that the character is purified, and the soul restored to balance and harmony

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.

ARE WE COMPATIBLE?

Over the past four years, I’ve worked with an extremely diverse range of individuals from over 15 nations around the world. I’ve mentored executives, psychologists, CEOs, artists, musicians, philosophers, public servants, writers, and more. Throughout these relationships, I’ve noticed a few commonalities between people who have made powerful transformations during their time with me. 

To be compatible with the mentoring I offer, I recommend that you are:
 
  • Financially stable enough to invest in our time together
  • Psychologically mature (nothing to do with age)
  • Able to be vulnerable and honest about your strengths, weaknesses, desires, and challenges.
  • Willing to let go of the parts of yourself that are no longer serving you
  • Dedicated to the path of personal Alignment

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF

My name’s Simon Drew. I’m a philosopher in my heart, a poet by calling, and a musician in my being. Since 2017, I’ve been exploring practical philosophies for life (particularly Stoicism) on my podcast, and I’ve also been fortunate to have mentored dozens of individuals from around the world as they’ve made fundamental shifts in their character and consciousness.

My unique set of skills and interests are what make me an unmatched sparring partner for anyone who truly wants to wrestle with profound questions regarding the pursuit of flourishing. I’m looking forward to meeting you on the mat. 

THE METHOD

While I am always refining by skill as a doctor of the soul, there are a few core principles that will form the foundation of our relationship when we work together:

AIMING AT THE HIGHEST CONCEIVABLE GOOD

The philosophical path works best when you decide to aim at the highest possible good for yourself, your family, your community, and the world at large. As your mentor, I’ll join you in this shared pursuit in our sessions together as well as in our individual lives. 

MUTUAL HEALING

The Stoic philosopher Seneca humbly wrote,  “I am discussing with you troubles which concern us both, and sharing the remedy with you, just as if we were lying ill in the same hospital.”  in our sessions together, I’ll share with you what has worked for me in the spirit of mutual healing.

THE PATH OF HARMONY

A flourishing life is harmonious and balanced, like a thrilling symphony where all instruments contribute beautifully to the whole. I’ll encourage you to seek that harmony by first becoming clear on what kind of symphony you’d like to play, and then by helping you to align all the parts of yourself that would contribute meaningfully to that song.

TOTAL HONESTY

My philosophical mentoring method is one that will call upon both of us to share the heights and depths of ourselves with complete and total honesty. The power of such a vulnerable dialogue cannot be overstated, for it is the time-tested path to true inner transformation.
