“Simon models an unflinching honesty that dismantles denial, self-deception, and artifice without falling into shame or simplistic blame. He exposes the dark within the light, while never failing to also recognize the light within the darkest places.
His unblinking assessments are healing and ultimately forgiving because of his ability to hold and honor human complexity and imperfection. His capacity to meet and attune to others and understand their inevitable failings conveys a fundamental kindness and acceptance.
He sees what we can be while keeping us honest. He holds all accountable, including himself, yet shuns obvious judgments and self-righteousness. This creates a safety that can help others to question their limiting beliefs and find the courage to change.
The healing nature of his intense presence arises from his awareness of spirit and the profound and powerful heart that underlies everything he does.”
