Cultivating Presence

in all aspects of our daily life

Serge Simonet

Online Practice Group -

1 hour per week over 1 month

A significant part of our difficulties and emotional pain in life comes from the disconnection from ourselves, our body, our emotions, our needs, our relationships, our life, the world. What was once, most probably, the "best" coping strategy in face of a particularly challenging situation in our life, can sometimes become a significant obstacle in running a happy, flourishing and meaningful life.

 

The transformation journey out of this is a progressive process of re-connection to ourselves, to others, to the world and eventually to our natural resilience allowing us to deal effectively with all aspects of our life.

This monthly practice group provides a safe space of learning, practice and exchange to support you in this journey. It is designed to help you develop and strengthen your ability to be and stay present to yourselves, to your natural resilience, and to what is, whatever the external circumstances.

About me

IIn the midst of a very successful career as a Senior Manager in a multinational corporation,  I came to the realization - through a personal crisis as it often happens - that I was carrying along a lot of unresolved bags of past hurts, fears, shame and sadness that made me feel flawed, in-adapted and unlovable. Not only did I feel unhappy, but I largely spread that  around me in my family, my relationships, my work .....  and clearly got myself in my own way of  running a meaningful, happy and flourishing life.

My path out of this has been - and continues to be - a journey of self-discovery, peace,  respect and progressive congruence with who I truly am. I learned to connect, understand and care for myself. To find my inner peace. To gradually align to my "Soul Purpose", this sense of why I am here for and what sort of positive contribution I could make to this world.

On this path I encountered wounds, but also conditioning, beliefs (false and limiting, about myself and the world), opinions and judgements from others, mainstream culture, doubts and fear of encountering oneself authentically, fear of failing, fear of "getting it all wrong"..

 

l also encountered pure joy, bliss, freedom, peace and authentic love.

Spirituality has proven to be a great -  and very patient - travel companion. Not religion, but this type of grounded spirituality that connects us to "something" broader than us. A bigger picture, a larger perspective where things can start to make sense somehow.

Progressively, I allowed myself to re-connect to the high sensitivity that I had as a child, this ability to sense things, energies, people, trees, animals and this sort of common magic field weaved by and through all forms of life. I allowed myself be touched by them and by my life experiences. Quite a journey as I had tried so hard and for so long to numb and hide this sensitivity that I perceived as a flaw and a big stumbling block on my way to a successful and happy life in the "grown-up" world.

I gradually reconnected with my dreams and passions as a child : nature and horses. I have the chance now to live with them and day after day, they continue to help me heal, open my heart, unveil and express the best version of myself.

Throughout the years, I met great people who played for me the critical role of "beacons of light", helping me stay on course through the traps and challenges. I left the corporate world and now in turn I offer my experience and support to those taking on a similar journey.

I have a certification in Systemic Coaching, in Neuro-cognitive & Behavioural Approach (ANC), I am trained in Family & Systems Constellations and in Hosres Assisted Systemic Coaching (HASC), and a long pratice inTransactional Analysis,  in Enneagram in in Zen buddhism in the tradition of the Vietnamese Master Thich Nhat Hanh.

I also work in organisations where I help identify and remove human related roadblocks in the way of their performance and growth.
