Arnold Siegel will be holding a Retreat Workshop at a West Coast paradise resort in Newport Beach, California on June 21, 22 and 23.

From Arnold:

Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. 
 Henry David Thoreau

Examining your life is a creative process. During the Retreat Workshop I will help you dig into:

  • who you are,
  • what you’re doing,
  • why you’re doing it,
  • where you’re going and
  • how you’re going to get there.

In the Retreat you’ll engage with a carefully designed body of intelligence, realize a big and inclusive picture of who you are and where you’re going and gain an optimistic, can-do outlook for your future. You’ll have an opportunity to set realistic short-term or long-term goals with incremental objectives and benchmarks to indicate progress. And, most importantly, you’ll gain the emotional intelligence to return to the drawing board every time you face inertia, criticism, complexity, disappointment, curve balls and contingency.

Indeed, a cultivated subjectivity as well as motivating and shaping crucial life-orienting goals, give meaning and balance to your life, poetry to your heart and character to your individuality.

Sunshine, warm ocean breezes, great food and meaningful conversation designed to help you live and experience freedom, spontaneity and joy in your life.

I promise a life-altering experience!

Arnold Siegel Kicks Off the 2019 Advanced Classes and Coursework!

Arnold Siegel will be kicking off his 2019 Advanced Classes and Coursework on January 13th and 14th in New York City!

The Advanced Classes of Autonomy and Life offer a governing philosophy, a meta-behavioral discipline reflective of the competent autonomous individuality demanded of us by America.

This from Arnold’s blog post: “One of our goals when we study autonomy and life is to correct our perspective. I refer to this effort as a quiet revolution in the prevailing culture of America’s autonomous individual.”

Participants who study autonomy and life are intent on developing their executive capacity at enlightened self-rule. Committed to personal integrity, responsibility and accountability and willing to bear the burden of individual freedom in America, they take on the challenge of effectively managing the lifelong struggle precipitated by both nature and the pressures of the external world. Through observation, study and practice, this coursework philosophically describes how, in fact, autonomy and life actually works in America. Participants come to understand when they commit to achieving “behavioral gold,” they serve both country and themselves.

For more than 30 years, Arnold Siegel has been helping individuals to lead more satisfying lives. He will be conducting his East Coast Retreat Workshop November 30th, December 1st and 2nd in Stamford, CT.

The Retreat Workshop offers a unique and extraordinary governing philosophy for practical living. It introduces participants to the discipline, perspective and freedom needed to create and live a life of their own design. Through speaking and listening, reading and writing, participants in the Retreat Workshop are better able to reevaluate and refine their goals and objectives and to craft a working and viable plan for the future.

The Retreat Workshop is also a prerequisite for the Advanced Class, which is a yearlong program.
