In Honor of My Friend and Dear Brother, David Simon.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you today the news that Dr. David Simon has passed away. David has been my friend, partner, teacher, trusted colleague, and younger brother for more than twenty years. He has touched my heart, influenced the way I think, and expanded my spirit. David approached life from a place of pure potentiality and unlimited possibilities. His wisdom, courage, and love will continue to inspire all of us for decades to come.

In his books and workshops, David loved to share poems from spiritual masters who lived many centuries ago yet whose beautiful insights into love and our eternal nature continue to resonate with so many people today. David’s favorite poems were reminders that while we appear to be separate, limited individuals, we are all expressions of an infinite divinity. Here are a few beautiful lines from the poet David called “my beloved Hafiz”:

The Sun Never Says

all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me.”
what happens
with a love like that —
It lights the whole world.

As a talented physician and author, loving father, husband, and dear friend, David shared his unique gifts with the world. Through his dedication and authenticity, he helped so many people go beyond their limited perspective of themselves and reconnect to the love, joy, and peace of their true selves.

I have felt privileged to work closely with David for many years, and I am grateful that we have had the opportunity to develop seminars, retreats, and programs on mind-body healing and spirituality. While David, as he would put it, has now let go of his temporary human disguise to merge again with the unbounded ocean of consciousness, the gifts that he gave so freely during his life will continue to benefit and inspire everyone he touched through his words, wisdom, and heart.

    I found myself today coming upon a meditation by David Simon on youtube from the Chopra Center. 'Intention of the Heart' ... a perfect message. In gratitude to both David and Deepak.

    A week ago I received Mantras & Mandalas in the mail. Being a hospice volunteer I showed particular interest in Mahmarityunjaja Meditative Chant, the death defying chant, with David Simon. I meditated daily with this chant until the morning of January 30 because I had family visiting from January 30 - February 1. The song played repeatedly in my thoughts throughout the day until morning of January 31. On February 3rd I heard about David Simons death and had no idea he was going through the dying process during this time. Coincidence or Synchronicity? I thank David for the gift ~ Namaste
