About Me


Since you've made it to this website, and to this specific page, I'm guessing that you've already been impacted by the Three Principles or they have piqued your interest. They have had an immense impact on my own life, and I can clearly see that I will have a lifelong fascination for their profound simplicity, as well as the incredibly rich conversations about life that they invariably foster.


This website is simply for sharing the Three Principles understanding. Please feel free to take advantage of the extensive resources available throughout the site.

My Background

I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and in July 2015, started my own freelance work as 3P Services (Procrastination Publications & Possibilities). Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/3P-Services/816461051802243. Previously I worked full time as a corporate trainer/coach, facilitator, curriculum developer, and organizational development specialist for a global travel company. You can learn more about my professional business background from my LinkedIn profile at... http://ca.linkedin.com/pub/jonelle-simms/18/297/332/

My Three Principles Learning

There's no right or wrong way in how to "learn" what the Three Principles are pointing to, whether we somehow find the deeper truths of life when we're hanging out with a wise guide or teacher, or when we discover something from facing a great challenge, or when we're just waiting at the bus stop. It's always there for us to discover, we just need to somehow "allow" ourselves to see it. In my own journey so far, I've been very fortunate to get to hang out with some lovely and wise teachers...  

  • Three Principles School with Elsie Spittle and Chip Chipman on Salt Spring Island, BC (Nov 2013 & June 2016)
  • 3PGC Conferences in Minneapolis and Los Angeles (Sep 2013, Sep 2014, Oct 2016)
  • Michael Neill's 2014 SuperCoach Academy (Jan-Sep 2014)
    • 9-month coaching training program, with a focus on the Three Principles, and with sessions held in Santa Monica, New York, and London UK
    • Including masterclasses with many of the longtime 3P practitioners
  • Innate Health/Three Principles Conference in London UK (May 2014, May 2017-virtual)
  • Michael Neill's Coaching from the Inside Out Self Study program (Oct 2014)
  • Pransky & Associates online training programs - INSIGHT and INSIGHT for Relationships (Fall of 2015)
  • Pransky & Associates Professional Training Retreat in La Conner WA (Feb 2016)
  • OneSolution Conference, Oslo, Norway - Virtual Track (May 2016)
  • Get Outside and Deepen Inside 3P Retreat in Santa Ynez with Margot Smit and Jack Pransky (Nov 2016)
  • Ease and Impact for Three Principles Groups - Live Webinar Series with Mark Howard (Aug-Dec 2016)
  • One Solution Conference, Cape Town, South Africa (Mar 2017)
  • Leadership with Insight with Ken Manning and Robin Charbit - Online Version (Apr 2017)

My 3P Services

First and foremost, I am a perfectly imperfect human being, living with my own ridiculous, made-up, personal mix and flow of secure (clear, common sense, loving) and insecure (busy, negative, judgmental, fearful) thinking. And, as with many others, I have been incredibly fortunate to have gained some personal insight into the Three Principles, allowing for the ability to navigate the inevitable "downs" of life with much more grace, and the inevitable "ups" of life with much more gratitude.


If you're interested in more support than what is already offered throughout this website, please feel free to reach out to me. I love to work with individuals and groups, whether in the context of business, or community, or in the challenges of day-to-day life. I am happy to facilitate group workshops or one-to-one conversations. You can contact me at procrastinationpublications@shaw.ca

An Amusing Look at What I Do As A Trainer and Coach

The Cookie Consideration

I often place bowls of candies on the tables in my training classes. Perhaps I should consider cookies instead?

An Amusing Thought About My Work

My job as a corporate trainer used to be taking complicated things and making them uncomplicated. I got to be pretty good at it, and loved the work. And then the Universe dropped the Three Principles (something that is essentially "unexplainable") on my lap and said, "Here, go train this"... and then the Universe laughed, and laughed, and laughed. Cool

You're so welcome Karen! My first 3P insight was that because we're all living in the illusion of our made up thinking, we're all crazy and don't know it!

You are so darn funny!!! I was pointed to this site when I googled 3P school and it addressed if you should wear a 3P's suit! Thanks for sharing so much humour!

12.04 | 22:44

Catch up... sounds good. Would love to hear how things are going. 😊

12.04 | 22:34

Hey there, welcome back! Let's touch base soon. I had a virtual ticket to the conference. Have only just been able to start watching the clips. Way, way cool! Reminds me of our walk over to the chicken place. LOL
