I have never forgotten how it felt, in the midst of a 16-year corporate career, to be walking around as a card-carrying member of the Walking Dead. It’s been my non-negotiable commitment over the last 20 years to never live like that again – and to do what I can to be sure no one else does either – that has helped me build a successful 2nd career as Your Relationship Architect, Author, Public Speaker, and Retreat Leader.
Perhaps you can relate. The one thing I had going for me in those days that kept my heart semi-alive was my family. However, I was such a workaholic that my wife Sarah (who I’ve been privileged to be with for 33 years) and my kids rarely got much time with me. When they did, they tended to get the flat, “dead” version of me.
Fortunately, at the age of 35, full physical and emotional breakdowns led me to see that I had virtually no real relationship with myself…particularly with my most authentic Self. My marriage was good…but it was really lacking a crucial element: my full, opened heart giving and receiving everything. Without that, relationship ends up being the equivalent of a house with great curb appeal, but when you open the front door, it’s completely empty on the inside. At that point in my life, I didn’t even have good curb appeal…I was constantly exhausted and weighed 285 pounds!
Over the last 22 years, I’ve been on a self-renaissance facilitated by many transformational workshops, retreats, and intensive studying & training with Spiritual Masters and top-drawer Change Agents/Coaches. Through these experiences, I deeply re-connected to a profoundly abiding love for my Spirit, and to the Divine, to which I have devoted my life and career.
To-date, Geoff has worked with hundreds of private clients and couples; has led over 300 workshops; facilitated numerous life-altering retreats around the country for men, women and couples; and has spoken at numerous live and online events. Geoff is also delighted to debut his first book, Built To Last: Designing & Maintaining A Passionate, Loving and Lasting Relationship, to be published by Crescendo Publishing, in July 2015.
With the continued blessing of my wife, and my now-grown sons, I remain devoted to coaching individuals and couples toward designing and building the relationship with themselves and each other that expands connection, healing, and creates harmony with their Spirits’ dreams that have simply been neglected and/or forgotten.
