Advertising, Meditation, Psychology and Tibetan Sand Mandalas do not typically “go together” like shoes and socks. But that’s me!
I’m 44 and live in Dublin, Ireland. From an early age, I have had a healthy desire to understand what drives our behaviour and why we become who we are.
Living in this western capitalist world, courtesy of where I was born, I’ve found myself creating 2 indie advertising companies. As much as I love my work in advertising, I need more than that. I have a deep longing to add meaning to my life, and I can’t help but wonder all the time about the bigger questions…… What’s it all about?
For over 2 decades now I have been on a quest to understand the deeper workings of my psyche. In college, I studied the works of pioneering motivational psychologist Abraham Maslow. I started to practice meditation regularly 20 years ago. Perhaps most significantly of all, I began a journey of extensive training in Transpersonal Psychology that lasted 15 years.
Dr. Stanislav Grof has spent 6 decades distilling a map of the mind that I have explicitly adopted into everything I do. I proudly certified in his school of training in 2015. Additionally, I have organically developed a deep meditation technique involving the creation of geometric sand mandalas, and hosted over 50 workshops offering this unique way to deeply explore consciousness. I am a Guest Teacher with the international psychology school I trained with, and have hosted weeklong retreats in Ireland, Austria and Tasmania.
Working with hundreds of people in expanded states of consciousness, together with my deepening insight into the mechanics of the advertising industry, has resulted in an unlikely marriage. It has provided me with a unique perspective through which I attempt as best I can to understand how our psyches work and how they are influenced.
In recent years, particularly with the rise of algorithms, I have devoted most of my free time to reading, researching and understanding the inordinate hold our devices now have over our precious psyches.
Bringing groups of people together in the real world for meaningful inner experiences drives me. I have a sincere belief that each of us has a special resource inside ourselves. You could call this your common sense, or your higher self, your intuition or simply your gut feeling. We all have this still small voice within. This is the source of our most creative ideas. There is an inner intelligence inside each of us that holds the potential to guide us through any challenge, reveal insights and enable breakthroughs.
HeadCleaner is an antidote, a counterbalance to the tsunami of distractions that relentlessly bombard us. Ultimately, my mission is to share the experience with as many people as I can. My intent is to support people to get the time, space and permission to disconnect from their devices. This can facilitate a graceful reconnection with the single greatest resource inside us all. The inner light of our own awareness.
I believe if we all simply lived from here, we would live in a beautiful world!
“It is a very good meditation overall and I felt great after it. Really relaxed and connected.”
“The session was really enjoyable and I came away feeling centred and relaxed.”
“I really liked the combination of visual and audio. I meditate most days already but this approach brought a whole new depth to the meditation experience.”
“ The visuals were very impressive and the sound really immersed oneself into the moment.”
“Over the years, I have attended many meditation workshops and I currently meditate for about 20 minutes most mornings. However, the combination of talk, visual and audio was a very different experience and really helped me to zone out.”
THE MORE WE EXPERIENCE PEOPLE AS DEHUMANISED REPLICATORS OF MEMES, THE MORE LIKELY WE ARE TO TREAT ONE ANOTHER AS MACHINES TO BE OPERATED RATHER THAN AS PEERS WITH WHOM TO COLLABORATE

The morning we spent with Geoff helped us learn how to stop our minds and live in the moment. Giving us life long tools that we can call on at any stage.
I would recommend “Headcleaner” to anyone, for personal gain or company gain, it was a great, relaxing and a revitalizing experience.
