I first metÂ Garrison CohenÂ in Bali last year. We did Improv, played frisbee, and had many a deep conversation.
He has an amazing ability to make people feel special and important. I first realized this during Thanksgiving last year:
Garrison hosted an American thanksgiving celebration in Bali for 30-40 people from around the world. Before we started the meal, he gave a speech about the history and importance of the holiday. The result was that people felt privileged to be a part of our group and the celebration.
Garrison has been studying relationships his whole life, and is one of Americaâ€™s top dating and relationship coaches for men and women. He was former co-founder of AuthenticWorld Media, and hosts the new podcastÂ Looking for You. He is an award winning filmmaker, speaker, writer and honorary member of the Society of Leadership & Success.
His mission (as I understand it) is to help people move past the adolescent phase into their full adulthood so they can have authentic, sexy, enlightened, and drama free relationships.
