This is John Goff’s story—
John is a survivor of severe physical and sexual abuse inflicted upon him for years, starting from a very young age. He saw and experienced many things that would haunt him for years. It resulted in a diagnosis of PTSD, giving him night terrors that would follow him into his early adult life. Later he was told he had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Depression, and a genetic, neurological condition called Tourette Syndrome.
John was determined not to let his past or diagnosis define him. He took to the Martial Arts and energy work; this led him on a path that would change his life forever.
John had started training in the Martial Arts early in life, still enduring physical abuse. John reasoned that the whole point of taking up Martial Arts was to protect himself from being hurt anymore; for John, this wasn’t the case! John would endure severe beatings, be continuously talked down to, and was emotionally and spiritually broken from religious indoctrination. He tried to stay sane, find any way to cope, just to feel like he was normal. He started to feel hopeless.
Here is where things began to change, and the world would not know that this abused boy would get ready to change it, and it all started from learning his first Hyung/Kata.
John realized how much he intuitively grasped and understood each movement at a cosmic level! He could feel what he described as feelings of heat, electricity, magnetism, and a surge of energy rushing through his body. The trials he would face from such experiences ranged from people telling him he was crazy, delusional, and creating an unhealthy coping mechanism; what he said wasn’t genuine or even possible. John made it a lifelong quest to prove them and the rest of the world wrong.
John works within realms and dimensions where profound truths and knowledge lay hidden. Here, John offers a new way, yet an ancient way, a chance to live and breathe again. He is a walking mystic, a mystery school unto himself. John is proof that we can all heal from the worst pain and torments, that nothing outside ourselves can truly control us. John waits for you with hands held out, ready to assist in the conscious awakening of humanity and healing of our souls. We are meant to be more, truly feel, and not be held back by the stories created for us or the stories we created!
