Max Gilreath

Retreat Leader and SPR Founder


After more than thirty (30) years of Executive Sales experience with Fortune 100 companies, Max Gilreath, SPR Founder experienced a layoff and became ill. The illness opened his eyes and mind to the poor state of his physical, emotional and spiritual being. While working with a Career Coach, he awakened to the desire to change his life and lifestyle choices, with a clear focus on life’s purpose, meaning, and priorities. He accepted his renaissance calling, for guiding, educating and inspiring people, to a complete and productive way of life, as he has done. His loss of family and friends, and experiencing suffering from cancer, has impassioned Max to advocacy for cancer prevention, wellness, and healing.


Max was born in 1956; he resides in Houston, Texas, and Costa Rica. He has two adult sons, Vincent and Anthony and three beautiful granddaughters, Taryn, Alena, and Havana. Co-author Over 50 Starting Over Transition Passion Transformation “Book”

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
