PRE-MADONNA MEDITATION WORKSHOP
March 24, 2014 – Mt. Madonna, CA
We will begin a deep process of awakening the inner Being of us. This awakening will open the door to many insights that allow for the beauty of Life…eternal. We will be moving into the Karma of this lifetime and how to allow it to guide you into Love.
If you are joining us for the Retreat at Mt Madonna and would like to work with Siraj in process as a “pre-retreat experience,” you are most welcome to join us. We begin the Pre-Madonna Workshop at 9:00 a.m. and lunch will be provided during the day. The donation for this experience is $85.00 (parts of this donation are tax deductible). Gregory will send you a receipt for your income taxes. *Due to the financial commitment required to plan events of this size, please ensure that you are prepared to attend this Workshop before registering as all donations for Workshops must be prepaid and are non-refundable for any reason.
(Note: If you will be joining us for the Mt Madonna Retreat but will not be coming to the Pre-Madonna Workshop, please meet us in the evening at 7:00 p.m.)

Everyone has “Karma.” Karma is not a matter of vengeance from God. Karma is more visceral and emerges as our life purpose and, hence, meaning. To understand the vast meaning of our daily life and to be able to place it in a position that allows us to live more compassionately is the key to this Retreat. We will be delving beyond the emotional fears of the human experience and pointing our attentions inwardly.
There is a whole language to the state of Being that makes up our Karma. Everything we have ever been or have done in previous experiences of life comes to play in our current living. Meaning occurs as we realize the virtue of our life through the merit of our living. Everything matters, everyone is important and everything we touch…touches us back in many different ways.
If you are willing to exceed your human fears and gratifications…if you seek beyond emotion and passion and human “love” just does not fit the inner call…then you may benefit from the experience of this Retreat.
This is a rare privilege to work upon the very meaning of your life.

MEDITATION WORKSHOP – WHO AM I?
May 24, 2014 – Encinitas, CA
Gregory will be presenting two new Meditations that will begin the process of exposing the question of WHO AM I? These will be more exercises that will require the student to actively engage in energies and inner states that reveal the meaning of living in the human body. There is Karma about all of this that all of us must live within and abide through. Gregory will be helping you understand the limits and the necessities of living with the Human…but not as a human.
This Workshop is a necessity if you are planning to join us for the July 2014 Retreat at Mt. Madonna.
We meet at the Encinitas Community Center in Encinitas, CA – you are invited to join us. The tax deductible donation for this Workshop is $185 per person. This donation includes your lunch for the day. Upon registration, you will be sent a receipt for your income taxes. *Due to the financial commitment required to plan events of this size, please ensure that you are prepared to attend this Workshop before registering as all donations for Workshops must be prepaid and are non-refundable for any reason.

I teach my students what they cannot believe nor understand with their human minds. The offerings in this book come from many lifetimes where I have struggled with the human and the Divine and come out with the influence of the Divine through compassion and loving kindness.
These are my Commentaries during the second year of work with students who are infected with fear and, hence, live through hatred. The offerings in this book are to help liberate you from the fear of life and allow Life as Love to live you. Do not just read this book…listen to the gaps between my words. It is here that the true meaning of what I am teaching is revealed.
This book is not for all of you. It is for those who seek and can know that which is unknowable. I am honored that it might be in your hands now. Live for those things that you can take with you through death.
I come to you with important news about Aspire. For 27 years I have worked very hard, along with my Sponsors, to pay for airtime on television. Airtime is very expensive, as you well know. But, due to the emergence of the internet and the popular YouTube website, we now have a viable alternative that will not only serve many of you – but the whole world.
Your Sponsorship is needed and will now help many of you who have not been able to see Aspire on television due to cable issues. We will be gradually converting all of the Aspire programs, from the very beginning to the current series, to YouTube for all the world to see and be served by. Thanks to donations we have received so far, the following Aspire TV Series are now available on YouTube:
I need your continued support, through Sponsorships or Donations in order to provide the rest of the Aspire TV programs on YouTube! For those of you who have watched Aspire for years and have not helped me sustain it, I ask for your Sponsorship! For those of you who quit being Sponsors due to not being able to see Aspire, I ask for your Sponsorship. Soon, you will be able to see Aspire wherever and whenever you like. Due to the blessed event of the “smart phone” and the iPad…you can watch Aspire when you need it and have time for it. Your Sponsorship will not only be used for the conversion of old programs…but now, we can make NEW PROGRAMS EACH YEAR! Instead of using our Sponsorship donations to pay for airtime, we will be able to use them to PRODUCE new programs each year.
Please help me serve humankind by becoming a Sponsor. I work without a staff and do everything “in house.” No donation is unimportant or used for frivolous purposes. It is all about the karma of Love.
Our world does not have many programs such as Aspire…if any at all. Your support helps this unique program offer insight where the world needs its most. Please help. If you are on my e-mail list, you will be notified about our “Mystery Donor” and his gifts to match your donations.
If you are not on my e-mail list and would like to be, simply complete this simple form to be added:
Please do not wait…I need your help now so I can get started on editing and planning for new programs.
Metta to you,
Gregory Penn (Chaitanya Siraj)
“Dear Gregory, what an amazing treat and gift of the YouTube videos. Ever since you went to Channel 4 San Diego, I have been unable to watch the programs as I have DirecTV and they do not support that channel. I was so thrilled to read this morning and learn of the Youtube site. I am currently recovering from a knee operation and nothing could have bolstered my spirits more than a dose of Aspire! Thank You.”
Greg, San Diego
“Love being able to find Greg Penn’s Discourses on YouTube. Really miss the days when he was at The Center For Spiritual Awakening in Escondido. Thanks so much for posting this! Settling and centering Discourse series that I really need to hear right now, in my life! Thanks so much and…Namaste.”
“Thank you for seeing messages in the layers that have peeled away … Aspire breathes spirit.” ember dream
“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to Truth…
not going all the way, and not starting.” ~Buddha
My spiritual path began when I was a very small child. For whatever “reason.” which I have never really needed to question, I came into this world to begin a journey that has taken me through thousands of lifetimes and, I am certain, many more thousands to come. To me, it is all about direct experience, no matter how disturbing it might be to the comfort of my life. The quality of life is the presence of living in Love…as the ultimate experience and meaning of a lifetime.
I will not bore you with my childhood and the life that brought me to be with you, in this moment. If you want to know more about me and my life as a teacher, please read some of my Commentaries as they are designed to share my innermost being with you as a man, teacher and spiritual being. I will just say that you are here, at this website, by divine rendezvous and, as myself, you are seeking that which is finding you! My journey led me to college and then, to seminary, and eventually at the feet of a great master, who transmitted to me energies that define the way I live to this very moment. I will share this with you, as I share my life…with all of the loving people that I care so much about.
After being ordained as a Unity Minister at the tender age of 21 and realizing that my deep “pull” to know would not be fulfilled by becoming a minister, I had a series of “events” that led me to India. There I lived in a very beautiful Ashram for about five years and went through the riggers of spiritual training and enfoldment. It was there that I learned many techniques to deal with the ego and, eventually, was honored to learn the art of Tibetan Pulsing and the meditations that accompany these powerful experiences.
MY SPIRITUAL PATH, WITH YOU
“No one becomes enlightened without a teacher’s help.” ~Buddha
I am not the kind of teacher that advocates a particular spiritual path. I am deeply interested in the Truth and how it can be a direct experience in a lifetime. I love Buddha…but could never be a Buddhist I love Jesus, but I can not be a Christian. I am absorbed by the Tao, but I could not say I am a Taoist. What I offer is a direct path to have what is called at “Satori,” which some of my students have experienced. A Satori is a direct encounter with Life as Love. Through meditations, Workshops, Retreats and the life coaching, I have given my students a way to reach the blessing of their own being. I can assist with this, but I can not give it all to you. You have to do your own work. As the Buddha stated, “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We, ourselves, must walk the path.” This is very good advice that I offer to all of my honored students.
If you decide to work with me, you must know that I am only interested in your awakening. I will do all I can to create the opportunity for it to bloom in your life. But, in the end, it is all up to you for it to happen. It will take authentic work on your part. You will have to be deeply devoted to the Way that lives within you. You will need discipline (meaning: not doing the things that harm you) and you will have to find the time and energy to devote to this experience. It is not for everyone. Many come and find that they simply do not have the interest in the intrinsic nature of themselves. It is not the lifetime for them to experience this. Only you can know what kind of person you are. If you are to be with me, it would by my honor…and you may know I will work very diligently to help you in all ways.
Please forgive me… Swami Chaitanya Siraj

Aspire is you, in a form that many ignore. The word Aspire means breath of spirit and that is exactly what you are. The very Breath of the Spirit that is Love, which you have been looking for all of your life. Please help us sustain Aspire and allow this message of Love and freedom to expand to all those who seek…as you do. Read more…
Listen to Gregory’s Sponsorship Message
(click the arrow below)
When you support Aspire, you give people the chance to know that which will heal their lives…that which will authentically bring wisdom and clarity to this lifetime. Your support of Aspire extends far beyond air time. Your support allows Gregory to make hospital and hospice visitations and provide free materials for people who are in need and can not afford to make a donation. It is only through your gifts that Aspire is allowed to serve humankind.
Aspire is deeply unique. Aspire is about compassion – about sharing with the public, through radio and television, monthly Newsletters and Discourses, Workshops and Retreats, the very blessing of living in a lifestyle that reveals the presence of Love that lives within all of us. Religion, philosophy and politics will not change the world. It is only through Love that real change…real transformation can occur.
We thank you for your loving support which makes our programs possible.
In deepest gratitude…..namaste

In India, this is the highest form of respect one can pay to another human being. Translated, it means: “I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells; I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Truth, of Light and of Peace.”
