Most people waste their lives on fear and hording money. To those of you who realize the bigger picture, you will understand the gratitude that fills my being right now as I can offer to you this Fall the new Aspire series: THE THREE TREASURES OF THE TAO.
Please know that it was the few that made all of this possible. The loving gifts of those who can “hear” and “see” beyond eyes and voice…know the meaning of giving and helping humankind.
These special YouTube programs will appear this Fall. I will be filming in September in San Diego. If you live in the San Diego area and would like to watch a filming of Aspire, please call me at (831) 622-8410 so I may give you the details.
Again, my deepest thanks to you. Remember, all Sponsors will be given the four disc set of
THE THREE TREASURES OF THE TAO this Fall. Become a Sponsor today!

The May Newsletter is very simple and yet…very powerful. It will offer to you a way in which to self realize the meaning of living split. The effort of this Newsletter is to introduce you to the process of achieving harmony or Oneness – a very important quality in spiritual transformation.
These Meditations and the Ambient Music are filled with the sacred energy of Tibet and of the Tibetan Monks that traveled to Big Sur to help create them. They are a prelude to our Mt. Madonna Retreat in July on Impermanence and are of great power and significance. It is very important that you work with these meditations and listen to the ambient music in order to prepare for the July Retreat as well as joining Gregory at one of his Workshops either in Monterey or Encinitas.
Tibetan monks journeyed from Tibet to Big Sur to share their sacred chanting with you in this beautiful Tibetan Pulsing Meditation. This Meditation helps to clear your unconscious of hidden emotions (fear, pride, hatred) that block the light that lives within you and illuminates your inner light with great care and beauty.

Dyana means meditative path. Layered throughout this Meditation are the tones and textures of singing bowls in the perfect pitch of the heart chakra as well as the sacred chanting of Tibetan monks who traveled from Tibet to Big Sur to contribute to the creation of the Tibetan Pulsing Meditation. This will help you learn to imbibe the finer energies of life and of being.

KARMA: YEAR TWO
Our Theme for 2013: SAMSARA KARMA
“Pleasures flow everywhere. You float upon them and are carried from life to life. Like a hunted hare you run, the pursuer of desire pursued, harried from life to life. The cycle of birth and death is a long path for those who do not know the Way.” ~Buddha
Beginning with our Workshops in January we will journey this year through meditation and energy practice into the very meaning of Samsara Karma. Samsara Karma is the cycle of death, rebirth and death again in the material world. This cycle is repeated for endless lifetimes until a seminal moment occurs through consciousness. Most people are content with living in Samsara Karma until a formative moment occurs where indifference and emotional passion are pushed aside for the sake of the profound moment where a glimpse of Love has arisen and a spiritual awakening has occurred.
In 2013, I dedicate my Workshops and Retreats as well as the monthly Newsletters, Message of the Month and Discourses to the essence of Samsara Karma. Of course, my Bi-weekly Commentaries, Podcasts and Videocasts will all contain insights to help break the chain of pain and useless sorrow that occurs when we are spiritually indifferent.
This will not be a year for everyone. Some will find that they are just too emotional and, hence, not available for this subject or the disciplines that will result in breaking the chain of lifetime after lifetime of living in what I call passionate indifference to Love. If you have the “right stuff” to move deeply into energies that are transformational through the methods and disciplines that will be offered to you, as well as the meditations and energy practices that will be revealed to you in the year of 2013, then please know that your presence is deeply welcomed and appreciated. Looky-loo’s will find no real interest or mental foothold in this all-consuming practice of Samsara Karma.
September 14, 2013 – Encinitas, CA
Gregory will offer new Meditations and gestalt therapy that will help the student come to the place where they can see the value of Samsara Karma and how to live in it more consciously. It is all about conscious living, which means to live beyond the minds’ ideals and agendas. This Workshop will offer so many opportunities for personal insight. You are invited.
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. Please understand that all reservations must be prepaid. Upon registration, you will be sent a receipt for income taxes.

“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
