The Love of the Soul Meditation Retreat

March 23-27, 2020 – Mt Madonna, CA

It seems that people are looking for “love” to soothe the savage beast that lives within the human biology. They use all sorts of means to find “love,” which they romantically believe will give them a “happy” life. For the pedestrian mentality…this is all there is.

But there is far more to life and living than mere appeasement of the emotions. Within this very simple, yet potent Retreat, you will be offered Meditations that penetrate deep into the very core of the Authentic so that you may discover the total essence of Love. This Love is not emotional, it has nothing to do with our psychology. It has to do with authentic LOVE itself as a totally unique experience. It is only through Love that we discover the Soul, which is the greatest discovery a human being can awaken to in this world.

If you have the willingness and feel the “pull” to the Authentic, then the March Retreat will mean the totality of your entire lifetime.

Many are called, few have chosen.

“Someday…I, too, want to sit for a week with Gregory. His words have been whispering into my heart for over 22 years. Much gratitude for the YouTube programs and his endless devotion to us, his students, who can download him and take him with us where ever we go! My soul is lighter and joyful when I use the Tibetan Pulsing Meditations. If you cannot get to Retreat, definitely get the Meditations. They are exceptional! Namaste…”
