Tummo Meditation Retreat

July 15-20, 2018 – Mt Madonna, CA

Tummo is a series of sixty-eight Meditations (apart of the Tibetan pulsing trilogy Meditations that Gregory has been teaching his students for years now) that first began and was created by Tibetan monks who learned how to keep themselves warm in the cold winters of China and northern India. As they raised their body temperatures, they also found that through adjusting breath patterns along with utilizing breath techniques that access to advanced states of consciousness were revealed. In these moments of awakening came insights into the meaning of this world and what our greater purposes are as spiritual beings who inhabit a human form.

In this Meditation Retreat, Gregory will offer more forms of Tummo Meditation and exercises in order to help students find their center point and create an inner balance and an authentic awakening of what is called: form into the formlessness…which is ultimately the energetic of the Universe – Love. We will be working with Vipassana Meditation, as well as Tummo breath patterns that awaken the ancient form of Kundalini and bring total awareness of the Oneness of this lifetime as Love into our state of consciousness.

It is important to join Gregory at his Meditation Workshop in Carmel, CA prior to the July Retreat for the new Tummo exercises that cultivate the fire of Kundalini. You can register for the Workshop here.

“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…”
