Love…Is Silence

July 2020 Retreat has been cancelled.

Gregory will offer the magnitude of Love through the Silence of tone and light. We will work on forgiveness and the compassion to live beyond the physicality of the conjecture of human pride. There will be gestalts, journaling and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to authentically transform into the essence of Love.

If you have the willingness and feel the “pull” to the Authentic…the July 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…”
