Entrance into the Heart of the Soul Meditation Retreat

March 25-29, 2019 – Mt Madonna, CA

In the year of 2019, Gregory will be taking us on a journey to the Soul. Most people merely assume that they have a Soul. This is simply not true. The journey will begin during the January Workshops in Carmel and Encinitas culminating in our three annual retreats.

In March 2019, we will begin cultivating the Heart Chakra as the entrance to the Soul. We will delve into the difference between the emotional heart (human heart) and the Authentic Heart. Tummo Meditations will be offered to help the student begin their awakening to the Heart and eventual experience of the Soul.

If you are open and willing, if you seek more than the mediocrity of the pedestrian mentality…then this year is for you.

“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…”
