Gregory is a spiritual teacher and author. His teachings have been inspired by a profound love for mysticism that developed in a very early age and led him deep into Western Mystery Traditions, Native South American Shamanism, and much later, Vajrayana Buddhism. Influenced by the Advaita Vedanta lineage of Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj and Nisargadatta Maharaj, Gregory shares a strong affinity for clear and direct nondual teachings, seeing them as invaluable pointers to Truth and to the recognition of the freedom that can come from an absolute ‘knowing’ of Self.
