Greg’s Bio

Being an entrepreneur and self-motivated he began to study meditation, breathing techniques and mindfulness. He attended seminars, workshops and weekend retreats. He read books, listened to audio books and met with others who practiced meditation. He became a full-fledged “closet meditator”.
