Mindfulness is hugely important to Greg Burdulis; it helps him open his heart ? to himself, to others, to our world and beyond. It offers freedom from attachments, resistance and emotional storms. Mindfulness is a central pillar of his life. Greg Burdulis' devotion to meditation peaked when he was a monk for seven years, where he lived and practiced in monasteries, caves and hermitages in Burma. Leaving Burma due to his father's death, Greg returned to the States, where he realized another reason to return ? to help others learn what he'd learned in the monasteries through new technologies and methods to teach ancient wisdom, including positive and somatic psychology and mindfulness based therapies. Greg Burdulis' vision is to teach people to unleash the power of presence -- and flourish ? everyday. His mission is to teach modern people to practice mindfulness to reap its benefits, which ripple out into the world we share together.
