Peru! Peru! Peru!

Updated: Jun 23, 2022

Greg In Peru

Only love can bring the rain That makes you yearn to the sky Only love can bring the rain That falls like tears from on high On the dry and dusty road The nights we spend apart alone I need to get back home to cool, cool rain I can't sleep, and I lay, and I think The night is hot and black as ink Woo, oh God, I need a drink of cool, cool rain Love, reign o'er me Reign o'er me, o'er me, o'er me, woah Love, reign o'er me, o'er me Love ~ The Who, sung by many

Greetings! I sit in a café in Medellin, Columbia, contemplating my incredible good fortune, and how there are many, especially in Ukraine and elsewhere suffering from war, displacement, and oppression. It is not easy to hold these two truths side by side. I find in doing so, however, an expansion; I am both more grateful and sad, as I dive deeper into both. Yesterday, I travelled from Cusco to Lima to Bogota to Medellin. This alone blows me away, as what took me one long day of travel would have taken our ancestors months on the backs of donkeys, for thousands of years! Peru and the Sacred Valley were unbelievable! Truly, beyond words. I have never been to a more beautiful place. The energy of the lush valley, between the 18,000 foot Andes has struck me to the bones. I came away so grateful for this place, which is somehow still deeply connected to our own human ancestry. Like stepping through time to an area where people still live, however remotely, as our ancestors did thousands of years ago. The sheer beauty of the valley and mountains is breathtaking, and the energy of the earth, air, water, and sun are ever present and palpable. The history of the Incas and Spanish is both extraordinary and tragic. Their individual and combined architecture more than impressive. Beyond deeply moved and grateful, I am left with both sadness and hopefulness. The juxtaposition and irony of being in such a beautiful place, once occupied by a foreign and often repressive regime, while all is going on in the world today, is not lost on me. Humans can and do the most horrible things… and yes, they can also do the most wonderful, beautiful, and amazing things. May we all resolve towards the later. Love, Love, Love. Always, Greg

Private Sessions

Greg Barringer And Student

Give a Gift to Yourself On-line or In-Person Free 30 minute first session! During these challenging times it’s so nice to have someone in our corner, empathizing, listening, and helping us see beyond. Private sessions are a wonderful opportunity to share, receive encouragement, get perspective, and explore practices designed to take us beyond self-absorption, access deep levels of wisdom, awareness, healing, and strength. It takes a little extra to reach out, make the first step; try a free session, no obligations. I’d love to see you, one-to-one, hear to how you’re doing, and explore deeper. Benefits of private sessions include: * Lower stress and anxiety * Increased clarity and focus * Release of pain and trauma * Deep relaxation and improved sleep * Alignment of intentions, purpose, and action
