“We, each of us, are Magic and every moment is an opportunity to embody that for ourselves” – A conversation with Spiritual Mentor Greg Friedman

Greg Friedman is a modern version of a Spiritual Guide and Mentor. He builds bridges and helps clear paths by taking the ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures and making it applicable to us in our everyday lives.

He hosts the world-renowned FM radio program, "Inner Journey with Greg Friedman". He has also been taking small groups of people all over the world to work with indigenous elders in remote destinations including the Amazon Rainforest and done ceremony with Peruvian Shamans, Aborigine elders and elders from various Native American tribes.

He will be presenting THE NATIVE AMERICAN MEDICINE WHEEL at India’s one and only ‘soul’ festival, the Global Festival of Spiritual Sciences, at Pyramid Valley, Bengaluru from 29th September – 2nd October, 2018.

Here’s a conversation we had with Greg Friedman in which he talks about his life purpose and his journey as a spiritual bridge between indigenous cultures and the rest of the world.

THRIIVE: When and how did you know for sure what your life purpose is?

GREG FRIEDMAN: I don’t mean to sound flippant but I have always known I am here to serve and build bridges.

THRIIVE: How has this transformed you?
GREG FRIEDMAN: It has made life both much more difficult in many ways and much more flavorful in many ways as well. The more awake one becomes the more one sees both light and shadow, internally and externally.

THRIIVE: Could you share any incident that stands out in your journey? 
GREG FRIEDMAN: I have dealt a great deal with death and dying and it has taught me both how to live more fully as a human and that life is much more expansive than just the human form.

THRIIVE: Could you suggest an empowering practice our readers could carry out in their daily life? And also, how.
GREG FRIEDMAN: It is vital to remember that we are each the authors of our own story and not only can we write it based on perception and also by extension we are just characters in other people’s stories and to not take anything personally.

THRIIVE: What message would you life to give our readers?
GREG FRIEDMAN: Ultimately the medicine wheel is simply this: We are the medicine and the wheel is a tool to bring us closer to ourselves and each other.

THRIIVE: What can attendees look forward to in your session at GFSS 2018?
GREG FRIEDMAN: We, each of us, are Magic and every moment is an opportunity to embody that for ourselves and to grow through being of service.
