Greg Friedman is a modern day spiritual guide and mentor who builds bridges and helps clear paths by taking the ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures and making it applicable to people in their everyday lives.
Friedman works with clients one on one, in workshops, as a couple's referee and translator, as well as taking small groups of people all over the world to work with indigenous elders in remote destinations. He has studied and done ceremony with Peruvian Shamans, Aborigine elders and elders from various Native American tribes including the Yaqui, the Deer Tribe, the Lakota and the Abanaki.
"At the close of the Mayan calendar" Freidman says, "I had more than one client ask what I thought about the end of the world. My answer was simple and consistent. Live Now. The truth is that this moment is the only one we have. Every time I type the words Live Now, I always type Love NoW. Maybe there is no distinction."
"Because of the tragic events at the Boston Marathon, once again I had clients asking about how to deal with all of the shadow they see in the world, or their perspective that the shadow is overtaking the light. Once again, the answer is the same: Live Now Love Now. If any of us acts as the light and love we desire in our lives, we provide a fertile environment for that to be contagious, for the light to be the thing we live in that draws others, not because of what we say or preach, but because of how we live."
Pallamary, an author and student/teacher of spirituality, shamanism, and writing for over thirty years, agrees. He teaches how to balance personal and physical energy, increase mental and physical acuity, and tap into calm focused, positive thinking through many techniques, which include energy awareness exercises, an 8Board balance device as well as visionary plant diets.
His published works hail from different genres - short horror stories, memoir, historical fiction, essay, and non-fiction, yet they all share the common thread of shamanism and influences from the spirit world.
Pallamary's tribal epic novel, Land Without Evil, inspired injured aerialist Agent Red to cure her PTSD through shamanic practices, which stemmed from an aerial fall that shattered her wrists and fractured her skull. Feeling resurrected, she adapted Pallamary's novel into an aerial stage show with Austin's Sky Candy and a television special with PBS.
Pallamary believes shamanism is becoming a more accepted mainstream option in alternative medicine. "Plant diets open up channels of the brain to healing that otherwise cannot be easily accessed. I'm fascinated by the brain, neurochemistry, and how it heals."
For those who may be confused, angry, in fear and/or in grief about the recent events in Boston, Pallamary and Friedman will welcome calls to help people understand how spirituality can help them cope. Pallamary is originally from Dorchester and has friends who are neighbors of the slain eight-year-old Martin Richard and his family. "Dorchester, Boston and America are hurting. I feel it," says Pallamary, "I want to help."
Pallamary's latest book, "The Infinity Zone - A Transcendent Approach to Peak Performance," based on mathematical principles of Rudolf Steiner and Einstein, teaches readers how to harness their body's energy to achieve mental calm, physical balance, and power.

Pallamary's books are available on Amazon.com, MysticInkPublishing.com, Infinityzonebook.com, Mattpallamary.com and bookstores everywhere. Pallamary can be contacted for interviews or as a speaker at mattpallamary.com.
