Greg has practiced Tibetan Buddhism in the Gelukpa sect. In September of 2010 he took refuge vows with Lama Thubten Zopa, Rinpoche. Rinpoche means precious one, it is an honorific accorded reincarnate lamas. Rinpoche gave Greg the Tibetan name of Thubten Dagme, which means selfless or no self. In 2006 he was ordained into the catholic priesthood through the Companions of St. Thomas, a small independent catholic order. His overarching career goal is to combine writing and ministry in an effort to introduce a spiritual perspective to social justice issues.
One of Greg’s driving interests is sustainable living. Sustainability in all its facets is the focus of Sustainworx. Sustainability is more than peak oil and free-range chickens. One of the more interesting questions is about building and maintaining sustainable culture. He wants to explore the personal side of sustainability as well as the economic and technical sides. This publication is geared toward those who wish to understand the economic,environmental cultural, and social justice implications of sustainability.
