David and the Discovery Community

From Gregg:
"I have a profound respect for the healing power of community. Something profound happens through our personal sharing and witnessing of our stories-isolation dissolves, fear subsides, a collective wisdom surfaces and we recognize our deep connectedness."

Gregg, a survivor of HIV for nearly 30 years, is a powerfully charismatic speaker and facilitator, working with universal themes of how life’s challenges and suffering present us with growth-filled opportunities. He has worked with the LGBT, HIV/AIDS and youth communities for over 25 years with his lectures, retreats and workshops.

During the height of the epidemic Gregg began facilitating groups for people affected by HIV/AIDS. He founded the San Francisco Healing Circle, and the San Francisco Center for Living, as well as leading conferences and retreats around the country with AIDS, Medicine and Miracles. Gregg has extensive experience leading retreat sessions, including "Honoring Our Experience," a program addressing the issues of long term survivors of the epidemic.

His contribution to the HIV/AIDS community has been recognized with the Certificate of Special Recognition from the U.S. Congress presented by Nancy Pelosi as well as honors from the City of San Francisco. He is seen in the ground-breaking documentaries "Absolutely Positive" and "That's a Family!" He is an LGBT rights activist helping to organize and emcee anti-Prop 8 rallies since 2008. But the greatest joy and accomplishment of his life is being a Dad to his daughter, Breauna.
