Review

“Asserting that sages, both ancient and modern, share the quality of humility, Gregory says this virtue is the key to ultimate liberation. The teacher, speaker, and documentary filmmaker draws from Asian philosophies, Hermeticism, and a variety of other spiritual sources to “show a clear understanding of what spiritual evolution and illumined consciousness really mean.” Gregory’s source materials reveal broad knowledge...” (Publishers Weekly, November 2014)

The Science and Practice of Humility is a very thoughtful and wise treatise on the nature of reality, with inspiration for our spiritual unfoldment.” (Corinne McLaughlin, coauthor of The Practical Visionary)

“With the clarity of an eagle soaring in the still peace of a clear blue sky, Jason Gregory offers us an important work in the development of a vision of unity and peace. The Science and Practice of Humility is a revelation, speaking to that inner knowing that has never been separate from who we are and have always been. Gregory’s style is both intellectually stimulating and personally evocative. This book is a treasure to hold in two hands: to ponder, to enjoy, and to allow its alchemy to call upon that which is our best, and our salvation.” (Robert Sachs, author of Becoming Buddha)

“A profound and important book. From his exploration of Hermetic principles and the true meaning of alchemy, to his deconstruction of false ideas of manifesting wishes, Jason Gregory makes a unique contribution to an evolving philosophy for the 21st century. This eminently readable and thought-provoking book renders a service to us all.” (Graham Hancock, author of Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind)

The Science and Practice of Humility acts as a bridge between East and West by presenting Oriental wisdom to the modern world. This is a profound book with a simple and clear explanation of some of the classic concepts of Oriental philosophy.” (Satish Kumar, author of The Buddha and the Terrorist)

“Jason Gregory’s richly woven treatise encourages the reader to go beyond intellectualizing and to enter a realm of sincere introspection toward a liberation of the self. Gregory persuasively reminds us that evolution begins through one’s own humility. The Science and Practice of Humility is a compelling read for all those seeking the threads of Truth behind the tapestry that is life.” (Kingsley L. Dennis, Ph.D., author of New Consciousness for a New World)

“When one truly realizes the warrior mind and how it operates, it will then cease to be a part of you and peace will emerge. This is the true gift of The Science and Practice of Humility.” (Steven L. Hairfield, Ph.D., author of The Twelve Sacred Principles of Karma)

“With an in-depth discussion of the underlying ethos of the spiritual arts, The Science and Practice of Humility is a must read.” (Damo Mitchell, author of Daoist Nei Gong)

“Jason Gregory has outdone himself. The Science and Practice of Humility has given me two great moments of insight in the past month that have led to a major leap in maturity and stillness. Take time with each line in this book, and you will understand what I mean.” (Ben Stewart, documentary filmmaker of Kymatica and lead singer of Hierosonic)

“A wide ranging comprehensive exploration of the human condition, drawing on history and the wisdom of many cultures. Jason Gregory helps us to see our shadow side, and then points our gaze toward the light, the evolution of consciousness, and the healing of life on earth.” (Wes Nisker, author of The Essential Crazy Wisdom)

“Humility may be one of the most misunderstood states of being, and one of the most powerful kinds of consciousness. This book penetrates through superficial concepts to give you a much deeper experience of this way of being in the world. I like how the book connects humility and truth, and that Jason Gregory gives us a thorough background in global teachings that support the development of the frequency of humility.” (Penney Peirce, author of Leap of Perception and Frequency)

Jason Gregory is one of those enigmatic authors that captivates you from the very start. The subject matter is not only tackled with wonderful insight but also portrayed in an easy digestible manner. Gregory’s own subjective life has tremendous value to reader, do not take that lightly. It shines throughout the book as he delivers syncretism of many philosophies and spiritual subjects. Just exactly how he integrates all the complex various topics intricately and confidently is very rewarding. Humility is not something I had thought of much, nor gave much significance until reading ‘The Science and Practice of Humility’. Now having read the wealth of information contained within, I not only understand the philosophies within, but am profoundly touched by the impact of the material. As an avid reader I cannot say that about many books of this genre. This book is tantamount to journeys of spiritual or psychological epiphanies. It will undoubtedly give the reader the very tools to attain those epiphanies in the experiential conscious evolution we are on. A pure enjoy and enthralling read.

Very intrigue by what is "humility" that Jason Gregory is stating in is book. Well, it keep the suspense until the end, the book construction lead you to the final chapters. But all along every chapters are necessary and important to get to the final chapter. This is a powerful book with a lot in it. I had to pause after each chapters to let the information take roots in me before starting the next one. Quantum physics as a start is perfect for a background set up, it s like starting with the big picture (macro) to finally end up with us the human (micro). This is not a step manual, nor a method, this is a personal and profound exploration of who you are. Are you living like a warrior or a sage, both or none. Like other reviewer I know I will have to re read it again and re explore the different layers that were just seed at a time. Highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9a924180) out of 5 stars I bought Jason's wonderfully enlightening book last week and have now read it ... Nov. 13 2014
By Ralph Huber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In a clear, engaging manner, Jason Gregory invites the reader to explore how the quality of humility can illuminate and elevate the consciousness of oneself and our world. I bought Jason's wonderfully enlightening book last week and have now read it twice. For many years I've valued the importance of humility as Jason presents it and found myself continually saying "Yes" to his perspective of humility. Having "lived" with Jason's book these past couple weeks, I have a renewed appreciation of and devotion to humility as a pathway to awakened living. Here are a few passages from Jason's book that I particularly appreciate:

"[I]n order to change the world, we must first change ourselves....humility can inspire the real change within the heart and mind of each individual that is required to bring about real change in the world we all share."

"[T]he capacity of an enlightened master is to see order out of chaos and thus further evolution through their own being."

"A sage knows fundamentally that to truly change the world, we need to change where the world comes from. And where it comes from is the individual's perception of it."

"We can force ourselves upon the universe, or become humble students of it."

"From the elevated state of a sage, separation does not exist, not even between the different ways a warrior and a sage perceive the world."

"[I]n simplistic terms the warrior is fixed on duality and the sage sees the interdependent unity of all things, which is a non-dual state of consciousness."

"Humility is the virtue of truly receiving life with an unwavering gratitude toward existence."

"Humility as real strength is realized by a jivanmukta, one who has become a receptive vessel that the source of the universe can flow through....those who are truthfully humble emanate indescribable power."

"Nothing humbles a being more than realizing that what will be will be....We can either learn to flow with it [life] or can continue to fight it."

What I most resonate with in Jason's book is his emphasis on allowing life to be as it is, instead of trying to force life to show up the way one thinks it should. To my mind, this doesn't mean being passively underfoot to life. One can still take action in the world; however, that action comes from unity rather than separation--action that isn't grounded in judging the world as somehow making mistakes in its unfoldment. Indeed, a humility of response to the world that understands the truth of the universe's ultimate harmony.

HASH(0x9a2e46fc) out of 5 stars I truly enjoyed The way of the warrior and the path of ... Jan. 3 2015
By Kathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Thought provoking, insightful! Jason book challenges you to look within your own psyche to take accountability for one owns self! I truly enjoyed The way of the warrior and the path of the sage chapter. He emphasized that life should not be about changing the world, as much as changing our perception of it. Why do we fight? Great question, because the fight itself creates conflict. I can honestly say that Jason's honesty is welcoming to those of us who have lost the desire to put everything in a good vs bad paradigm. The Us against them, for in the end we are all Love. Vibrating at different level of consciousness, and that understanding is the greatest compassion that we can give to ourselves and others. I have gained a greater understanding of my ego and my soul. And I now truly understand that the ego is my teacher, so that I can value my soul. Thank You Jason...

HASH(0x9a3316a8) out of 5 stars The Science and Practice of Humility is a beautiful interweaving of ancient wisdom and modern science concepts Nov. 13 2014
By Jodi Cameron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From the moment I opened Jason's book, I was captivated by every word. The Science and Practice of Humility is a beautiful interweaving of ancient wisdom and modern science concepts. The way Jason brings together wisdom from all over antiquity and modern day and helps us to integrate it into to our own daily experience, is a gift. The way Jason explains the Warrior and Sage, in chapter 5, shifted my perception in a way that I will be forever grateful. If you are a serious student of ancient wisdom and inner change, or maybe have never heard the term at all and searching, this book is for you.

HASH(0x9a024060) out of 5 stars Totally engaging from the offset...LOVE IT! Jan. 11 2016
By Tara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Through this beautifully written book get ready to be taken on a journey 'WITHIN' which will not only expand your mind but open your heart.

There is a saying, 'The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don't tell you what to see.' Jason Gregory is that and more.

I must emphasise that throughout the book Jason does not say there is a right or a wrong way of being. Instead he encourages us to let ourselves unfold naturally from within, working in harmony with the universe there by producing an ever increasing oneness.

The book gives the reader an understanding of the concept of eastern traditions and with this we discover that there is no need to struggle through life. Jason describes the two states of awareness that are within us all, the warrior and the sage. We learn that if we can humbly embrace all of our experiences by heightening our perspective to that of the sage, then all of the "chaos" we may see from a warriors perspective becomes "order." By letting go of the idea of separation and understanding that we are a part of the wholeness (the conciousness of the Universe) then in a paradoxic way even the things we may perceive as negative become positive.

For me personally I've had a deep longing to understand the energy and vibration of the universe and how everything is connected. No other book I have read to date has been able to explain it all in such a way that I could understand like this one. I finally get it!

I have loved every single chapter. Within each one there was a part of it that would resonate so deep inside of me, a moment when I would feel a wave of energy rush through me, as if I had come to the realisation that I was rediscovering something I had long forgotten.

This is a book to be treasured and read time and time again. A reminder that by living a more humble existence and having faith in the higher power that everything is just how it should be at any given moment, we can ultimately bring more peace within ourselves, which in turn brings more peace to our outer world. Thank you Jason Gregory!
