Podcast Host, and practitioner/scholar of esotericism
Greg Kaminsky is a practitioner and scholar of esotericism, with a graduate degree in Medieval Studies from Harvard. Greg has been a lifelong student of history, religion, and esotericism since his upbringing. In addition to pursuing these interests academically, Greg is the host and producer of Occult of Personality, a long-running podcast that has explored the esoteric with authors and experts in the field since 2006. His desire to create the podcast began with a life-long compulsion to learn more about ancient civilizations, world religions, symbolism, and the underlying hidden wisdom which they contain, but only convey to the initiated. With well over 200 episodes completed and tens of thousands of listeners every month, the podcast continues to grow in popularity and prestige. As part of the journey to learn about the esoteric while doing the podcast, Greg was initiated into several traditions including Freemasonry. Since 2017, he has devoted himself to the study and practice of Buddhist Tantra with his teacher Traktung Khepa Rinpoche and is working on a new book explaining the preliminary practices of the tradition from a Western perspective.
