Start Your Journey
Greetings! I am Dr. Anthony Gregorc.
Welcome to my website. It was created as a medium for sharing information about my life's purposeful works and transformational services for dealing intelligently and effectively with our Human minds and psyches.
As an educator, researcher, practicing phenomenologist and Western Shaman, I am dedicated to helping clients who are R.A.W. That is, those who are Ready, Able, and Willing to become consciously aware of essential and practical mental and psychic health information that is unknown to most people. The primary reason for the void, is that this information has yet to be discovered. Other reasons are that it is known in varying degrees but has been purposefully withheld from Humanity for Centuries by power brokers. At least, that is what some humans believe.
It is time to end the lack of information and this is the function of my work. I have chosen to reveal key ideas to promote substantive change and enable personal growth through a series of instructive and participatory programs that follow the injunction, KNOW THY SELF. If you are interested in learning more, I invite you to become more intrigued by perusing my site.
Enjoy the Journey!

About Anthony F. Gregorc, Ph.D.
Because of the unique nature of my background, I developed a known Signature System that covers 5 categories. It introduces a change to our view of the human psyche that is a proven methodology to open new doors to personal growth. This work has shaped and influenced my approach and guidance for assisting students and clients. I now integrate the 5-Goals Signature System with my upcoming classes and keynotes called, "The Proper Care of Our Ingenious Minds". The Keynotes are customized for audiences.
My interest in how-and-why we humans think and behave as we do began early in my life. This led to my becoming a life-long learner and teacher on such topics. My phenomenological training offered me access to a 3-dimensional world view of psychology and metaphysics. This enabled me to make links among the outer world of appearances (pheno); their specific inner driving forces (noumena); and their Essence, Spiritual Sources and reasons-for-being (logos).
The adventurous and testing journey to become a Western Shaman introduced me to the Worlds of Light and Darkness. Experiences in these realms have permitted me to gain revelations and understandings of their magnificent nature, dedicated purposes, everyday activities, and inevitable consequences upon individuals and collective Humanity. They taught me appropriate fear of the Dark and proper means of earning respectful cooperation of Light and Dark forces for guidance in diagnosing. healing, creating, and destroying. And, they opened my eyes to the intentions and behaviors of perpetrators of evil in personal, group, cultural and political activities, and events.
All of these ways-and-means helped and continue to assist me in getting answers to my incessant "why" questions. They have significantly effected who and what I am today. As as result, I developed a phenomenologically-based quaternary Model and system called the "Mind Styles Model". At it's core is a researched, elegant and powerful instrument for identifying pheno and noumenal qualities of a "takers' mind". The instrument is called the "Gregorc Style Delineator". It has been nationally and internationally used for decades.
Aside, I am a family man. Widowed now. I was married to a magnificent partner of 54 years. We have two gifted healer children –a son who serves as an astute Bio-Cranial Chiropractor and a daughter who counsels individuals through her insightful practice of psychotherapy. Presently, Fate has Blessed me with the companionship of an amazingly gifted and noble woman as my Life Partner.
Professionally, I have expressed myself through many roles that include a high school teacher of math and biology, Principal of the University of Illinois Laboratory High School, and an assistant superintendent of schools. Academically, I served as a published professor and assistant Dean at the University of Illinois at Urbana, and a professor at UCONN, The University of Connecticut at Storrs.
Business-wise, I created my own company, Gregorc Associates, Inc., as a base and nexus for my services and product-line development and distribution.
My website inclusions provide a glimpse of the breadth-and-depth of the well from which I can draw on your behalf.
I welcome the opportunity to be in personal contact with you by email, or over the phone.

KEY TENETS OF THE MIND STYLES™ MODEL
There are 8 elements that form the foundation of the Mind Styles-oriented services and products.
Every human being is endowed with a uniquely proportioned set of mental qualities for interacting with the world. These emanate from and serve the Psyche/Self.
These qualities manifest as specific behaviors, characteristics, mannerisms and products known collectively as STYLE.
Our mental qualities prompt us to be attracted to specific people, places, and things that are appropriate for us. They also prompt us to reject and be rejected by inappropriate people, places, and things.
When we live in harmony with our endowments and environments, we live an authentic life style with a sense of rightness and fulfillment.
When we live in dis-harmony with our endowments and environments, we live a lifestyle of falseness with a sense of wrongness and emptiness.
Each of us is endowed with Freed Will which is expressly provided for creating harmony and dis-harmony in our Lives.
When we deviate from our True Nature, mental, psychic and physical dis-comforts and dis-orders occur as warning signs and opportunities for us to restore balance to our lives.
To be True or Untrue to our inherent "Nature" is a decision that NO ONE can avoid.
As a result of my decades'-long labors on the nature, functions, care and protection of the Human Mind and Psyche, I focus all my current books, keynotes, lectures, workshops and classes on assisting individuals to gain Self-knowledge via my established Mind Styles Model. I share the 8-Key Tenets of the Model and expand upon their critical meanings for Human mental, psychic and physical well-being. All are included in my Speaker's Kit that is furnished upon request through my contact form.
My Core Workshop is entitled: "The Proper Care of Our Ingenious Minds." An exemplary Outline is on the draw-down in this division. (Scroll to the bottom)
I also deliver and teach 3 main categories of speeches that are organized into threads. They are:
I. THE PROPER CARE OF OUR INGENIOUS MINDS
II. THE SURGE OF MODERN-DAY EVIL
III. MIND STYLES + GREGORC DELINEATOR (Assessment work)
My concentration is on personal discoveries and understandings and then, if desired, segue to applications for partnerships and couples, team and group efforts, leadership behaviors, and learning/teaching relationships.
I approach audiences with the attitude of sharing. It is not my intent to convince or convert.
At the beginning of every presentation, all participants receive a fully-detailed printed Outline to help them follow my guided yet extempore teaching style. The Outline's design guides their minds through the content, and memorializes the session's proceedings for reflection at a later time.
