Upcoming Topics

 

June – Mental Suffering: Fear & Self-Doubt

What are you telling yourself? When we are caught up in thought, listening to the “voice in our head,” how can we stop and simply be true to ourselves?  Questioning the mental authority we have listened to throughout our lives is a turning point, a life-changing moment of inquiry. We can disagree with or rebel against that mental authority, but there is another possibility. We can question its very reality. This month join Gangaji for an investigation into the nature of mental suffering in our daily lives and the role that fear and self-doubt play.

 

July – The Body: Instincts & Drives

Human beings are animals, human animals. The body is a wondrous creation, managing millions, actually trillions, of transactions, processes and movements every day without requiring our effort or even awareness. Our physical survival is sustained by the natural intelligence that plays out in our chemistry, environment, instincts and drives. What does it mean when our instincts and drives are out of control? How can we recognize the difference between living freely and simply acting out our raw impulses?

 

August – Betrayal: Self Hatred & Denial

Self-hatred can be the driving force of one’s life. It needn’t be. In a true examination of self-hatred, it is not what you may believe it to be. This month Gangaji exposes the mechanics of self-hatred and what is ultimately the denial of who we are. What choices are we making that perpetuate the habit of self-hatred? How do we stop betraying ourselves?

 

September – Annihilating Love & True Surrender

“It is possible to be so ruthlessly honest that neither pleasure nor pain is the determining factor for action.” Love is the annihilating force. It reveals that all identities and boundaries are meaningless. In a moment of pure grace, we realize there is only this Love. When our self-definitions are swept aside and we recognize who we truly are, the question (or fear) often arises, “What does this mean for me?” Gangaji addresses living life in true surrender to the grace that has appeared.

 

October– Living an Uncommon, Ordinary Life

 “There is no formula.”

The accumulations of higher status, material objects or better spiritual identities are common ways we use our life force. By now, we have seen that these temporary accumulations have not brought us lasting peace and fulfillment. In the wake of realizing the truth of who you are, the uncommon possibility is to let your life be used by that awakening without knowing how or when or what. This month, we discuss living an uncommon, ordinary life.
