Back to Ordinariness
Recorded May 24, 2022
Details
From Gangaji's 2022 Silent Retreat at Fallen Leaf Lake. Gangaji speaks of the hope that spirituality would get her something, and the fear that if she did as her teacher asked, and stopped all activity to get anything, she would slide right back down the mountain of achievement she had spent years trying to climb.

It Has Always Been Here
Recorded May 23, 2022
Details
From Gangaji's 2022 Silent Retreat at Fallen Leaf Lake. This discovery of what has always been here has no boundary. It has never left. It has never not been who you are, whatever circumstances you throw at it. "It" is always here.

The Fear of Being too Great
Recorded Mar 16, 2009
Details
Sometimes the feeling of unworthiness is masking the fear that if we are truly who we are, we will be too great. And if we are too great, that will be dangerous. Ultimately Gangaji is inviting us to not postpone realization for anything, whether it's the fear of being too great, too small, not enough, or any of a host of other ways we avoid the truth of ourselves.

Me and My Illusion
Recorded Oct 3, 1999
Details
What do you think is happening? What story are you telling yourself about yourself? We develop “illusions” using powers of mind: memory, projection, dissociation, interpretation. In the extreme, we create outlandish conspiracy theories. In our daily lives, we often use the power of mind to create needless suffering. This month, we examine these patterns and Gangaji helps us unearth the jewel in being disillusioned.

“It is very useful to recognize illusions. It is also crucial to recognize that regardless of illusion, you are present. You are the power behind illusion and the power behind truth.”

Authentically Yourself: You Can Stop "Faking It"
Recorded Mar 11, 2001
Details
“All of your life you have wanted to be who you are.  That is what authentic means, isn’t it?”

Recognizing you are just “faking it” is a moment of discriminating wisdom that reveals an essential choice point. Will you keep faking it? When the desire for the truth of who you are overwhelms every other human desire, the choice becomes clear. In this exchange, Gangaji takes us on a deep dive into the desire for authenticity and the habit of postponement.

I Don't Want That to Change!
Recorded Feb 11, 2007
Details
What don't we want to change, what are we not willing to lose? What are we hiding from? Gangaji examines how our superstitious minds are afraid to expose our deepest fears about what we might lose if we really tell the truth. Recorded February 11, 2007, in San Rafael, CA.

Join Gangaji January 17, 2021 for a conversation about our relationship to change. Learn more

Recorded Sep 29, 2007
Details
Recorded in September 2007 at the Omega institute, this conversation dives into the emotions we encounter and the mental constructs we run into when we start to really let go of control. With humor and delight, Gangaji guides the conversation under all judgments or attempts to control thought patterns or circumstances, into a free fall into the unknown. On Sunday, February 21 Gangaji will lead a live online meeting on the subject of Control vs. Responsibility. Learn More
