Gangaji Community

Love of peace brings us together. Serving peace is our opportunity... together.

Our Shared Purpose

Side-by-side with Gangaji, we serve the recognition of the inherent peace and freedom alive in core of all being. We joyfully welcome your  participation and support in our commitment.  

Combining the inspiration and talents of our staff and volunteers with the those generously funding our program offerings, we send out a message of peace that reaches around the world and past prison walls. 

"It is a great wish of mine to contribute to peace in the world. Supporting the work of Gangaji is a wonderful opportunity to do so." —Gertrud, Switzerland

“I have to tell you that this is probably the most helpful and insightful course I’ve come across in the 36 years I’ve been brings to light the many stories of pain that I’ve avoided most of my life only to find that they cannot hold up under the light of self-inquiry.”–Fred, Graceville Correctional, FL

"What a wonder to have a vehicle like the GF Prison Program to send Gangaji's message to our sangha behind bars." Shanti Einolander, Prison Program Mgr.

Freedom Inside

Since 1994, the Prison Program has offered the opportunity for those both on the "inside" and the "outside" to deepen in self-inquiry. Currently, more than 625 prisoners from 250 US prisons participate in Freedom Inside, a course by mail.

Nuts & Bolts

Website & Systems

Our robust digital platform offers a way to meet Gangaji online and delivers her message of peace far and wide. 175+ countries and counting.

Content Curation

Our current focus is to make the rich array of recordings more accessible through content curation to seekers today and well into the future.

“We wanted to create a collaborative space where fellow donors can meet each other, share gratitude, connect more directly with the Gangaji Foundation, be imaginative with our giving, and inquire what it means to serve peace on the planet in these times.”

Board of Directors

“In 1990, I found myself in the room at Gangaji’s very first meeting. Since that lucky day, I have witnessed the unfolding of this invitation to freedom through the Gangaji Foundation. We stand on the shoulders of volunteers and donors who have come before (many still here!), and we contribute our spirit and passion as we move forward.” —Suman

The Door is Open

In my eyes, this community is a beautiful mandala, a true circle of support for self-realization. We all bring ourselves, our resources, and our capacities to serve the discovery of peace—the peace alive in the heart of all being. Just as Papaji opened his front door to Gangaji and welcomed her in, we come together now to extend his welcome home to the world.

I invite you to bring your gifts and support to this possibility.

Barbara Denempont, Exec. Director
