Ashland 4-Day Retreat
Ashland, OR,
October 3 - 6, 2024

A retreat is an opportunity to step away from your usual activities and bring your full attention to the truth of your being.

“I’m supporting each of you in living your life fully as peace and as a human being with choices.”​

During this 4-day retreat with Gangaji, you can bring your full attention to what you truly want in this lifetime. Rather than spending time fixing yourself, the opportunity of self-inquiry with Gangaji is to recognize what is already whole, already free. It is absolutely possible to stop following the momentum of your past history and well-worn narratives, and directly experience the lasting peace and fulfillment that is your true nature.

Over the course of the retreat there will be six meetings with Gangaji, and our time together may also include video presentations and meditations.

The Opportunity of Self-Inquiry

  • Surrender the habit of fixing yourself and discover what is already whole and complete.
  • Take a deeper responsibility for the integrity of your life.
  • Stop the momentum of your past history and directly experience natural fulfillment.
  • Rest in and live from your truest nature.
  • Discover home is where you are.

From Previous Participants

Being at the Retreat with everyone and Gangaji was life changing for me. Back home, life is, well…life— simple and yet spacious and real. There’s an immediacy, a soft strength here to meet life as it unfolds. It feels new and delicate and at the same time deep and known. So thank you, thank you thank you Gangaji and all for all the work that you all do to make these events possible.
In meeting with Gangaji and others heart to heart, I found what I have been searching for all my life. I was here all along. Now I can stop the search.
The message you share is so profound, so heart opening, so true. Each meeting is such a delight, such a support on the path. I enjoyed so much hearing you talk about the wonders of life, if it is a bee, a beetle, a tree, a plant...I realize that I am not a part of life, but actually life itself. What a joy, what a pain, what a love!
There are no words for the gratitude. Life was so heavy and such a burden. Now I am here as love itself.
The utter simplicity of remembering who I am, in the beauty of nature, with loving fellow travelers, is priceless.
