From Previous Participants

Seeing Gangaji in person, and being able to enjoy her in perhaps the most beautiful, peaceful setting I have ever been to, are blessings beyond my wildest dreams.
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.
Time to unplug in the presence of Gangaji and the fellowship of others.
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.
