Silent Retreat with Gangaji
Fallen Leaf Lake

May 22-27, 2022

Attending a residential retreat with Gangaji offers a unique opportunity to withdraw from the normal distractions of your everyday life and inquire into what you truly want.

"This retreat is so that the peace of who you are can never go overlooked in any degree ever again..."

With the support of Gangaji, other participants, and in the pristine, contemplative setting of Fallen Leaf Lake, you can embark on a deep inner dive of self-discovery. This is the gift of retreat!

With Self-Inquiry, Gangaji will guide and support you throughout the retreat in turning your attention away from your thoughts and into the direct experience of what is always here - peace itself, consciousness itself.

In Daily Meetings with Gangaji, your questions and reports are welcome and essential to the vitality of the retreat.

Our time together may also include meditation, chanting and video presentations.

From Previous Retreats

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 on retreat 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 silent 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.
