More Details

What does it mean to live our lives in fulfillment and responsibility? Gangaji brings into focus the deepest possibility of our lives as we walk the razor’s edge of our divinity and humanity.

Our day-to-day lives are our spiritual path. During this course, we will discover how we fall into a fundamental spiritual trap: segmenting aspects of lives, then initiating and perpetuating unnecessary wars between those aspects.

What is really happening when our emotions are raging and our thoughts are spinning? How do we reconcile political responsibility and personal spirituality? How do we face our idealizations of how we think we should feel, and what we think we should do, with how we actually feel and what is actually happening?

Together with Gangaji we will see how to stop that war and be fully present to living a realized life—a life that includes all and discovers spacious peace everywhere.

Course Description

Week 1:  What is Fulfillment? What is Responsibility? (September 18, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
Being a limited form of expression, language can pose a particular challenge as we move from a concept of fulfillment to the direct experience of fulfillment. In our first gathering we examine what we really mean when we are speaking about fulfillment and responsibility. Though inquiry, Gangaji helps us recognize how to directly experience the causeless fulfillment at our core and embrace the responsibility that naturally arises within us.
 
Week 2:  How We Start and Perpetuate the War (September 25, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
Every war, internal or external, has a build up to a starting point. And in the midst of every war that has been started, there is an ever-present choice point to end it. What can we do when don’t know “how it got started” and we remain lost in the battle? In this meeting Gangaji addresses the initial and final stages of how we go to war, and how we can stop the war at each stage.
 
Week 3: The Trap of the Measuring Stick (October 2, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
One of the many powers of the thinking mind is the power of comparison. While the power to compare is enormously useful for the survival of the individual person and the whole human species, it also becomes one of the greatest obstacles on our spiritual path. Gangaji leads us through a great experiment of putting down our measuring sticks to discover what is both always here and always immeasurable.
 
Week 4: Facing Our Emotional and Mental Storms (October 9, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
We naturally desire more bliss and less despair. We naturally prefer more clarity and less confusion. But we can also see that our avoidance of some emotional and mental states and the grasping of others, leads us to suffer unnecessarily. What happens when we are willing to experience it all? Gangaji supports the group in discovering the true capacity of the heart.
 
Week 5: Relationship (October 16, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
One of the great opportunities for deepening on the spiritual path is relationship. Mother, brother, lover, teacher…who are we to each other? What does it mean to be both fulfilled and responsible in relationship? Examining the power of projection and its role in our day-to-day relationships, we can penetrate the illusion of separation to see the deepest truth of relationship.

Week 6: How Will Your Life Be Used? (October 23, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
When we are willing, each of us has the possibility to live in alignment with the truth of our being. We have the choice to live freely, authentically and responsibly. Together we’ll explore what it means to live authentically as well as the choices we have to rebel or surrender to any particular role or circumstance.

Week 7: Trust Yourself (October 30, 5 PM US Pacific Time)
To trust yourself is to step outside all ideas of how you think you should be and experience yourself as you truly are. To allow yourself to be as you are is the end of the spiritual search, the end of the path. No ledges, no concepts, no holds, just free falling. Finally, who you are is all that is needed, and all that is here. Are you ready to trust that? In our final meeting, Gangaji takes us through this gateway to peace.
