The Call Home and Other Life Passages

In early October, Gangaji will hold a retreat exclusively for With Gangaji members at the Presentation Center, a peaceful 67-acre oasis tucked among the redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains. During our five days together, we will have the opportunity to come together in community, spend time in silence, and to inquire without the usual distractions of our daily lives. Inquiry with a committed group is always a special occasion.

Gangaji has chosen this time of gathering for With Gangaji members as the launch of her new online course: The Call Home and Other Life Passages.

In the realm of experience, there are moments in our human lives we consider pivotal or archetypal, moments that cut across all cultural, social, and economic boundaries. Some call them passages, lessons or initiations, but their nature is life changing. They are transcendent gateways in the mystery, a part of an ancient language that points us back to that which precedes spokenness and reveals that we are and always have been home.

For this retreat, With Gangaji members from all parts of the world will come together to explore the real meaning of these life passages and the role they play in self-realization. Our time together is dedicated to truly being "home."

This 5-day retreat includes seven in-person meetings, plus the Sunday With Gangaji webcast. For a complete description of upcoming webcasts, read more here.

Two full days of this retreat will be held in silence. To spend this time in silence, alone together and with Gangaji, is a rare opportunity to rest deeply in the discovery of your own being and receive the natural support of like minds and hearts. Throughout the event, Gangaji offers you her deepest support and guidance in meeting yourself fully.

To register for this retreat you must first be a member of With Gangaji.
