The Yoga of Surrender

The Yoga of Surrender video- Gangaji yoga surrender challenges awakening

3.19.00 AM

Marin County, CA

Gangaji addresses a variety of challenges that often arise after an experience of deep awakening, particularly the tendency toward self-doubt. She speaks of the possibility, in the onslaught of day to day existence, of not knowing anything, not figuring out anything, and not doing anything to deflect from the exquisite fire of surrender.

Fire of Grace

Fire of Grace video- Gangaji Fire of Grace Boulder Colorado

3.17.01 AM

Boulder, CO

Packed with a multiple depth charge, Gangaji asks the question: What is it that you want from each other? She points to the difference in experience when one wants to “get” something as opposed to “give” something; and even deeper yet, beond getting and giving, to the possibility of simply “being.” She promises that in true surrender is a fire of grace in which everything takes care of itself.

Boulder, CO

As the heart nears opening, the fear of being used, of losing control, of being brainwashed into cultish behavior arises. Explaining that “Wherever your attention is, that is what’s using you,” Gangaji points to the clear alternative of surrendering all attention to what is glimpsed. Also in this meeting: three remarkable dialogues with children ages 7 to 18.

Your Final Desire

Your Final Desire video- Victoria BC Gangaji meeting final desire

September 10, 2016 AM
Victoria, Canada 

What if all your desires were fulfilled? Would that give you what you thought you wanted? Or is there an even deeper desire, something more essential, more all-inclusive, not contingent upon the ever-changing conditions of life?

In this video Gangaji leads you into an investigation of what it is you truly want, and what is your final desire.

“I’m not speaking of getting rid of your desires. I’m saying that it’s very useful, and finally imperative, to discover what your desires are, and what you expect you would get if those desires were fulfilled. Only then can you get to what is really wanted.”

Open Your Mind

Open Your Mind video- Stinson Beach Open Mind Gangaji retreat video

12.5.99 AM

Stinson Beach, CA

Here Gangaji covers many aspects of ordinary life and the search for truth- attachment to loved ones, responsibility as a parent and spouse, unnecessary clinging to books and knowledge, the student/teacher relationship, and so much more. She points again and again to the open mind through which consciousness is aware of itself and awake to itself, and the answer to every question is naturally revealed.

The Secret Beyond Freedom

The Secret Beyond Freedom video- Estes Park Colorado Gangaji secret of freedom

May 4, 1995 AM
Estes Park, Colorado

In this laughter-filled video from the nineties, Gangaji speaks of the “secret of freedom” that lies in our willingness to tell the whole truth to ourselves in every moment and every circumstance of our lives. She encourages us not to postpone – this gateway to freedom can only ever be now.

“Stop. Recognize who you are. Be embraced by that recognition. You are truth, you are love, you are consciousness in every aspect of your being, from the whole spectrum of your experience. They are not separate. You are the Totality.”

Meeting Karma After Meeting Grace

Meeting Karma After Meeting Grace

October 1, 2016
Los Gatos, CA

A true moment of grace, of fresh awe and innocence, is often followed by the desire for more. This seeking is born from the karmic drive to look outside and in the future for fulfillment and is the cause of much unnecessary suffering. Here, Gangaji invites us to not move in the midst of this karmic thrust and to discover the causeless joy that is always here.

“If bliss never leaves, good; if bliss leaves in the next instant, no problem. All of that is secondary to the recognition of the grace that transcends all states, that’s before, after, and during all states.”

 

Telling the Truth About Relationship

Telling the Truth About Relationship video- Ashland meeting Gangaji truth about relationship

October 17, 2015 PM

Ashland, OR

In this video Gangaji clarifies that a relationship lived in truth is first about telling the truth. She asks us “What do you want for cherished other?” “What do you want for yourself, finally and absolutely? Are you being true to that?”

“Any suffering in relationship is ultimately about how your story of the relationship generates suffering. In your willingness to look at the story, you have the opportunity to face what at first can be terrifying to face: it is all you causing the suffering … and that’s a relief, isn’t it?”

The Capacity to Be Yourself

The Capacity to Be Yourself video- resistance self doubt be yourself Gangaji event

August 19, 2017 AM  

San Rafael, CA

This video with Gangaji presents a variety of supportive conversations relevant to anyone interested in living a true life in peace. Topics include resistance to having resistance, self-doubt, how mental activity can obscure the living truth, our attachment to our stories, our deepest longings for truth, and so much more. If you are alive in a human body, there is something in this video for you!

“There is a wonder that the strata of our psyches, our human beingness with all its imperfections, even exists. Discovering a depth of support and self-confirmation doesn’t mean that your personality or your problems will get fixed. There’s just more of a capacity to be yourself.”

Here to Love One Another

Here to Love One Another video- Marin County Papaji Gangaji meeting totality love

November 5, 2005, AM
Marin County, CA

Inspired by Papaji’s words, “We are here to love one another,” Gangaji opens this beautiful meeting pointing to the totality of an omnidirectional love that is always available right here, right now, wherever you may find yourself.

The real challenge, she explains, is to include all, every aspect of yourself, with no exception: “We are gathered here in love, that’s the truth of the matter. And it is an all-encompassing love. It is deep beyond measure, and it allows the most superficial. It is beyond the comprehension of the mind, and it has no problem with the mind. It is more profound than any emotion, and all emotions are welcome. It is the truth of one another, which is one self.”
