Untroubled Spaciousness

Untroubled Spaciousness

Meet Andrew Storm, a Sydney volunteer since 2005 who’s legacy to the Gangaji Foundation in 2018 passed to all of us the opportunity to rebuild Gangaji’s website, making Gangaji and her teaching more easily accessible and available to a global audience. Despite a long struggle with serious mental illness, Andrew was able to realize that none of that touches the truth of who he is.

The Practice of Desire

The Practice of Desire

The Need to Heal

Support is Everywhere

Gangaji in conversation with a man who has been living with chronic depression for much of his life. He comes from a family with a long history of mental illness. Three of his four grandparents committed suicide when he was growing up. It’s not an easy legacy to live with. When you meet him though, it is not the darkness that strikes you, although it’s there, but the light that is shining through. Gangaji has been a huge part of his healing journey.

I Want to be Compassionate All the *#$%* time

I Want to be Compassionate All the *#$%* time

If you could have just one wish what would it be? In this lively interchange with Gangaji in March 2019 one woman’s greatest wish is to be a compassionate being all the time (but not in quite the way you might expect…) This clip is about being willing to experience emotions directly, to stop reaching for something else, and to drop into the vulnerable awareness of the spaciousness of just being.
