“We come together like this so that there can be a moment of raw and naked exposure of what is truly prayed for.”
Most of us spend our lives in a flurry of activity, searching for an elusive sense of personal satisfaction through security, physical pleasure, love, and even enlightenment. To retreat is to allow the time and space to stop following the mind’s habits of grasping and rejecting, running toward and running away, and to fully feel the exhaustion and futility of searching outside oneself for happiness. The Gift of Retreat is a collection of Gangaji’s monologues specifically selected to help one face the momentum of conditioned existence and to see what is revealed in that meeting. Here you can directly discover the effortless possibility of resting in the truth of your being every moment of your life.
