| /

“Where is the life you want?” Facing our own death often brings us to a spiritual path. But what about facing life? As much as we may fear death, we may also fear living. How can our very human lives be truly lived? How can they be rooted in love, not fear? In this meeting, Gangaji will share how each of us has the capacity to live a true and full life. For over thirty years, Gangaji has spoken to spiritual seekers from all walks of life. She shares the essential invitation of her teacher, H.W.L. Poonjaji— to “call off the search” and discover the lasting peace and fulfillment that is always present, and is in truth, who you are.


  • Be supported in facing strong emotions without acting out or repressing them

  • Be supported in the discovery inner peace and the direct experience of love as one’s true nature.


Gangaji, born Toni Roberson, grew up in Mississippi. Like many of her contemporaries, she searched for fulfillment through relationships, career, motherhood, subculture experiences, political activism, and spiritual practice. While she had never planned to go to India, it was on the banks of the Ganges River that her search ended. In 1990, Gangaji met her teacher, Sri H.W.L. Poonja, known as Papaji. Papaji gave Toni the name Gangaji and asked that she bring his teaching to the West. He said, “The Ganga now will flow in the West.” Today, as a teacher and author, Gangaji speaks to people from all walks of life inviting them to fully recognize the absolute freedom and unchanging peace that is the truth of one’s being. She is the author of The Diamond in Your Pocket: Discovering Your True Radiance, Freedom and Resolve: The Living Edge of Surrender, Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story, and You are THAT. She and her husband Eli Jaxon-Bear live in Ashland, OR.
