I cannot overstate the joy and satisfaction Carla & John Sherman has given me, and by extention most everybody I know, and will give to anybody living on this earth willing to listen. Their message is clear, free of charge and every human's birthright to hear. It is RiverGanga's task to get it out. Please help them with what you can, there is nothing more important. Don't believe me? Take this opportunity to hear what they have to say, you will not regret it. Just one look, it really is that simple!

Hi there, I am here to promote John and Carla Sherman’s work. Both of these people have won my heart until forever. I owe them both so much.

I am a Vietnam vet, and for years I suffered from PTSD. I tried everyway of getting better but to no avail. I was angry, and hateful. I dreaded life and took it out on the whole world. My wife and children had, had just about enough of me, and I could see that my marriage soon would disintegrate into shards. I was told by repatriation doctors that the kind of PTSD we diggers get is incurable. But I had to do something as the fear of life was eating into me, as well is into others.

Then one day I discovered John, and his wife on the net. Now, I had tried everything to get rid of this nonsense but to no avail. I read what john had to say in 2008 and straight away I was interested. He had a different angle on things than the others I had read. He told me ‘Just look at yourself’ which sounded quite crazy, but he had got my attention for some reason [Perhaps because I have always loved original ideas] So I started looking at myself; that was seven years ago, and I do it twice a day and always will. Within weeks I noticed a difference, but most of the changes come slowly and one does not notice then until he looks back at life. My personality has now changed completely. Instead of angry irritable and filled with fear, and hatred, I have an almost immovable smile on my face, and my heart is totally filled with joy. I think that my constant singing might get on some folks nerves, but I cannot help myself. To me every day is beautiful and I really do get high on life. All of this I owe to John and his lovely wife, Carla. Please readers take note of what I have written and give the looking a go. I could not be more sincere and honest if I tried. Thank you John and Carla. I owe you big time.

I did the looking several years ago and I must say the effects never cease to amaze me. There are so many facets of my personality that were formed and solidified due to the fear of life that it has taken a long time for many of these traits to fall away ..depression ,anxiety finally gone.From the first look at myself I felt I was now in the drivers seat ..its like I was handed my life back now it was up to me. Its not like someone telling you 'take responsibility' or how life should be without all these bothersome thoughts and emotions. In fact John and Carla have been immensely helpful along the way sharing their own experiences during the recovery period however never interfering with my individual process . Their advice over and over is simply to look at yourself and if you feel to share your experiences in the forum as a way to support each other.Their observation that we only have control over where we place our attention is a powerful help as I go along and immediately verifiable to anyone trying it. LIfe is a mystery for sure but this work exposes a practical truth with no spiritual elaboration..you are here and you can fully engage in your life without fear . Worked for me !

In my opinion and going by just the actual results that I have experienced in my day-to-day life, this Nonprofit organization should be on top of all the ones we have on this planet!. We have a large number of Nonprofit organizations and they do contribute to some well being or aspect of the people in some way on the physical level. However, the biggest problem is the suffering, misery, conflict, anxiety, fear etc. that reside in our minds and thereby influences how we perceive our life and live it. What this organization run by John and Carla is teaching and showing the way how we can get rid of all that and live a happy satisfactory and free form fear life that changes how we perceive everything else. What else is there to say? They provide very practical advise and methods that cab be followed to get there. I hope and wish everyone in the world gets a chance to hear about it and try it.

This nonprofit supports sanity and self reliance for ordinary humans all around the world, like me. The work being done here have ment everything for me, both personaly and professenially. My mind is recovering from the so called fear of life and the effects are wonderful. I think that this work is so promising that I now study to be a Psychologist. I belive that this method and wiew of adressing and working with Mental Health is revolutionizing. Please take a look at what this nonprofit are offering, you want regret it..

River Ganga Foundation is the place that supports knowledge and support around a mental act called, the act of inward looking. It is a very simple act that is performed by moving our attention to the feeling of being a person. That act provides a revolution in mental health, because when we see ourselves in this way we free ourselves from a kind of fear based context that is called, the fear of life.

I know how it is to live with a distance and fear towards my own life. But I also know how it is to live without it. To be free of the fear of life has made all the difference to me. It has totally revolutionized the way I relate to my life. It is amazing how such a simple act can be of such importance. I believe that this act would be of great help to everyone who tried it.

John Sherman manages to convey in a direct simple manner the simple act of inward looking that eradicates all fear misery aggression hatred etc.. from ones life. In later years he had divested himself of all spiritual and esoteric terminology to make this simple teaching accessible to all that hear it. It is a great blessing and hope for humanity.

I've watched many hours of john Sherman on u-tube - have always found him lucid and unpretentious.

The message of the organization made a lot of sense out of something i couldn't grasp for quite some time, just by spending a few moments reading and listening. A great investment in yourself and your environment.
