I had seen John Sherman almost 20 years ago on video interview with Gangaji, but I was in no way ready to begin the journey, and really did not become fully ready until the death of my wife of 25 years turned my life upside down, and forced me to become more honest with myself, in a way that now seems endless from my present point of view.

I had tried many approaches to self-healing and Self-Realization, but either did myself more harm, or felt hopelessly blocked and stuck. During a state of despair alternating with avoidance, I stumbled on the site justonelook.org. In the few months since I have been applying the practice, my outlook has begun to shift toward hope and the real possibility of recovery. My negative thought patterns do not have the grip on my attention to the degree they did, and I can see slow but steady progress toward what I think John would call "sanity".

I am grateful that both John and Carla are so accessible and giving, and that in spite of old self-defeating habits of mind, I can always find renewed understanding and encouragement on their site. Remorse and grief will no doubt continue to arise, but they will not overwhelm me as before. It's never too late for a 2nd chance.

My life has been gradually changing for the better after the looking. This thing is real, and as it turns out, actually only thing that puts an end to our endless need to fix something in our lives. The anxiety and ptsd symptoms i've had almost for a decade, seems to be dropping away by themselves. so what else there is to say but try it for yourself if you feel that there's more to life!

I support a number of nonprofits but this one is my favorite. It is very obvious John and Carla are not in this to line their own pockets- just the opposite. They live on a shoestring in order to bring us all a simple technique to improve our lives and end much of the suffering and fear that deeply underlies the human condition. They tirelessly work to repeatedly and patiently teach their powerful but very simple, focused practice. Thank you John and Carla!

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!

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.

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.

I was introduced to the John's message, the simple act of looking at one's self, over 15 years ago and it changed my life irrevocably. I have the utmost faith in the importance and relevance, both social and personal, of the work that the RiverGanga Foundation does. John and Carla are sincere, loving and open-hearted people with a time tested method for overcoming the fear and mistrust of life that is the source of our most profound longing for relief. I have been delivered from this, this longing, and am forever indebted to them both.

Several years ago, I was freely given what I have so desperately needed all my life: Myself! This gift, given me through the work of John and Carla at River Ganga, has not only freed me from an endless and fruitless search for peace, but allowed me the freedom to give of myself to others. I don't know why, or how, what John suggests ("look within") works; only that it does work. Happiness abides in this looking. I unequivocally support River Ganga, and recommend their work to all who seek the truth.
