Reviews for River Ganga Foundation

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

I give this nonprofit five stars because it has exceeded my expectations by miles. After hearing River Ganga's message I have become at home and satisfied with myself and my life in a way I never expected to be possible.

There is no longer an urgent need to fix anything or to get anything different from what I already have - be it material things, relationships or even my own psychology. Life is not a chore anymore! To say that the relief is immense is an understatement.

Before I tried their method called Just One Look I was always searching for a way to make myself feel safe and comfortable. I didn't see it at the time but I thought that if I only got what I wished for everything would be alright and I could live happily ever after. I put great stock in those ideas. But every time I got close to, or even realized those wishes, I was already busy thinking something else would do it, not even capable to fully enjoy my own achievements. It went on and on.

This works like nothing else. And I tell it from my heart that it works for everyone who tries it.

Please support this work with what you can, and don't forget try it and see for yourself if there's anything worthwhile here! It doesn't take long and you will not regret it, I promise.

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!

This is a great nonprofit that gives away valuable and potentially life-changing knowledge to the world, at zero cost. I discovered River Ganga Foundation almost a decade ago and have been continually impressed by their great work since then.

Led by founders John and Carla Sherman, the River Ganga Foundation makes available to everyone, free of charge, a simple, direct, and powerful approach to dealing with human fear and suffering. Through their website, discussion forums, and webinars, they have created a highly supportive community through which anyone can learn this approach, ask questions, and engage with others who are doing the same. Despite the fact that thousands of people actively participate in this community, I have found John and Carla to be incredibly responsive and accessible. As a long time spiritual and intellectual "seeker", I have to say that this work is unlike any other I have encountered, and is nothing short of revolutionary.

Since I finally recognised that I was without the fear of life my life has utterly change from hesitation and discomfort to joyfully and simply living. And this has come from the simple act of Looking AT ME that John describes. John and Carla live to share this understanding which is so remarkable successful for everyone who tries it.
I have listened to John speak since he began his work and the most remarkable thing is that he has shared his evolving understanding with us as it happened. He and Carla live just on what ever we can spare to keep this work going. It is abundantly clear that reaching as many people as possible is the motive for continuing this work.
I heartily recommend this work to everyone.

This simply works! John and Carla are doing something for humanity that no one has ever done before: simply re-connect with ourselves, at the beginning with ups and downs, but nevertheless becoming easier and freer from this rampant anxiety that drives us in neurosis or should I say, in stupidities, as John so aptly say. I'm becoming functional at work like I never did before, without so much effort as before and even having fun. This is no small feat: have fun to go to work, being 62 year's old. And even considering taking no retreat or at least stop dreaming to the day that I will at last retire and relax... No need, no need: life goes on and gives me a kick, and I don't worry any more about the future, or very seldom. Life is becoming an adventure, not a burden with me 'having to see to it' and worry about it. No more of this. And it is only since June 2015 that I really start to look at myself, and I can already testify that it works. Besides, I always wanted to 'get back to myself' but not knowing what this meant. Anyway, I keep giving a small donation each month to John and Carla, hoping this will help to keep them afloat and continue their extraordinary work!

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 and Carla offer a simple and effective means to end human suffering, for anyone with ears to hear it. Stripped of the mystique and romance that accompanies most prescribed roads to freedom, It's almost too simple, and it may be hard to believe that it actually works. But when you listen to John speak, you know that it has worked for him. I believe "the looking" has also created a shift in my own life. Personal anxiety is so missing in my daily experience that I sometimes feel nostalgic about it, which gives way to compassion. I find RiverGanga Foundation's full disclosure of finances quite unique, and refreshingly innocent for this world. They make it very easy to trust that any money donated to them will be put to good use.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have already suggested that they be more bold in their asking for funds, but it's a touchy situation, and sometimes I don't have money to give either, so it's hard to say what works.

Carla and John are the first who discovered a simple method that can be applied by every human.
If you apply this method you will be free from all psychological misery and you will be able to realise your full potential. This is all anybody could want from life.
And it is free.
I understand that what I write above is hard to believe. So try yourself. It is simple and cannot do any harm. If you followed so far, you will understand why it comes natural to donate.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish it grows to reach all people.
