Life altering. This is a website that transformed my life. The people behind it are the most selfless , genuine and generous people. They have worked so hard to keep this work afloat and freely available to all. They deserve all the help they can get, because 'the looking' could change the world ! As a mental health professional myself, I highly recommend that everyone do the looking.

John and Carla Sherman and the River Ganga Foundation provide an important public service by aiding the development of peace in each individual soul and thereby increasing peace in the world at large. On the Just One Look website they offer teachings through online events, essays, videos, audios, and books. Much of the work is free of charge. John also teaches at live events and his talks can be found on You Tube. I have found his teachings unique and very helpful, as have so many others. This organization truly merits support.

River Ganga with John and Carla made me realize that my efforts to become what I thought I should be, is a lousy strategy that will never really pay off. Their suggestion for a strategy to become satisfied with life as it is, is simple and possible to perform. And it works, don't worry about that. Just try.

The River Ganga Foundation is making John Shermans work for humanity possible. John has developed a deeply unique and profound understanding of why we humans end up creating such a heavy mess out of this wonderfull world that we live on. The understanding he is working to convey to us all, is ahead of the paradigms that underlies all the misery that we have been creating up to this day. Based on this understanding he has introduced a simple medicine that will change the foundation for our selfdestructive behavior. This medicine, whic is a specific and concrete act, is simple, free and available right where you are. And in my own experience, it works. It is of the greatest importance to all of humanity that John Shermans message is brought out for everyone to hear.

It was through John and Carla's work that I was able, finally, to find the key to a door I'd been banging on for a lifetime. Their clear and direct proposition is easy to digest, and makes all the difference.
I will always be grateful for what John and Carla offer, and for their tireless striving to bring this simple and powerful message to the world. so that as many people as possible may watch fear and suffering drop away from their lives.

I have followed John and Carla's work for more than 15 years. During this time, they have been relentless in offering themselves to announce to all what brings peace and happiness to anyone. Just one look, just turn the attention inwardly, and the result is an almost magical transformation to what sages have taught for millennia. Suffer no more, the kingdom is truly within. All thanks to them for their devotion to what is true.

John's approach to life is a unique (and really the only) way to see for yourshelf the truth and break the spell of "life". This is what happened in my case and my wife's too. John showed us, in the simplest and most natural way, how to look at ourselves and indeed through the deceiving surface of our personas. After a confusing period into the void, the personas, the persones, me and my wife are still here, joyful, playful, totally human and totally free. Our human nature are not a prison anymore; it's a toy, a miracle, a board on which we surf onto the waves of the unknown! John and Carla are devoted to get people free and through Riverganga they share to all of us their teaching and friendship.
Thank you both,
George & Evelina

John and Carla Sherman suggest that life may be presently lived in a "context" of fear. They say this "context" is obviated in a simple act of "looking at me". This friendly recommendation for me earns my gratitude with lifelong financial support for their continued efforts.

The simple teaching giving by John Sherman turns a light unto what you really are in a very direct manner . Whether it's an end of something or the beginning of some thing else , this is really worth giving a try , the consequence being far greater from what you could possibly imagine !

Since watching John's videos and reading the basic philosophy behind his work my life has changed dramatically. What on the surface may seem inconsequential, I found that doing the suggested inner work opened up a way for me to become more myself - if that makes any sense. I love this work. It is so basic. So logical. And I recommend it to everyone.
thanks John and your team.

John and Carla have selflessly pointed towards the benefits of simply looking within, to observe what it is to Be. To see that this is one thing that is always available, regardless of one's life situation. Simply looking, and finding Peace and tranquillity in this moment. Many thanks!

I once read that the root cause of all human suffering, misery, aggression, hatred and self-betrayal is a false belief about what I am. The only solution for this problem is the truth. This was an early statement in the young days of Just One Look. The message has been refined and sharpened over the years to focus on the solution. This invitation to look needs to be made available to everyone. If you are reading this, then there is looking, it's very possible that what's looking is what you are looking for, but you need to look for yourself.

IN THIS WORLD, WHERE FEAR AND ANXIETY SEEM TO BE ACTIVE AT EVERY LEVEL - FROM THE RELATIONSHIP TO ONESELF, AS WELL AS TO THE WORLD, JOHN AND CARLA HAVE WORKED TIRELESSLY, OFTEN AT THE EDGE OF GOING BROKE (REALLY,) TO BRING THEIR SIMPLE BUT PROFOUND MESSAGE TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
PERSONALLY, AFTER SEARCHING FOR PEACE AND HAPPINESS FOR MANY DECADES, THEY SHOWED ME A DOOR TO FINDING THE PEACE AND HAPPINESS I ALREADY AM. THE SLOW CHANGE FROM SEEKING TO FINDING, AND THE GRATITUDE FOR FINDING THIS "DOOR" CANNOT BE EXPRESSED IN WORDS.
IF ANY WORK DESERVES SUPPORT - THIS IS IT!!!!

The just one look was a important part of my journey.

It should be available for all of us, so others can benefit too.

In these times it is not easy to decide where your donation should go. The needs in the world is massive and so is the requests for donation's from great work being done in different areas around the world. I wish I had the financial possibility to say yes to every request for donation and support many of the great initiativs out there.

But I dont have that financial possibility. And I have had to decide for my self where my money is best spent and where they, in the long run, makes the biggest impact for as many as possible. And there is a couple of central reasons to why The River Ganga Foundation did become that place for me to donate too. Reasons that are very much linked to me personally.

The River Ganga Foundations main work is to spread a method related to mental health called The Just One Look Method. That method destroyed for me a kind of general mental misery that I wasn't aware of that I had until it was gone. And I saw that that mental misery had been the cause for much of my life´s suffering. A suffering that I presumed was a natural part of being alive as a human being. I eventually also come to see that this general mental misery was the main cause for much of other peoples suffering and craziness too. The process of "mental recovery" finally resulted in the insight that the suffering in the world is actually nothing but the suffering in the minds of many.

My conclusion is therefore that The Just One Look Method supported by The River Ganga Foundation goes to the root of the human problem and heals it for good. My donation therefore goes to support that no new suffering is created, rather than trying to fix everything that our collective craziness has created. And I see it as a privilege to be able to be helpful in this way. To see the true nature of human suffering and also get the chance to do something about it that actually works.
