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. Niklas L. Hanson

John and Carla operate from the heart with a genuine goal to help mankind. The simple act of looking helps people to decide where to focus their attention; thus clearing their mind from the usual clutter of modern times. Thanks for your hard work and caring. xo Love you, Nancy

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

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

I first heard about Carla and John's simple method "Just One Look" about two years ago, and I am now completely certain that it works. Before "looking" I was always focusing on negative thoughts and how difficult and depressing everything is. Now I more or less automatically focus on what's decent and beautiful in life instead. And it really makes all the difference! Outwards I am more happy and constructive, and inwards there is more meaning and joy to everything - even the bad parts. It's like Carla and John gave me a key to my own life and I am forever grateful for their work. Everything they do is free of charge and anyone can try this for themselves. Truly a wonderful non-profit!

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 had no idea what the fear of life meant to me until it finally disappeared and I realized just how fresh and open life could be. By "Looking At Me " I discovered that I am always here always the same regardless of circumstance. Recently this has given me the inner fortitude to face a very real reason to live in fear, that of being a Jew whose relatives went through the holocaust. This process opened a deep well of compassion and reinvigorated my creativity. I am forever grateful to John and Carla for persisting in bringing this wonderful method to all who are willing to try it. Helen Waterhouse

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 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.

Shermans work is great. It enables people to make the first step toward different and fullfilled living. And amazingly they do it for free.

Help them to carry the sparl into the darkness!

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.

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!
