Gangaji – Self-Inquiry: Falling into Yourself

Published on Apr 14, 2016

A clip from Gangaji’s New Video Compilation, Self-Inquiry: Falling Into Yourself.

“To consciously rest is to be at home. To be at home is to be naked to yourself. Self-inquiry is always an invitation home, an invitation to yourself.”

The invitation to Self-Inquiry is the very core of Gangaji’s teachings, the living truth that was shared by her teacher and her teacher’s teacher. In this powerful selection of monologues and interactions we are reminded of the capacity we have as human beings to self reflect, to put aside assumptions and elaborations and taste reality directly. Self-Inquiry, Gangaji tells us, is about interrupting our natural instinct to follow the outward flow of thinking and shift that attention back toward the source. This requires the ruthless surrender to face what we have been avoiding, but the result is radical good news. The realizable good news of the Truth of who you are.

“Miracles Now” Gabrielle Bernstein at Wanderlust’s Speakeasy

Sometimes it feels very easy to slip into the void of negative thinking. In this Speakeasy for Wanderlust Squaw Valley 2014, Gabrielle Bernstein makes it even easier to right the ship and step back into the light.

Gabby shares some intimate stories from her personal life, from defining childhood traumas to very recent examples of how she can sense it when her thinking enters into the judgmental and separatist mindset. From these experiences, she demonstrates how to pull out of those thoughts, and to choose the light.

“I challenge you as you go from tent to tent here at Wanderlust and you get onto that mat and you say, ‘My practice wasn’t that great this morning,’ or, ‘I shouldn’t have eaten that vegan brownie,’ or, ‘I wish I was as good as that teacher but I’ll never get there.’ I challenge you, when you’re in the separation, to choose again, and to open your eyes to the light that is around you. When you’re having those moments of separation and judgment, I invite you to open up, to choose again, to ask. You’ll be restored, you’ll be rejuvenated, and all that separation will be dissolved by the light.”

You can apply this to even the smallest decisions and moments in your life, or if what you’re seeking is a larger life overhaul, Gabby has the tools for you, too. She gives you three very straightforward steps to take when you want to finally make the changes you know you need to turn your life around. It all starts with four simple words: “I want to change.”

Dive into this Speakeasy with Gabby to learn more about:

• how forgiveness can be used as a tool to move forward in your life,
• why asking for what you need is a practice that you need to incorporate into your daily life,
• how to tune in to witness the miracles all around you,
• to recognize that no matter what your profession, your job is not the spreadsheets or the profits, but your job is to ‘be the light.’

Gabby says it best: “When we dwell in the light and the joy of who we are here to be, all boundaries are removed.”
