Outliving The Limitation Of Our Personal Stories with Gangaji

$1.99

Product Description

The stories we tell ourselves about who we are, our childhood, our memories of the past, our life in the present, are like clothing we put on. These narratives provide us with endless hours of entertainment. Sometimes they’re horror stories and sometimes comedies. But do these tales tell us who we truly are? Gangaji says, “For better and worse, our stories become the reference points for defining who we are, who we are with, and what it all means.” So, then how do we separate ourselves from this narrative and uncover the truth of our lives? To help us discover ways to do this is our guest, spiritual teacher, Gangaji. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
