Freedom. Truth. Discovery. It’s who you are. Have you ever felt that you’ve yet to be fully and truly alive? That just beyond reach, there might be something far more vast, immediate, and real? ´´What you’ve sensed was the ‘absolute You’ beckoning,´´ teaches Gangaji, ´´the boundless awareness and love that is your true nature.´´ And with The Greatest Discovery, you are invited to answer that call to this ecstatic expanse of being. A word-by-word, moment-by-moment journey into awakening When hearing Gangaji for the first time, many listeners - even those who’ve practiced self-inquiry on their own for years - describe a ´´direct transmission´´ of infinite and loving consciousness. It sounds ´´mystical´´, but as Gangaji often says, she is just an ordinary person. So what’s happening? ´´We create suffering,´´ she explains, ´´when we come to believe that we are the waves and weather of our physical, emotional, and mental turmoil - but who we really are is the ever-present and immutable water.´´ And by simply inquiring into these inner obstacles in the presence of others - and sharing each step thought-by-thought - Gangaji creates a heart-centered attunement that lofts us into the profound experience that her listeners describe. The Greatest Discovery marks a unique new offering from Gangaji. First, it’s a concentrated distillation of her current core teachings on dozens of real-life issues, including nine guided practices. But more than that - these intimate meetings are meant to be an immersive journey to spark the direct experience of awakening as you listen…answer the call…and embark on your own adventure into spiritual discovery. 1.

Dr. Ray Guarendi believes that parenting is too important to be taken seriously - and that goes double for grandparenting. As a father of 10, clinical psychologist, radio host, and author of many books about marriage and parenting, Dr. Ray has spent his career helping to strengthen families through a combination of Catholic theology, common-sense insights, and wry humor. Now, having become a new grandpa himself, Dr. Ray is turning his attention to the joyful, rejuvenating, and sometimes complicated subject of grandparenting. In Being a Grandparent: Just like Being a Parent...Only Different, he answers real questions from grands. Some wonder how being a grandparent will differ from being a parent, and want to mature into it with as few wrinkles as possible. Some are a daily presence in their grandchildren’s lives, perhaps even sharing a home with them and wanting their interactions to be as smooth as possible. Others live many miles away and fear yielding to the temptation of bribery to endear their distant grandbabies to them. Some are baffled as to why their own children are raising the grandkids so unlike they were raised - in practice, discipline, or morals. Others see their grandchildren as difficult to be around, and ask what, if anything, they can do about it. Whether you’re a ´´Grandma”, a ´´Poppy”, an ´´Opa”, or a ´´Nana”, Dr. Ray can help you navigate this second go-round with children in a way that mirrors God’s own unconditional love for us. You’ll learn to balance the expertise you’ve banked during decades as a parent with the emotional dynamics of this new stage of life. And best of all, you’ll get a little extra insight into savoring the true, unabashed joy of grandparenthood. Being a Grandparent makes a great gift for new grandparents and seasoned matriarchs and patriarchs alike. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr. Ray Guarendi.
