MEETING WITH JOHN SHERMAN IN OJAI, CA

Teacher and author JOHN SHERMAN will make a presentation at The Ojai Retreat Cultural Center on Thursday, March 17, 2016.

John spent the last twenty years studying Ramana Maharshi’s Self-Inquiry. He spent the last sixteen years traveling with his wife and partner Carla to speak with people all over the country, and the last eight years meeting with people all over the world in his online seminars.

Over the years, John arrived at a clear understanding of the root cause of human psychological misery and developed an effective method that can be taught and passed on easily. John calls his method Looking at Yourself and he sees it to be the distilled essence of Self-Inquiry.

Anyone can understand and follow his method, regardless of their beliefs, education and background. The result is the elimination of the root cause of all human psychological misery and a regeneration of the mind that brings self-reliance and satisfaction with life regardless of circumstances.

Thank you for watching our Just One Look YouTube Channel.

Today we have a different kind of video for you. It's a 2 1/2 minute video with an important message.

We are in the final stages of editing John Sherman’s new book and we hope to publish it in January.

John Sherman spent the last 21 years in a comprehensive study of the Self-Inquiry of Ramana Maharshi. During that time, his work with thousands of people all over the world has brought him to a clear understanding of the root cause of the psychological problems that affect so many of us, and he has developed an effective method that has proved to reliably eliminate that cause and trigger a regeneration of the mind that brings self-reliance and satisfaction with life regardless of circumstances.

John sees his method to be the distilled essence of Self-Inquiry, but from a brand-new paradigm that is clear of the trappings of spirituality and religion. Anyone can understand and follow this method, regardless of their beliefs, education and background.

The first part of the book contains the complete instructions to follow John’s method of Looking at Yourself successfully as well as essays that explain the theory behind the method.

The second part presents the evolution of John's work in the last sixteen years through essays, testimonials from members of our community, newspaper articles, and interviews dating from 1997 through 2015.

The book will be a hardcover volume with about 500 pages and we will publish it ourselves through Just One Look Press.

We would like to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of typesetting, cover design, printing, and promotion.

Will you make a donation to help us get John's new book published?

Your tax-deductible donation will go to the RiverGanga Foundation, the public, non-profit organization we operate to provide financial support for our work.

Episode 2: "The Mind"

The sense of self, the experience of a me who has a relationship with its own mind, and the appearance of the mind itself occur in the mind. Mind is where all the joy, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, happiness, and unhappiness occur, along with the recognition and definition of those states.

Over the centuries, we have created deeply appealing ideas that hold the mind responsible for all the trouble we face as human beings. From this springs the deep-seated, ancient tendency to demonize the mind, which takes many forms.

In our work, we do not hate the mind and we do not seek to erase it, silence it, or transform it. We seek only to heal it from the sick fearfulness that has warped it and has spoiled our experience of our lives and of our very self.

In this episode, John Sherman speaks about the nature of the human mind, its source, its content, and its relationship to the brain.

This is a repost of the first episode of the series The Power of Attention, Conversations with John Sherman.

We reposted this episode because the audio in the previous version is slightly distorted.

The audio in this version is still not as good as we would like it to be. We apologize for this. The next episodes will be better. Thanks for your patience and your support!

Episode 1: "Answers to Common Questions About the Practice of Focused Attention"

John Sherman answers five common questions about the practice of focused attention.

1. Is the practice of focused attention the same as mindfulness meditation?

2. Is the practice of focused attention a matter of declining to attend to unwanted thoughts and feelings?

3. Is it really possible to decide what you attend to?

4. Does focusing attention bring about altered states and mystical experiences?

5. Is focused attention a form of self-inquiry?

Please share this video with your friends. You may also embed it on your own website.

If you have a question that you would like John to address in this series, please email it to us at youtube@justonelook.org.

We hope you enjoy the new series!

Story
Tagline
One cause. One cure. It's that simple.
Introduction
Our work, our purpose, and the goal of all our efforts is to make one simple insight into the root cause of all human misery and one simple act of inward looking universally available and accessible within the entire human community.

Since 1999, John Sherman meets with people from all walks of life to speak about the fear of life, which is what spoils human life, how that comes to pass, what gives rise to it in the first place, how it manifests in the life in general, and what every person can do to be free of it once and for all. In these meetings, John speaks from his experience, listens to reports, and answers questions. Carla Sherman, his wife, organizes the events and is the executive director of the non-profit foundation that provides the financial support for their work.
