Antoinette (Toni) Roberson Varner was given the name "Gangaji" by her teacher, H.W.L. Poonja, in 1990. Before that meeting, she had spent decades searching for lasting happiness. She had immersed herself in activism, psychological self-expression, and finally, various spiritual practices. Her meeting with her teacher, called "Papaji" by his students, allowed her to deeply inquire into herself. Through this inquiry, she discovered silent awake consciousness, and she realized that as herself, as everyone. Papaji asked that she invite all whom are interested to inquire and discover for themselves, and for the past 19 years she has traveled the globe offering this invitation, and supporting others' deep inquiry.

She is the author of Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story, The Diamond in Your Pocket: Discovering Your True Radianceand You Are That. She lives with her husband, Eli Jaxon-Bear, in Oregon and offers retreats in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Visit her website for more information.
