What is this training and why should I join?
In this time of re-awakening can we commit to the true cause of our practice? To live in a state of connection to the divine?
Whatever you do, make it an offering to me – the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering. In this way you will be freed from the bondage of karma and its results both pleasant and painful. 9:27-28
It is important to acknowledge that the Bhagavad Gita is one of the most influential and important texts established within Hindu tradition. As a yoga practitioner or teacher you may have heard it briefly touched on in a training or class, or you may have already read it! While the Gita itself could be studied for a lifetime, we felt that by compiling a 10HR study, it would be enough to “dip your toes” into this incredibly deep and powerful epic.
It is the story of the warrior Arjuna and his charioteer Lord Krishna (the Supreme Godhead personified). As Arjuna approaches a battle against his own family he finds himself reluctant and questioning many of life’s deepest questions. A dialog ensues that wanders to various and FACINATING subjects including renunciation, the cycles of energy, the importance of meditation, the fluctuations of time, karma, and even describing in detail how to die and find eternal bliss and peace.
For any yogi or spiritual aspirant, this course will give you the chance to explore these themes with an experienced teacher and life practitioner of these topics. We welcome you to think of this as a book club un-like any you’ve experienced before with practical guidance on how to access and experience a connection to your deepest self.
In this 8 week course participants will read through the text The Bhagavad Gita by Eknath Easwaran and together we will move through chapter by chapter, touching on the most important and applicable verses. Each week we will also meditate and find opportunities for self-reflection and personal practice.
