“When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.” - Mahatma Gandhi

Of all the sacred books of yoga wisdom, the Bhagavad-Gita is by far the most widely read and influential. Its impact radiates through all the traditions of Eastern spirituality. Illuminating how the conditioned mind is distracted and colored by attachment, fear, and anger, the Bhagavad-Gita provides a way of purifying the mind. Krishna speaks to Arjuna of a progression through five stages of spiritual evolution: duty, knowledge, wisdom, absorption, and love.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn to become a true mystic in the midst of worldly responsibilities
  • Deepen your knowledge and experience of yoga’s wisdom “off the mat”
  • Receive practical guidance for a steady, peaceful mind in our modern world of distraction
  • Penetrate vague approaches to Eastern thought through clear and practical mysticism
  • Reflect on the Gita’s wisdom in your daily life
  • Grasp the Bhagavad-Gita’s method of breaking negative mindsets and adopting life-changing spiritual outlooks
