Pure and lasting contentment and joy can only be found through self-understanding. Bhagavad Gita is a seminal yoga text containing the wisdom that can lead us to a level of self-understanding untouched by sorrow, anger, and doubt. Through a touching introduction of inevitable personal conflict and internal struggle to which every human can relate, Bhagavad Gita then teaches of karma, intuition, meditation, devotion, and more as paths to the self.
This weekend of in-depth study of the Gita includes four sessions:
I. The Battle of the Self: Conflict Creates Suffering
II. Karma Journey: Connecting to the Self in Others
III. Yoga Journey: Connecting to the Self Within
IV. Bhakti Journey: Trustful Surrender
In addition to these four in-depth study/practice sessions, participants have the opportunity to explore the 400 acre wooded campus of the Himalayan Institute, sip tea with a fellow yogi at the tea shop, rejuvenate with services from the spa, or even meditate in the Sri Vidya Shrine, with group prayers led at 6:00 am and 9:30 pm each day.
