The Bhagavad Gita—the timeless manual for successful living and spiritual realisation. It contains a detailed set of instructions on overcoming adversity and reaching your fullest potential.  As the sourcebook of yoga and meditation, it contains the essential wisdom you need to live a fulfilling life.

The 4-day retreat in Snowdonia will include study sessions and lectures on the Gita, chanting sessions to help you pronounce the verses, Dru Yoga and meditation classes as well as walks in Snowdonia, weather permitting! You’ll learn how to apply the lessons of the Gita to your own self-development, and ways to introduce this beautiful text into your yoga or meditation classes.

A section of the world’s longest (and oldest) epic poem, the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Arjuna and his mentor, Krishna. Arjuna represents each one of us, seeking a more fulfilling and successful life. Krishna represents our inner wisdom, or the still voice of spirit within. Their conversation is the climax of what could be considered one of the world’s greatest dramas, in which two branches of a family are pitted against each other in a struggle between right and might that will determine the fate of the world.

Taking us beyond the cultural and topical content of ancient India, the Bhagavad Gita delivers a universal message relevant for each of us in our lives.  It shows us that the way we deal with our mind and emotions reflects in our thoughts, attitudes and outward conduct and teaches practical methods for dealing with the anger, grief and frustrations that can torment our minds and have affected the minds of human beings since pre-history.

The course will rely upon and cross-reference to material from The Dru Bhagavad Gita and the Bhagavad Gita DVD Series, the main source material.
