The Bhagavad Gita & Yogic Wisdom - From Confusion to Clarity
The goal of all yoga is unity – union with our highest Self.
Throughout the ages, people have attained this mystical awakening – experiencing joy and freedom in action. Yoga philosophy, and in particular the Bhagavad Gita, is a manual for reaching this awakened state – while living in our practical, modern world.
This unique weekend is a deep dive into the experience of the Bhagavad Gita for self-transformation.
The Bhagavad Gita is a user manual for life that answers our age-old questions about how to live our best life today.
The Gita retreat gives you a deeper understanding of the sacred teachings of the Bhagavad Gita which can help us find contentment despite the uncertainty of our current world.
During this online retreat, you’ll experience 8 potent sessions with Dru’s international presenters, including Rita Goswami, John Jones, Petra Opsteeg, Ruth Boaler, Jenni Jones, Susan Kulas, Pauline Ward and Ned Hartfiel – who are skilled in helping students navigate life with yogic wisdom.
You will be invited to awaken within you the timeless magic of the Gita, unlock insights and learn techniques that brings the Gita alive every day.
"When I read the Bhagavad Gita for the first time, I felt a sense of overwhelming gratitude to God for having let me live to be acquainted with this work. It must be the most profound and sublime thing to be found in the world.”
Wilhelm von Humboldt, 1827, Founder of Humboldt University in Berlin
