Bhagavad Gita retreat @ home Dec 2020
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 2.5 day retreat at home will include study sessions and lectures on the Gita, some calming yoga and meditation, and chanting sessions to help you pronounce the verses. ! 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.
In this retreat at home we will give a focus on chapter 8 where you can get a deeper understanding of the workings of the universe.
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.
How will the course be delivered?
We will meet up online on December 5th & 6th. Each day will have 4 live contact hours and there will be a good break between sessions away from the screen.
There will also be an evening session on December 16 for two hours at 7pm to complete the workshop. If you’re unable to attend a live session you can always catch up as you will receive replays of all the live sessions.
I not only enjoyed it, I loved it! Thank you. It really helped me to feel my core stability muscles. I'm looking forward training them ;-)
If you want to physically strengthen your body and emotionally enhance your mind, Dru Yoga will give you the tools to take into your daily life and help you cope with the stresses of modern living.
Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
