Yogis intuitively know that the shift of the seasons requires a period for quiet self-reflection. Yet our holiday traditions sometimes make us feel our most scattered selves. Our time in celebration with family and friends is an opportunity to see who we were – and who we are becoming. The Bhagavad Gita can be a powerful tool to help us explore these holiday themes. The ancient text can help us to understand the dynamics and hidden power of relationships – with family, friends and ourselves.
Join us for an authentic holiday celebration: a time to come together with other yoga practitioners to contemplate hope, action and how community can support our personal intentions.
This workshop will offer textual reading of the Bhagavad Gita, commentary and discussion an an informal atmosphere, with some light yoga practices. Chai and other teas will be served!
We will work from the Bhagavad Gita translation by Graham Schweig, but any copy you bring is welcome
Please bring your copy of the Gita to the workshop. If you do not have one, a variety of editions will be provided.
The chapters are short and enlivening. If you have the book, please read chapters 1 and 2 before coming.
