Yoga and the Bhagavad Gita


September 17th through September 24th, 2023

Seven nights, six days, 30 hours of instruction

Description: The Gita is a religious poem that is presented as a conversation between a troubled warrior and his beloved friend. It is full of beautiful passages of philosophical depth and spiritual affirmation.  It has been read and studied by spiritual aspirants for over two thousand years.

Textbook:  The Bhagavad Gita, translated by Eknath Easwaran.

The process of spiritual development can be frustratingly slow. A mature intellectual conviction can sustain us through the inevitable ups and downs of our spiritual life. Intellectual conviction develops from an honest effort to understand what we are doing and why we are doing it.

In addition to its poetic and philosophic teachings, there is an allegorical reading of the Gita that presents it as a system of raja yoga.  We will explore this allegory and its application to chakra meditation.
