Mysticism and the Bhagavad Gita.jpg

Begins May 4th

The Bhagavad Gita is a metaphorical holy work of India. The setting is a battlefield. The participants are two families of cousins. The main protagonist, Arjuna, is said to be the best archer in the world. Krishna, the other protagonist, serves as his charioteer. 

The text is mainly a conversation between the two. Arjuna, representing the human being aspiring towards Self knowledge, struggles with the thought of killing those he's known his entire life (aspects of self that no longer serve us). Krishna, or the Divine Self, aids Arjuna to understand the only way is towards Him, unity with the Divine.

The Bhagavad Gita Course is taught as part of our 200 hour teacher training. It is also a separate class. If one endeavors to understand yoga and explore a different philosophy on life, this course is for them.

​We'll also integrate the great mystic teachings of Rumi, Thomas Merton, Theresa of Avila, Paramahamsa Yogananda, Epictetus, Julian of Norwich, and others!
