Bhagavad Gītā Workshop
Age-Old Guidance for Navigating Tough Situations
The teachings of the Bhagavad Gītā are immediately helpful in daily life, especially in making tough decisions.
Through the story of a warrior facing an agonizingly difficult decision, the Bhagavad Gītā is the record of the amazing guidance that helps the warrior, Arjuna, decide what to do. The explanations in this ancient text still apply to us today and guide us in finding lasting contentment, even when confronted with the most challenging choices.
By following Arjuna’s process, we are given powerful tools for finding and connecting with our most essential self.
Together, we will uncover the depth of the Bhagavad Gītā’s wisdom while exploring how it applies to life today.
Come join us as we explore one of the most influential teachings of Yoga.
This workshop is open to anyone interested in the text and who is open to discovering new things about themselves.
