Spirituality and the Bhagavad Gītā
with Chase Bossart
Spirituality in the Bhagavad Gītā is an opportunity to understand how the lessons in the Bhagavad Gītā extend beyond daily living so that our actions may be guided by a deeper knowing. The Bhagavad Gītā is essentially a guide book for helping us to find the spiritual within the mundane, for seeing the divine within the ordinary, and feeling the presence of what is beyond the earthly moment while squarely in the midst of very earthly concerns.
The Bhagavad Gītā in particular has extremely meaningful and useful teachings on how to make difficult decisions and navigate tricky situations. Teachings that reach beyond our day to day experiences towards a deeper connection to the greater powers around us.
The understanding we gain from this text does not necessarily make our human journey less prone to messiness, but it does help us to navigate it all more peacefully, with clear connection to our purpose and in harmony with our knowing.
Join Chase Bossart for this two hour event where Chase will highlight and explore the core spiritual elements of the text as well some of the lessons intended to make navigating our human experience less conflicting.
