Bhagavad-gita Immersion Weekend

October 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - October 21, 2018 @ 5:00 pm EDT


Set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between the warrior, Arjuna, and his friend and charioteer Krishna, the Bhagavad-gita is the most essential wisdom text of yoga. The objective of this weekend immersion is to provide yoga teachers and serious students with insights into how to hear the Gita’s message and recreate Arjuna’s revelatory experience in our own lives.

Topics include:

  • The backstory of the Bhagavad-gita
  • How to identify the principle topics of the Bhagavad-gita
  • How to follow the dialog
  • Conceptions of identity and relationships
  • Karma, samsara, and liberation
  • The conception of the Supreme Person in the Bhagavad-gita
  • Ethics and violence in the Bhagavad-gita
  • Navigating translations, interpretations, and cultural frames of reference
  • How to chant the Gita’s Sanskrit verses
  • 8 life lessons from the Bhagavad-gita

Somehow or other, Arjuna has become entangled in a complex web of duplicity and intrigue that’s about to culminate in a devastating war. Faced with many of the emotions and problems that we encounter every day, Arjuna turns to Krishna for guidance. Through lecture, discussion, and experiential learning exercises, we’ll explore the wisdom of Krishna’s teachings in the Gita, discuss strategies for accessing transcendental knowledge, and see how we can practically apply these ancient teachings to our lives in the modern world.

This Weekend Immersion is open to both seasoned and novice teachers, serious yoga practitioners, and anyone interested in learning more about the implications and applications of traditional yoga philosophy.

$250 for weekend, $195 for Sol members and recent alumni.

**12.5 CEU’s available for yoga teachers.
