The Art and Science of Self-Realization: Bhagavad-gita Immersion $45 | Single Session ..... $80 | Saturday Immersion ..... $99 | 3-module Weekend ..........Session 1: Developing Spiritual Vision: Seeing Through the Eyes of the Bhagavad-gita builds a foundation for a paradigm-shifting transformation of our experience of the world. Session 2: Eight Life Lessons from the Bhagavad-gita explores the take-aways from the first session: what do we learn from this paradigm-shifting transformation of our experience and how can we apply those lessons in a practical way? Session 3: Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti: The Yoga of the Bhagavad-gita completes the cycle with a detailed analysis of the Gita's systematic exposition of varieties of yogic practices and the metaphysics behind them. This 3-part series is good for students hoping to dig deeper into the philosophy of this cornerstone text, and it is an excellent complement for folks who are in or have completed a Teacher Training program. Whether standing on it's own as a complete unit or for workshop drop-ins, this weekend immersion is one "for the books."
Session One: Developing Spiritual Vision with Hari-kirtana Das Sat, Jul 29, 2017 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Spiritual vision is the transcendental level of experience characterized by a sense of intimate connection to all existence. At this level we see our selves and others as eternal spirit souls, and feel deep love and attachment for the Supreme Being, whom we see, directly or indirectly, everywhere. In this session we'll learn how to see the world through the eyes of the Bhagavad-gita, explore the implications of spiritual vision, identify the obstacles to spiritual vision, and a map out progressive path toward acquiring spiritual vision.
Session Two: Eight Life Lessons with Hari-kirtana Das Sat, Jul 29, 2017 at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The dialog of the Bhagavad-gita is set in the midst of a battlefield: the great warrior Arjuna has become entangled in a complex web of duplicity and intrigue that’s about to culminate in a devastating war. Plagued by doubt, fear, anger, and despair, Arjuna turns to Krishna for guidance. In this workshop, 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 in our modern lives and relationships.
Session Three: The Yoga System with Hari-kirtana Das Sun, Jul 30, 2017 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Bhagavad-gita describes four systems of yoga: karma-yoga, ashtanga-yoga, bhakti-yoga, and jnana-yoga. In this session, we'll look at each system as discrete practices, as a 'yoga ladder' that progresses to an ultimate goal, and as integral parts of a complete system of spiritual awakening. Participants will learn how yoga works as a means to defy the laws of physics, describes a spiritual technology to reverse-engineer the process of material creation, provides a meta-physical foundation for understanding the physical world, and awakens pure love within the heart of the practitioner.
