This community class will explore the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, one of the core scriptures of Yoga. The Gita is a conversation between Prince Arjuna and his teacher Krishna on philosophical concepts that are important to the present day. The text addresses some of the core human questions that we all have, such as “Who am I?” “What is my purpose?” “Why am I here?” and “How can I best contribute to my community and the world?”
This class will introduce you to the history, story and key concepts within the Gita chapter by chapter. We will read the text, taking inspiration from specific verses and connecting them with specific struggles we face in everyday life.
The format of this class will include textual reading, group discussion, chanting in Sanskrit and meditation. Drop-ins are welcome. Every class will focus on a specific chapter and core excerpts from the Gita.
Sundays 6:30 – 8 pm. Starts June 7th!
This will be an on-going class every Sunday.
