About the Event

" The Bhagavad Gita is a map and a guidebook. It gives us a  systematic overview of the territory [of life], shows various approaches  to the summit with their benefits and pitfalls, offers recommendations,  tells us what to pack and what to leave behind. More than either of the  others (the Upanishads and the Dhammapada), it gives the sense of a  personal guide. It asks and answers the questions that you or I might  ask. Questions not about philosophy or mysticism, but about how to live life effectively in a world of challenge and change." ~ Eknath Easwaran

The Bhagavad Gita is one of India’s ancient texts and is derived from The Mahabharata, the longest epic poem ever written.

The timeless Yogic Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita presents us with a simple map on living an authentic life in modern times. The central character is YOU, YOURSELF.

The context of the story is your life (the “field”) in which your story unfolds. It sheds light on the nature of mind, body and spirit and how we can grow beyond our limitations, building a resilience and reverence for life in an ever-expanding circle impacting on our environment.

In this workshop, Gita offers you a flavour of the Bhagavad Gita to meet the context of your life from a different lens. She shares with you the beginning of the story of the Bhagavad, what it means and what it gives us to enhance life.

Engaging in focussed reflections on….

· The body, the mind and what drives them

· Understanding our reactions in our own field of experiences

· The power we hold in the field

· The two opposing forces, fear, and inspiration, and throwing light on which influences us.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitations…..and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

Patanjali 500 BC

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go higher than you think “

“Einstein once said, the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking as when we created them. In other words, we must stand in a different place if we are to resolve our difficulties.” Mansukh Patel (Founder of Dru Yoga)
