The Bhagavad Gita, hailed as one of the quintessential texts for yoga students and practitioners, has inspired folks for centuries, shaped cultures, and influenced leaders of social change movements. The 2000 year old lyrical teachings integrate varied thought traditions, while offering insight into how one can live a life of purpose, meaning and fulfillment. In this 3 hour program, Anjali will share a non patriarchal and intersectional perspective to the history and literature of the Gita, and invite you into embodying this wisdom in your work, relationships and roles in the world. There will be lecture, chanting, discussion and time for reflection.
(No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Contact email@example.com to inquire.)
The session will be recorded and the replay will be made available for those who are unable to attend live.
