Saturday, May 4, 7 am-3 pm
Cost: $60

The timeless truths of the Bhagavad Gita apply as precisely today as they did thousands of years ago. Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi, spiritual directors of Ananda Worldwide, have distilled the Gita’s lessons for us into 9 key themes—pearls of wisdom that we can carry with us in all circumstances and situations. This retreat will focus on the first of these themes, the Inner Conflict, presenting the battle of Kurukshetra as an allegory of the battle between our positive and negative tendencies. We each must fight this battle in order to regain our natural kingdom of peace, harmony, and happiness. 

The day will begin with a three-hour meditation followed by a short break, then the rest of the time will be made up of class, activities and discussion.

Bring a snack, lunch and questions.
