Price: 350 Euro - 21% IVA added if paying by bank transfer/credit card
In three days of exploring this beautiful scripture through asana, pranayama, and meditation, as well as pouring through the poetry. You will learn how Arjuna’s struggle mirrors our personal struggle of doubt and faithlessness. By applying Krishna’s wisdom to our own problems, we can find a method of defeating the enemies in our minds and live peacefully, amidst our current challenges. This knowledge is vital as the world continues to change in ways that we cannot fully understand. We will be using the translation of the Bhagavad Gita by Eknath Easwaran; all other translations are also welcome

THE BHAGAVAD GITA
is translated as “The Song of the Blessed One, or Love-Song to the Divine.” Written in 18 short chapters in verse-form, it bestows gems of wisdom that have been used for thousands of years by all spiritual beliefs. Many spiritual leaders consider the Bhagavad Gita a handbook for living an honest, meaningful life. The story is of a brave and wise warrior, Arjuna, who was to lead his army into war against his own cousins, brothers, esteemed teachers and countrymen.
Before embarking upon this difficult obligation, he stopped and asked his chariot-man Krishna (God reincarnated,) for help and strength. The conversation symbolizes the war within each of us. The battlefield is the mind and the soldiers are the various thoughts and obstacles that go at each other, leaving us too exhausted and defeated.In the Gita, Krishna teaches Arjuna about YOGA as a way of living off the mat.
Mastery of the mind and our senses can lead to liberation of the soul; the ultimate goal and meaning of life.
This retreat will focus on the spiritual lessons and will use asana (yoga postures) as one of the tools.
Due to the inner focus, Participating Yogis are encouraged to have a minimum of one year of steady
asana experience to ensure their safety, or be approved by the Earth Yoga faculty.
