– 2 Day Residential Retreat

Bhagavad Gita for Everyday Living

What we call “daily life” is a continually raging battle in the Kurukshetra of one’s heart. Strong preferences, prejudices, and priorities clash, tearing asunder one’s sanity and tranquility, and plunging one within the habitual sinkhole of despondency. Yet, somehow one soldiers on, hoping that this state of continual conflict is an aberration, even though it presents itself as the norm. Imprisoned by the chains of wrong notions and priorities, one clings tightly to a dangerous vortex of action and reaction.

Fortunately, in the recognition that one needs help, half the battle is already won. The rest is taken care of by the mesmerising melodies of Lord Krishna’s flute in the form of the verses of the Bhagavad Gita. The wounded heart is repaired, setting one free to soar the skies of goals and ambitions unfettered by the shackles of despondency and despair.

Come and explore these possibilities with us in the mini-retreat on the Bhagavad Gita for Everyday Living. Give yourself a weekend of relaxation and expansion. You have nothing to lose, except self-ignorance.
