Surrender and Celebrate! An Introduction to the Bhagavad Gita - 3 Week Class

“The story of the Gita is our own soul’s journey. It is the journey we make every day, moment by moment,
as we seek to live in harmony with the divine influence. To live the spiritual life, we must resist the inner forces of desire and
delusion that lead the soul into bondage and surrender to the direction of the indwelling divine nature.”
~ Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian



6:30-8:30 pm ~ 3 Wednesdays, August 28, September 4, 11, 2019
In this prelude to our year-long Gita study, we explored the main themes and symbolic meanings of the Bhagavad Gita.   If you were unable to attend these classes, you are still welcome to participate in the Individual Daily Meditation and Metaphysical Scripture Study and the Living in Freedom Monthly Contemplative Study Group.

“Real peace in our lives cannot be created; it has no cause. It is a spiritual quality that is innate to the soul. It is revealed when our lives are in balance and we act with integrity.”

Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian, Spiritual Director, Center for Spiritual Enlightenment

To help us live from divine wisdom within, the study of our true Self and sacred scripture is one of the foundational practices in Kriya Yoga. In this tradition, we do not study sacred scripture to find answers within the pages of the text. Instead, we study scripture to reveal the divine wisdom that already indwells each of us, and that is waiting to be heard by us now. 
Instructor: Paula Whang-Ramos
