In this workshop we will be discussing and learning about Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is defined in the Bhagavad Gita as the yoga of Action. Arjuna, one of the heroes of the Mahabharata and the hero of the Gita represents a man of Action, a kshatriya (Warrior). Learn about chapter 3 of the Gita on Karma Yoga and how these spiritual teachings inspired Ram Dass.
Through experiential, didactic and socratic means we will be studying Karma Yoga as a path of grihasta (house holder) spirituality. We will discuss and share the wisdom of our thoughtful and kind community members on what we can do to make the world a better place, and how these efforts contribute to our own happiness. We will also conclude with some singing and chanting.
Ram Dass has spent a lifetime making the deep wisdom of Eastern Spirituality accessible to those in the west, and this workshop focuses on specific teachings and techniques Ram Dass has learned with regards to understanding happiness. From specific meditation techniques, kirtan singing and studying scriptural works, Ram Dass has explored the depths of Eastern thought from Buddhism to Hinduism to bring back these teachings.
This is a free 2.5 hour workshop as part of a series to be held every fourth Sunday evening (once a month). This workshop will be led by Miko Matsumura RYT-200, Ram Dass Ambassador for SF and the South Bay and recent attendee of the Ram Dass week long retreat on Maui.Sign Up Online
