Bhagavad Gita: Navigating Difficult Times
with Chase Bossart – Fri. Dec. 13, 6:30-9pm
The Bhagavad Gita is the story of a hero facing an agonizingly difficult decision and the amazing guidance that helps him decide what to do. In the course of itʼs teaching, this ancient text not only provides a blue print for finding lasting peace and joy (even in difficult situations) but also gives directions for finding, connecting with & being your most essential you. We will present an overview of the text and its message with an emphasis on how these ideas apply to our lives today. No prior experience is necessary. The evening will include lecture, discussion and two short meditation practices (with asana & pranayama). All levels are welcome. $45. Preregister at AYC or by email.
Patañjali’s Yogasutras: Foundations
with Chase Bossart – Sat. Dec. 14, 6-8:30pm
By all accounts, yoga has the capacity to transform not only how we move and breath but also how we feel and behave. In turn, according to the Yogasutras of Patañjali, yoga can also transform how other people feel and respond to us. The key to facilitating this change is the development of a set of attitudes within ourselves. Join us for an exploration of these attitudes and how they form a foundation of experience that fosters transformation. The evening will include lecture, discussion and two short meditation practices (asana and pranayama.) The presentation is both accessible to beginners and instructive for experienced practitioners. $45. Preregister at AYC or by email.
