This workshop combines mindfulness practices from a variety of spiritual traditions with the wisdom of world philosophies, emergent neuroscience, and the creative arts of music, poetry, painting, and film. The result is a deep, yet straightforward and sustainable practice easily incorporated into daily life. The workshop is designed for those who are new to mindfulness as well as those who have already begun mindfulness practice.
The Bhagavad-Gita is the most popular and widely studied of the Hindu scriptures. Plus, it has become a classic of world literature, inspiring such diverse writers and artists as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Walt Whitman, T.S. Eliot, Phillip Glass, Anita Desai, and Chitra Divakaruni. Most recently, it has become an invaluable resource for developing cross-cultural principles of management, leadership, and positive psychology.
