Mantra Chant Intensive with Ian Boccio
Jun 12, 2020 - Jun 14, 2020
 

Join Ian for this foundational intensive intended to familiarize students with the basic theory and practice of mantra as a personal, spiritual path.

The following is a general outline of the topics which will be covered in each session of the Level 1 Mantra Chant Intensive:

Session 1.

Basic definitions of mantra and sacred language. An introduction to Sanskrit pronunciation. Mantras for Gaeśa and Sarasvatī.

Session 2.

Mantras for Lakmī, Durgā, Śiva and Viu. Explanation of mālās (counting beads) and how they are used. Preparatory practices and an explanation of daily sādhana. Understanding deity vibrations and the nature of conscious energy. How to interact with deities on a personal level. The role of mythology and storytelling in spiritual practice.

Lectures on the underlying theory behind mantra, using information gained from texts of the yoga tradition as well as practical experience. Major topics include the nature of śakti (divine energy), prāna (life force) and kundalinī(evolutionary energy), a detailed examination of the cakra system and the relationship between that system and the Sanskrit language. Discussion and practice with bīja mantras (seed sounds) that encapsulate the basic vibrations of reality.

Understanding the Bhagavad Gita (RYT300)
Jun 20, 2020 - Jun 21, 2020
 
The Bhagavad Gita appears in the 6th Book of the Hindu Epic Mahabharata. Written somewhere between the 5th and 2nd centuries B.C., the Gita has long been considered one of the most influential texts in the World. In a conversation between Prince Arjuna and his charioteer Krishna, universal themes such as renunciation vs. action, proof vs. faith, and seen vs. unseen are explored in depth along with the concepts of Karma, Dharma, Bhakti and Yoga.
 
The text has had international influence, informing the writing of American authors like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman. Mahatma Ghandi turned to the Gita for consolation during his campaign for Indian Independence, and many other prominent politicians, philosophers, psychologists and leaders have lauded both its beauty and its message for centuries. For Yoga Practitioners world-wide, understanding the Gita has become an essential part of discovering the philosophical premise that underscores the practice.
 
Join Sheila, former Professor of Writing and Literature and Owner of Johns Creek Yoga and Duluth Yoga for this weekend introduction to the Bhagavad Gita. Explore the main themes of the text, learn about its historical context and background, and discover how its ideas can enrich your life.
