Live Life With Love

Led by: Bill Mahony

From July 25, 2010 at 1:00 pm until July 24, 2010 at 9:00 pm at Dumbo

Two Texts on Yoga and the Cultivation of Spiritual LoveIn Celebration of Gurupurnima Session I: The Bhagavad Gita 1:00-4:00 pm In this, one of the most important of yogic texts, Lord Krishna leads his beloved friend Arjuna to his heart so that Arjuna can live a life of responsible service to the world in the embrace of divine love. In this session we will hear teachings from this Song of the Lord that can give us guidance in refining our own harmonious, balanced, powerful yoga of divine love in the context of the challenges and opportunities of life.Since yogic study is supported by a refreshed body and mind, Tara Glazier will lead a short session of asana practice between Bill’s lectures on the Gita. The session will conclude with a period of meditation. Session II: The Narada Bhakti Sutra6:00-9:00 pmIn this session we will turn to a 10th century text from the devotional tradition of yoga that describes various levels spiritual love, bhakti. Teachings from this sutra can help us recognize the nature of the highest levels of love and to discern the power of divine love in our hearts. They also give us yogic ways to strengthen and refine our own love - for others, for the soul, for life, for divinity - in response to that divine love. Since one of the ways this text notes that we can cultivate and express spiritual love is through joyful song, this session will include a period of kirtan led by skilled musicians. It will end with a period of meditation. **If you would like to sign up for only one of the sessions, please email kt@abhayayoga.com**
