Yoga as a Science of Inner Transformation

A Talk by Ravi Ravindra

Friday, March 13; 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.

Instant Karma Yoga

61607  29 Palms Hwy #F

Joshua Tree, 92252

Located behind JTAG Gallery in the corner

 

One single lesson that can be gleaned from all the scriptures and sacred texts is: unless searchers undergo radical transformation of their whole being, they cannot come to the Truth or the Real or God.  The process of transformation leads not to freedom for myself but rather to freedom from my conditioned self.  Yoga is a science par excellence of transformation.  As Patañjali says in the Yoga Sutras, the practice of Yoga aims at the transformational knowledge that leads to samadhi which he defines as a state when the separate self is not.

 

Yoga in the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita

A Workshop with Ravi Ravindra

Meditation – Lecture -Tea

Saturday, March 14, 2020; 11:00a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Instant Karma Yoga

Joshua Tree, 92252

Located behind JTAG Gallery in the corner

 

The transformational teaching of Yoga will be explored based on the two classical texts of Yoga of which Ravi has made fresh translations with his commentary.  As we will discuss, a searcher soon becomes interested in the adventurous journey of self-transformation rather than the destination, which always remains a mystery.

About the Organizer

GABRIELLA NAGY has been practicing yoga and mindfulness since high school. She completed her first teacher training with Kira Sloane in 2005 and is grateful for all her teachers and the teachings that have been so generously shared with her since then. She believes that yoga ultimately is the science of inner transformation and the first step that is needed to purify our heart, so we can see clearly. Her unique teaching style is based on Self-Knowledge, Self-Acceptance and Self Love. Gabriella’s gentle and loving personality creates a safe environment where students can become aware of the profound effect synchronizing movement with breath has on the mind and body. Her classes offer students the opportunity to integrate spirit into their lives and cultivate balance and strength. She believes peace and quietness of the heart and the mind is essential in the healing process of our ever-present inner child and when we learn how to quiet the mind and still our heart we gain access to our True Self. She is teaching at Instant Karma Yoga in Joshua Tree.
