Saturday 24th February 2018

 MEDITATIONS from the BHAGAVAD GITA

 

with Rolf Sovik PsyD,

President of the Himalayan Institute USA, Honesdale, PA.

   

4-day retreat at Domus Mariae Convent, Chigwell, Essex (UK).

      The Bhagavad Gita combines four messages each charting, with unequalled variety and human richness, a pathway from relentless activity to peace of mind & enlightenment.    Clearly, practically, and framed with universal appeal, the Gita’s dialogue opens the way to spiritual self-discovery, with meditation as an essential part of its vision of spirituality.     Join Dr. Sovik and :

  • Practice a deeply satisfying and universal method of meditation.
  • Use silence and stillness to enhance your meditation experience.
  • Explore key roles of Karma-, Bhakti-, Jnana- and Raja-yoga in daily life.

  • Fully grasp the “Wheel of Karma” as an experience shared by all humans.
