Pure Joy Studio and Vedanta Circle would like to personally invite you to participate in a one-day workshop on the Bhagavad Gita.
Last year we hosted a Gita workshop and reviewed Chapter 1 through to Chapter 3. This workshop is free-standing and does not require that you attended the first workshop. A brief summary of the first three chapters will be included in the package of session notes for participants.
Content: We will review Chapter 4 through to Chapter 9 of the Bhagavad Gita.
Times: This workshop will start at 10 a.m. There will be two 45-minute sessions with a15 minutebreak in between. Starting at noon, we will have a 45-minute lunch break with nutritious vegetarian food. Not too spicy. Bottled water and hot tea will be provided. Then we will hold two-afternoon sessions of 45-minutes each with a 15-minute break in the middle.
This workshop will end with Q&A time.
Cost: The cost is $20 for the four-session workshop. This includes session notes and a healthy vegetarian lunch. Payment by check, credit card or cash are equally acceptable.
Those who are hard-pressed for time can attend either the morning session or the afternoon session for a cost of $10. This does not include lunch, but two session notes are included.
Contact/Registration: Please email
Jiten Ruparel at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joy Lawrence at email@example.com so that arrangements can be made for you. An early RSVP will be appreciated, especially if you will be joining us for lunch.
