Moral philosophy is the very foundation of the eight limbs of yoga. Join us for a weekend of practice and reflection on one of the greatest yoga texts of all time: महभरतम् Mahābhāratam (Great India) and it's famous section: भगवद् गत Bhagavad Gītā (Song of the Divine). This epic story of two families has been a source of inspiration and wisdom for nearly two millennia. In addition to an overview of the Gītās 18 chapters and it's greatest quotes, we will explore the current debate on the new science of morality:http://www.edge.org/events/the-new-science-of-morality
Learn about the difference between liberal and conservative moral channels, automatic vs. manual morality, the moral landscape, willpower and the false dichotomy between emotion and reason so that you can better communicate to your audience. Learn several inspirational stories that you can share in your classes to help make the world a better place.
