divineDo you wonder how, specifically, the idea that we are each, in essence, divine can inform our day-to-day lives? In this workshop we will explore the question of how we can genuinely be (that is, act and think) divine in the ‘real world’, where we are not always amidst like-minded souls and where so many suffer. We shall use the great spiritual and philosophical classic, the Bhagavad G?t? as our launching pad. Some two thousand years old, this wonderful text tells a universally relevant story of how to live ethically well in the ‘battlefields’ of everyday life. This reading will be supplemented by works from other spiritual traditions.
