Bhakti, love and devotion to the Divine, is experiential and cannot be intellectualized or even defined. From the Upanishads to the Bhagavad Gita, Bhakti yoga has been taught as an integral practice of liberation and transformation, influencing multiple social change movements in a myriad of ways.
In this live, free mini-workshop with Anjali Rao, we’ll explore:
- Bhakti Yoga as taught by Sri Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita
- Historical significance in important social change movements
- Decolonization and Bhakti
- Inspiration for integrating Bhakti in your personal practice honoring diverse cultural and religious lineages
- and more!
Anjali will also share about her upcoming course, Yoga & Activism: A Blueprint for Collective Transformation, and she’ll offer a giveaway for one FREE spot in her Yoga & Activism course, which begins April 8th!
