Here what students of the Nectar of the Gita are saying!

Master your life through the study of the Bhagavad Gītā

Like a mother who alleviates the suffering of her child, Bhagavad Gītā offers the remedy for the struggle of life. Prayed to as the divine mother, the Bhagavad Gītā nourishes its listeners with the nectar we crave ~ a clear explanation of the human condition, an inspired, but practical, means to unbreakable happiness in the midst of life.

The Gītā is unique because it delivers the most supreme teachings not on a serene isolated mountain top, but right in the center of the messy, conflict-ridden life of a householder.

When assimilated, the Gītā resolves inner pain, spiritual bypass, and the inner distaste for the realities of life. Students of the Gītā come to live life itself as a Yoga, in every moment. Its teachings of lay the foundation for deep understanding of the Self, the world, and the Divine.

While many Yoga students and teachers have some introductory or book-based exposure to the Bhagavad Gītā, few in the West have received the in-depth teachings that are needed to truly unpack, digest, and apply the wisdom. Many are left with feel-good affirmations and quotes that don’t create true transformation. To study this text deeply opens the door for the wisdom to truly alchemize the struggles and complexities of life into joy.

Gain access to these transformational teachings through an in-depth live, online program, offered over the next year and a half in three six-week courses.

Each six-week course is a journey in accordance with the three parts of the Gītā itself. As Krishna pours knowledge into Arjuna in the center of the battlefield, the knowledge is poured into you, nourishing as only true nectar can.

The Gītā guides every part of life — it is the only self-help teaching you’ll ever need.

“Om. Goddess Mother Bhagavadgītā! I repeatedly invoke you… who showers the nectar of oneness, and is the destroyer of suffering”~ The Gītā Dhyānam

Course 1: The Nectar of Action

July / August – recordings available now! (register for the full Gita program and get access to recordings)

Live Yoga now. Right in the midst of your life, as it is.

Life is made of action. In this way, action is a constant opportunity for maturation. A central teaching in the Bhagavad Gītā it that it is possible to alchemize every moment of one’s life into a process of spiritual growth. This is the heart of Karma Yoga, and the key to a deeply satisfying life.

Learn what it means to bring the teachings of Karma Yoga directly into your life, avoiding the pitfalls of using Yoga as a form of spiritual bypass. Over six weeks of svadhyāya, explore deeply all that Krishna shares with Arjuna about living as a yogi in the world.

Explore how these teachings apply directly to your own journey to discover the self-satisfied Self in the life you are leading now. 

The Nectar of Action is one part of a three-part online series on the Bhagavad Gītā. Purchase the Nectar of Action a la carte for $198 or buy the full program at a discount.

Frequently Asked Questions about The Nectar of Nidra

Are classes live or pre-recorded?
All classes are taught LIVE via video conferencing (Fridays at 3:00 p.m., Pacific Time, U.S.) and recorded. This means you can attend live and revisit the material or watch the recordings on your own schedule. Attending live is ideal, I love when people can attend live, but I know due to time zones, travel, work schedules it’s not always possible. If you plan to watch the recordings, set aside a dedicated time each week.

It is okay if you have to arrive late or leave early from the live classes.

What do I need to attend the live classes?
Joining live is simple. All classes are held on Zoom. You join with one click from a mobile device or a computer. You’ll need an internet connection to join live or watch/listen later, which is all up on the dedicated Nectar of Gita website.

After you register, you’ll receive a PDF with a link to the Zoom classroom. A few hours before each class you’ll receive a “Click to Join” email. You can also click to join from right inside the program site.

If you are watching the recorded sessions (for example, if you join the program after one of the live courses has ended), you will receive a link to access the recordings to watch at your own pace. 

When will the recordings be available?
Within 24 hours you’ll receive a link to the recording via email. You’ll access everything from the dedicated Nectar of the Gita program site.

How long is each class?
Each lesson is about 90 minutes of lecture followed by Q&A.

Is there a way to just listen to the audio?
If you’re trying to minimize screen time, just listen as an audio course. The video is there to make it a little more engaging for people who are more visual.

Will there be opportunities to ask questions?
Yes! The nature of the class is a 90-minute lecture followed by time for Q&A. There is also a way to type Qs into the Nectar of the Gita site after each lesson, and then I will respond to them on the page, or in subsequent live classes.
