American Veda with Phil Goldberg
India's gurus and yoga masters have been transforming American lives for two centuries. In this workshop, Philip Goldberg, author of the celebrated book American Veda, will bring these powerful teachers to life with multimedia presentations, lively discussion, and deep experiential practices.
Through the magic of multimedia, we will bask in the inspiring presence of revered teachers like Yogananda, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Satchidananda, Muktananda, and others who have so profoundly impacted our culture, along with gifted Westerners—Ram Dass, Allen Ginsberg, the Beatles, and others—who transmitted India's wisdom teachings in unique and masterful ways. We will take away an expanded vision of our sublime yoga legacy and a repertoire of new practices to accelerate our progress to higher realization.
