Complimentary: Dharma Talk on the Yoga Sutras
We are so honored to introduce a COMPLIMENTARY Dharma talk on the Yoga Sutras by one of The 10 influential teachers who have shaped yoga in America, senior yogi GABRIEL HALPERN. ♥
Sacred Texts and Scriptural Discussion. Typically when the word yoga is used it refers to the path of meditation, particularly as outlined in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. These aphorisms on Yoga consolidate the continuity and history of yoga as practiced through the Vedas, the Upanishads, and culminating in the Bhagavad-Gita or The Song Celestial.Gabriel’s dharma talk and power point presentation will elucidate the basics tenets of the Yoga Sutras, especially as it pertains to practice.Traditional commentaries illuminate the fine points of why only with practice does the realization of these truths reveal themselves.
A lively Q & A will follow the talk.
Gabriel Halpern holds a BA in Philosophy, an MA in Health Psychology, and was trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institutes in San Francisco and Pune, India. Gabriel has practiced since 1970 and gives workshops nationally. He founded and directed the Yoga Circle in Chicago, IL from 1985 until 2018. For over twenty years he was a core performance faculty member at De Paul University’s Theater Department. In 2011, he was awarded the Elder/Mentor of the Year by the Mankind Project. Owing to the direct influence of BKS Iyengar and 50 years of continuous practice and study, Gabriel’s teaching is all that is yoga: zeal in practice, science, art form, lifestyle, and mystical mentoring.
