Free Online Dharma Talk: Inoculation Against Nihilism with Gabriel Halpern
Yoga is an inoculation against nihilism. This is the real immunity against the nay-sayers.
The stress of the pandemic has kept our country in a state of psycho-physiological-emergency-preparedness. Yet potential is bursting forward; what's going to happen next? It is in the movement toward the ideal that life's meaning is attained. Now is the time to renew your commitment to the dharma which is always aiming upwards. Gabriel’s talk will cover going on the adventure, arousing the appropriate emotions for the journey, elevating the conversation, and how to integrate social change with your yoga practice.
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. At 72, he has finally turned into the ritual elder he has been seeking his whole life.
