The Journey of Devotion: The Ramayana

w/ Rachel
March 31st 1-4pm
June 2nd 3:30-5:30pm
Cost: $35

The Ramayana is an ancient & beautiful poem from the Mahabharata, one of the great Sanskrit epics. In this tale, Lord Ram must find his beloved Sita, who has been abducted by the demon king Ravana. Along with the help of his devotee Hanuman, Ram moves through story after story of triumph, failure & struggle in the journey of unifying again with his love. This story holds within it 24,000 verses and dozens of individual tales; all delineating, at their heart, the relationship between the individual & the divine.

In this book & study group, we will not only dive into the text together; but we will have meditation & contemplation prompts throughout to further discover the deep meaning of the Ramayana. Our first session will be to begin the text and we will go over the historic context and importance of it. Between our first and last session, we will stay in contact via a private Slack channel; where we can share and discuss as we move through the text. The channel will also have meditation and contemplation prompts separated per chapter; so that each individual can read the text at their own pace. Our last session will be to close, finishing the text together and sharing what the experience has been for us.
