The Path of Love and Selfless Service: Vital Teachings from The Bhagavad Gita, Sufism, and The Gospels
Facilitated by Paul W. Jacob (Jake) www.nomadicdevotion.com
Wednesday September 21 — $50 (Lunch included)
The Bhagavad Gita or “Song of God” is a beloved Hindu spiritual book that offers many deep teachings on work, detachment, selfless service, loving devotion, and transcending our lower or delusional state of separation from the Unified Presence of God. Lessons from various Sufi mystics and the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth in The Gospels help to round out this day-long retreat that will assist attendees in locating their egotistical behaviors and attachments while also challenging them to become a more selfless person who works not for money, insurance, comfort, or notoriety but simply for The Beloved.
