Who doesn’t love a good adventure? Banished princes, kidnapped princesses, evil demons, flying monkeys, epic battles between good and evil? But what makes the Ramayana one of the greatest epics of all time (and the original Indian poem) is the timeless life lessons and blessings this soaring story bestows on its listeners.
More than any other, the characters and quandaries of the Ramayana are imprinted on the hearts of Indians and lovers of yoga the world over. The astonishing tale of Prince Rama, an avatar of the great god Vishnu, and the retinue of family, friends, and enemies woven into his great saga have inspired people to live deeper, more fulfilling lives for millennia. In this eight week deep dive into this fabulous legend, hidden meaning will be distilled from the unforgettable episodes of its storied characters: Rama, Sita, Ravana, Lakshman, Agastya and of course the great Hanuman.
"Durgama kaaja jagata ke jete Sugama anugraha tumhare tete Every difficult task in this world Becomes easy by your grace." Hanuman Chalisa verse 20
Mark Hanuman leads this course about Rama’s exciting journey around India as he searches for his stolen wife Sita. His focus will be on revealing its symbolic, soteriological truths of the myth: how Rama, Sita and Hanuman represent the ideal way for us to live and act in this world, as fathers, daughters, brothers, friends, wives, students, leaders and disciples. In his uniquely theatrical style, Mark’s love of classic storytelling is matched only by his passion for the difficult, complex but life altering maxims this tale sets before us.
The central theme to most Indian stories and philosophies is the paradox between balancing the pragmatic needs of an embodied, earthly existence and the esoteric desire for liberation from said existence. This and much more will be explored and developed in this fun, enlightening course that will stay in your heart forever (just like Rama and Sita forever enshrined in the heart of Hanuman).
Mark Hanuman Geraghty was certified in Sivananda Yoga in 2010 at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in the Bahamas, where he has spent much time studying and teaching yoga over the last 10 years and where he received his spiritual name Hanuman. He is currently teaching yoga in Mexico, after having his own successful yoga studio in Querétaro for 8 years. He now lives on the beach but continues to give retreats, kirtans, satsangs, masterclasses, workshops, and teacher training all over Mexico as well as in other countries. Reflecting upon his experiences, he believes that the true power of yoga extends far beyond just the physical benefits; it has the power to transform every practitioner’s energy, mind, and, ultimately, their reality. With love, discipline, and faith, Everything is Possible. 8 sessions Dates: September: 2,9,16,23,30 October: 7, 14, 21
