The Path of Karma Yoga: Stillness in Action

  • May 29 – 31, 2020
  • Oct 30 – Nov 1, 2020

with Trimurti Motyka

How do you experience your job? Your daily work responsibilities? What keeps you from being always relaxed, even-minded, and cheerful?

Is it the job? Or is it your thoughts and attitudes about the job?

During this potentially life-changing weekend, you will:

  • Examine your repetitive thoughts about yourself and your work
  • Discover you have the power to change those thoughts
  • Gain many simple tips and changes you can use right away to make dramatic shifts in your daily experience

The guided exercises in a focused and uplifted atmosphere can help you open inner doorways to getting a fresh start on your life. Perhaps it’s time to change jobs, but perhaps – instead – it’s time to change yourself!

This course will be partly introspection, discussion, and instruction, and partly experiential – trying the new attitudes and activities out in a simple work situation.

During this special weekend, you’ll examine basic attitudes you may have that keep you from being relaxed and happy: “I have to get this done now so I can move on to something else.” “I don’t want to be doing this.” “This is boring…or too stressful…or – fill in the blank.”

As the expression goes: “Wherever you go, there you are.” Most of us have no idea how our attitudes and our mental dialogue affect our work experience.

Nayaswami Trimurti, your weekend guide, has been directing The Expanding Light’s Karma Yoga program for about 20 years. He himself is a beautiful example of Stillness in Action. Meeting him and sharing an evening in his home with his wife and him will add to the richness and joy of your experience.
