The Bhagavad Gita , known as the song of the Self, is a promise from the Knower of the Truth to those who are seeking the Truth of their own Self. The Gita presents a dialogue between the questioning mind in the form of Arjun, and the answered state represented by Sage Krishna.
Krishna speaks to Arjun. “ I know you are my dearest friend, but you have accepted your mind’s decision, that your body is your I. Whereas I am telling you, you are the Source Existence.”

Here’s what our students from the last series just wrote to us:
I just completed the Gita course, and it was a wonderful experience. There were several interesting things I learned about the course but the one thing that really made a big impression was the 5 elements (air, water, fire, space, earth). I was very excited to learn that there is a connection between the elements in the Eastern world. I recently took a mindfulness course that also included information on the elements and how to use them to help people reduce trauma, stress, and anxiety. For example, the air we breathe (using deep breathing to relax the body and reduce stress), Fire the food we digest or/and body temperature, and the supreme space that all of this comes out of. The Gita taught me the story about the relationship between Arjun and Krishna and, the war that takes place within man. It is a fascinating story. I do not want to give away the plot, you will learn all about it when you take the class!

They cover some of the most valuable passages, including chapter 2, verse 45, on transcending the three gunas and the ego to remember one’s true identity as the real Self – pure consciousness in eternal existence; verses 19-25 in chapter 2 on the qualities of the Self; which of the various yog (yoga) paths discussed are the most important; and chapter 15’s tree of life, or creation, explaining how all manifested forms are rooted in the source of the one Supreme Existence.
Mukta has spent many years studying and living the precepts taught in the Gita. Her understanding and familiarity with the book come through in her teaching, as does her natural joy and humor. The sessions include some meditation guidance and practice. Participants in her classes are invited to ask any questions they have and to share from their own perspectives. They also benefit from the wisdom of Dr. Glen Kezwer (Bhakti Nath) author of the training course The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita. From my own experience, I recommend Mukta’s classes for those who wish a deeper understanding of the Bhagavad Gita. Helpful recordings of the classes are shared for further review and assimilation.
I wish to take a few moments to share the experiences that I’ve had with Mukta (Pip Jarden). I first became aware of her when I was certifying as an instructor in Transformational Meditation in 2016, then recently started attending her regular online sessions via ZOOM. It’s often said, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Well, I’ve found my spiritual teacher. Mukta’s compassion of self and desire to see others grow in their walk of pure, free bliss is evident from your first meeting. Mukta’s deep level of understanding and conveyance is immediately noticeable when your curiosity sparks and you seek knowledge. Her ability to explain and then help you apply what you learn is heartwarming. I highly recommend that you join us in one of her online sessions. Come with an open mind and heart and you’ll move further along your path on this journey. You won’t regret it.

Taking a course with Mukta was pure joy. Because of her authentic combination of knowledge, humor, and humility it makes it fun interesting and proof in my case that you can teach an old dog new tricks..
I thank her so much for accepting me in her class to learn from someone who lives what she teaches. I look forward to her next class.
