From Revelation to Insight gathered me in right from the beginning, renewing and re-inspiring my study of the ageless wisdom teachings of the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita. For a new student this is a rich course ideal for learning the essence of these texts. For the practiced student/teacher, diving into deeper study, you are reignited and enriched with the depth of these teachings. You gain clear confidence to bring the key principles of them into your own class offerings. Chétana’s masterful guidance throughout the course makes this online format of study supportive, clear and easy to follow. Her depth of knowledge shines during the personable online lectures and the practices of mantra, meditation and ritual.

I had a great experience with this course. I especially liked that after listening to Chétana talk on a video you could then read the lecture notes, so anything you didn’t grasp from listening was written. It’s great also that you can watch the video as many times as you like. My favourite part of the course was the section on the Bhagavad Gita. Chétana’s love knowledge of this text shone through and helped me to grasp it further. I personally use ritual often and so loved the opportunity to practice an ancestral ceremony with Chétana, and I actually repeated it a few times while I was completing the course. It’s a beautiful practice. I’m grateful to Chétana for sharing her years of studying the sacred texts with us. I defiantly feel now that I understand better the history of yoga, how it developed and changed and how to integrate it better into my life. It leaves me with new inspiration. Thank you, Chétana.
