SPEAKER: Fr Gilbert Carlo SVD
Fr Gilbert Carlo SVD has been conducting Christian Yoga since 1989 in India, Australia, USA, UK, and other countries promoting contemplation and good health of body, mind and soul. He will speak on inculturation, adaptation and the role of interfaith dialogue in bringing peace amongst religions in the fusion of Yoga and Christian mediation on Jesus Christ.
Should Christians practice yoga? Is there such a thing as Christ Centered Yoga? Is there something wrong with rebranding yoga, a practice and philosophy born out of and associated with Buddhism and Hinduism, as Christian? At first glance, it would seem that yoga, an ancient spiritual and physical discipline originating in India, and Christianity, an Abrahamic religion that began in modern-day Israel during the first century AD, have little in common.
