Find deeper peace in challenging times, discover meaning in uncertainty, and address anxiety by relying on kindness.
In this course, we will challenge ourselves to bring the wisdom of The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva into our own lives and relationships. This series will offer practical tools to awaken bodhichitta in daily life and meditations to deepen our experience of emptiness.
The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva, one of the most revered texts in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, was written by the tenth century Tibetan master Tokme Zongpo. Its inspiring verses convey the entire Mahayana path of compassion. It describes the practices and attitudes of the awakening rebel who wants to heal, grow up, and wake up for the benefit of all.
Relating to traditional Buddhist practices and texts authentically can be difficult for us in the West. The texts are incredibly powerful but come from a different cultural context, making it difficult to move beyond intellectual understanding and perfunctory repetition toward allowing them to touch our hearts and transform our lives as they are meant to.
The teachings are suitable for beginners and experienced students.
Former Buddhist monk and psychotherapist Stephan Pende will share from his experience of 30 years practicing in different Buddhist traditions.
