The Bodhicharyavatara (The way of a Bodhisattva) is one of the most treasured text within the Tibetan tradition. The text was written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. It is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps to cultivate courage, caring and joy – the keys to healing ourselves and our troubled world.

The path of the Bodhisattva is open to every one of us and during the course, we learn the tools and meditations to transform our lives.

Stephan Wormland is MA in clinical psychology and trained in Gestalt therapy. He has studied and practiced meditation in multible Buddhist traditions for over 30 years. Stephan was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years, spent five years in meditation retreats, and teaches meditation in Buddhist centers in Europe.
