You can join if you didn’t participate in the first two semesters.

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 this course, we learn the tools and meditations to transform our lives.

This two-year course with Stephan Pende on Shantideva’s Bodhicharyavatara consists of four semesters with each having two full Saturdays of teaching and 6 Online Video Conferences on Sunday evenings. It’s possible to attend only the live teachings in Copenhagen.

It is not necessary to sign up for the whole course. The course is suitable for everyone, independent of the background. The emphasis will be on how to bring the wisdom and experiences of this text into our daily life and relationships.

The Saturdays are happening in Copenhagen but will be live-streamed. There will be recordings of the Saturdays and the online meetings available. You will be invited to a closed Facebook group, where you can discuss and ask questions.
