The Transformation of Desire

Introduction into Tantra

Based on Lama Yeshe’s book” The Transformation of Desire” we will explore the foundations of Tibetan Buddhist Tantra.

This weekend will be an introduction into a series of weekends around the practice of Tantra. Between the weekends you will have the possibility to join Zoom meetings to practice together and deepen the material.

Even though tantra is considered by the various Tibetan Traditions to be the most profound and advanced of all Buddhist teachings, Lama Yeshe felt its central message to be simple and clear, and extremely relevant for our times. As he said on many occasions, the West has discovered so many powerful sources of energy in nature but remains unaware of the tremendous force contained within each of us.

The practice of tantra, which is designed to take advantage of this hidden inner resource and utilize it, offers us the opportunity to overcome our limitations and transform our lives into the meaningful, integrated whole that we desire.

Stephan Pende Wormland has studied and practiced meditation in multiple traditions for over 30 years. He was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years. During that time, he served as director of FPMT’s Nalanda Monastery and spent 5 years in group and solitary retreats. While Stephan’s main teacher is Lama Zopa Rinpoche, he has also received teachings from great Tibetan Masters of the four schools including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Sakya Trizin Rinpoche, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Kirti Thenshap Rinpoche, Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, and Choden Rinpoche. He has also practiced and studied with esteemed Western teachers like Peter Fenner, Alan Wallace, Rob Preece, Alex Berzin, Pema Chodron, Robert Thurman and Ken McLeod. Stephan has been the resident teacher for FPMT’s Center for Wisdom and Compassion in Copenhagen for many years and currently teaches meditation in Buddhist Centers around Europe.
