The Bodhicharyavatara (The way of a Bodhisattva) is one of the most treasured text within the Tibetan tradition. The text was written by the eight-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.

She became a nun in Nepal the following year, and received full (bhikshuni) ordination in 1988. At the request of her teachers, she began teaching in 1980, and since then has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in various countries around the world, occasionally taking time off for personal retreats.

Awakening a Kind Heart

In this course we will learn about and meditate on “the four immeasurable thoughts”—loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. These four mental states are essential qualities to be developed on the Buddhist path.

Meeting Buddha, Introduction to Tibetan Buddhist Paintings, 16-18 March 2018

Weekend course with Marian van der Horst, 16 – 18 mars 2018.
Meeting Buddha – introduction to Tibetan Buddhist paintings, thankas.

”It is very prosperous and inspiring to draw at least one Buddha-head in one’s life-time to make the connection”. This was said by Marian’s main teacher in thangka- drawing and painting, Gega Lama, whom she studied 8 years with. It made Marian’s life very precious and Gega Lama gave her the permission to teach thanka painting herself.
Drawing is considered to be very necessary, one has to make finally the grids oneself, on top of that structure, according to special measures of the Buddha-figure drawn.  One starts always with a Buddha-head and slowly the body, the clothes and the lotus.

In this introductory week-end one can only get an idea, a feeling mostly of happiness and quietness, because one makes a deep connection with the Buddha image one is drawing.

The iconography in Tibetan Buddhism is very extensive and captivating. Buddha-figures, but also Bodhisattvas and Protectors are divided into a system of 12 categories. We will during this weekend talk about the symbolism of postures and colours of Tibetan Buddhist iconography and we will make some exercises to experience the beauty of special technic in the Karma-gar-dri painting style.

You are very welcome to join. This course is basic and introductory and does not require former experience in drawing and painting. It is therefore suitable for anyone interested in Buddhist drawing and painting. There will be possibility to ask questions and to practice drawing of a Buddha image.

Friday, 16 March 18.30 – 21.00
Saturday, 17 March 10.00 – 17.00
Sunday, 18 March 10.00 – 17.00

Tibetanska läkaren Bhuti Losang sön 18 februari 2018 (OBS! Nytt datum!)

Tibetansk medicin har sin grund i buddhismen och sinnets balans anses vara en förutsättning för god hälsa. Det finns en helhetssyn på vad som behövs för att hålla sig frisk och läkarna ser helst att patienterna kommer innan obalanser pågått så länge att de blir svåra att bota.

Bhuti Losang är en kvinnlig tibetansk läkare som bor i Köpenhamn och har besökt oss i många år. Bhuti ger ofta både kostråd och ordinerar tibetanska örtmediciner till sina patienter. Genom åren har hon fått god inblick i vilka speciella problem som drabbar oss med västerländsk livsstil

En konsultation kostar 600 kr och medicin för en månad 150 kr (ibland kan man behöva fler mediciner). Bhuti kommer hit lördag 3 februari, om intresset är stort stannar hon även söndag 4 februari. Du bokar tid genom att mejla
