Stepping Onto the Path of the Bodhisattva

July 14 – 16, 2022

This free seminar offered by our friends at Embodied Philosophy will offer an introduction to Shantideva, the great 8th-century Indian philosopher, Buddhist monk, poet, and scholar, and his classic work, A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. This seminar will offer a sampling of Isa Gucciardi’s highly experiential teaching style as she helps students better understand their relationship to equanimity, patience, and effort through meditation and reflection.

In this seminar, students will learn:
• How important Shantideva’s point of view is to the development of Mahayana Buddhism.
• How ‘A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life’ can become a navigational aid in spiritual development.
• How equanimity is fundamental to the development of all the Paramitas.

This talk will be released on-demand on July 14. When you register you will receive a 48hr-active link to watch the recording at your convenience through July 16.
