Stephen Batchelor

Stephen Batchelor began his Buddhist studies in 1972 in India, received full ordination as a bhikkhu in 1979, and disrobed in 1985, following three years of training in Korean Seon. The author of Buddhism Without Beliefs, he has become the face of the movement to find a secular, modern approach to the dharma; Bodhi College, which he cofounded in 2015, continues that project. He is married to dharma teacher and author Martine Batchelor, whom he met in Korea, where she trained as a Seon nun for ten years.
