This event is for recognized Dharma teachers in a tradition of Buddhadharma which offers refuge in the Three Jewels, born between 1960 and 1980, who are actively teaching and guiding students individually and as a group in North America and Europe. It is intended to support and connect teachers for whom Dharma teaching is a (or the) significant life activity, whether through teaching retreats, guiding a Buddhist temple, or other format. While there are many others who are doing important and good work as board members of dharma centers, executive directors or administrators of sanghas, secular mindfulness teachers, MBSR instructors, etc., for this gathering we are aiming to invite those who are serving as Buddhist teachers as their primary role so we can share the joys and challenges of that role, build connections, and learn from each other.
