Led by Kamalashila + team
Introduction from Kamalashila:
We want to start a regular gathering of those Order members who are currently mostly specialising in meditation teaching at a level of ‘regulars’ and above. We want to draw the senior teachers with their deep experience and longstanding personal connections, and all currently practising teachers.
This 'teachers circle' will not be a training event but simply a gathering, like any Order meeting, with no particular agenda*. There will be a programme over a weekend, but the emphasis will be on spending time with one another. There would be a meeting 2-3 times a year and I'd expect that over time many creative ideas and perspectives will emerge.
I am expecting to MC the first event, maybe others too, depending - and plan to be at all of them.
*there is no connection with the 'sikkha project' or any training programme.
PS The original idea was a suggestion to Kamalashila from Nagabodhi, who said he was astonished that the meditation teachers do not meet, despite the long connections of friendship they share. So we hope that Adhisthana will host many such gatherings, and perhaps eventually some of the larger centres too.
