2011 Buddhist Teachers Council

 Registration is closed for this event

By Invitation

As Buddhism becomes established in the West, one of the new developments is a rich cross-fertilization among the great traditions. In this spirit, Buddhist teachers in the West have been meeting and supporting one another in many forms.  The Garrison 2011 meeting continues the past series of collaborative teacher meetings held in the U.S., Dharamsala, and in Europe. This 2011 multi-tradition meeting will be 3 days of a Maha Teacher Council of 230 Buddhist teachers from centers across the West. Some key themes will include:

THE MINDFUL SOCIETY - a visionary consideration of the promise and the pitfalls as the Dharma spreads more widely into medicine, science, healing, education, the arts and all aspects of Western culture.

PRESERVATION OF DEPTH AND ADAPTING SKILLFUL MEANS TO A NEW WORLD – how to preserve and adapt the Dharma in new conditions without losing depth.

FROM ELDERS TO THE NEXT GENERATION – 50 teachers under age 45 will join the council to consider together how the current teachers can best support and empower the next generations.
