Teachers Council

The Teachers Council is a group of Insight Dialogue teachers who ensure the integrity of the teachings and provide spiritual guidance to the Insight Dialogue community.

Our mission is to deepen, transmit and live a whole life Dhamma with an emphasis on relational practices and perspectives. We mentor and support the teachers and the teaching community, maintain ethical and Dhamma standards, uphold standards for offering Insight Dialogue and collaborate in decision making with the Guiding Sangha. We serve communities of practice by nourishing them with guidance and care. The Teachers Council meets in-person several times a year and via video-conference.
