Introducing the Committee Supporting Visting Teachers
We are pleased to announce the creation of the Visiting Teachers Committee (VTC) which will help host and support visiting teacher programs at the Shambhala Center. Visiting teachers include Rinpoches, Acharyas, and other visiting Shambhala and non-Shambhala teachers. As the center expands, the VTC will provide support for finding coordinators, staff, and assisting visiting teachers.
Why would you be interested in this news? The VTC are one of your key resources for learning how to engage with a visiting teacher program. Several Rinpoches and Acharyas will be visiting Boston in the next year, and we therefore have the rare opportunity to have personal contact with these dharma teachers and experience their joyful, inspiring and rich presence. This contact comes through a combination of service and practice. We will be having multiple service trainings this fall which you are invited to attend, and you can contact any member of the VTC to find out more about how you can get involved with working with a teacher.
The new VTC members are Martina Bouey, Bryan Mendiola, and Cindy Caros. Welcome!
Contact us at [email protected] if you interested in getting more involved!
“It is said that if our intention is to help others–even if we are unable to follow it through–we will never have any regret. Regret is a result of trying to make “me” happy.”
