23 Dec Where The Rubber Meets the Road – GEN X Buddhist Teachers Gathering 2019
79640 Quincy-Mayger Road
Clatskanie, OR 97016
Gen X Dharma Teachers Conference is one of the first ongoing gatherings of dharma teachers with the purpose of fostering communication and collaboration across different traditions of Buddhism. Teachers from around the globe have the opportunity to meet other teachers, deepen relationships, discuss the particular concerns of teachers of our generation, and address issues that the international Dharma community of the future faces today.
Given the divisive social-political conditions in many parts of globe and the recent scandals in our own Buddhist circles, the 2019 planning committee felt that ethics would be an apropos topic at the next conference. With the title of “Where the Rubber Meets the Road”, we aim to both reiterate how ethics is a foundation of all our lineages’ practice and to provide a platform for engagement of how ethics can be relevant and supportive to ourselves as teachers and as sanghas in contemporary times.
