Each year on the first Saturday of October, the Northwest Dharma Association sponsors a gathering of Buddhist teachers and monastics from around the region. The purpose is for teachers from all Buddhist traditions to get to know one another, to share their skills and experience, and to discuss areas of mutual interest.
Who Is InvitedThis is not an event for students or the public, but for Buddhist teachers as peers. The meeting is open to Buddhist monastics and to teachers from Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, or Alaska who have been authorized to teach and are actively teaching.
This Year’s LocationDai Bai Zan Cho Bo Zen Temple has generously offered its space for the meeting.

What Will Take PlaceFellowship, discussion, and sharing food. Lunch will be provided; please register so we can plan the food. You can register at http://northwestdharma.org/teachermeetingregform.html.
The format and topics of the day's discussions will be determined by the participants.
NWDA volunteers will be on hand to help facilitate as needed.
Possible themes for discussion include different teaching methods and styles; teacher training and authorization; financial issues faced by Buddhist teachers; developing urban and rural centers; and promoting interaction among different Buddhist groups.
These are certainly not the only areas for fruitful discussion; they are simply a starting point. We’d like to hear from you what you’d like to see on the agenda (register at http://northwestdharma.org/teachermeetingregform.html).
The Role of the Northwest Dharma AssociationBringing Buddhist teachers together from around the region is one way to fulfill the mission of Northwest Dharma Association: to support Buddhist teachings, practice, and community in the Pacific Northwest. We foster a network of friendship and support among Buddhist groups and individual Buddhists from all traditions, promote communication among Buddhists and with the larger community, and sponsor activities
of interest and benefit to Northwest Buddhists.
