In June, vipassana teachers from around the globe gathered at Spirit Rock to convene as a sangha, and discuss issues relevant to teaching in our modern context. Ayya Tathaaloka wrote about the session on climate change and her experience here. There was time for practice, discussion and connection. We were honored to have so many wonderful teachers on the land at one time. May their work and service in the world continue to ripple out to all beings everywhere.
