Sangha Leadership

If you are a teacher, sangha leader or part of a stewardship team of a sangha of any size anywhere, this is your page.

BIN's primary purpose is to help local sanghas in your endeavor to share the dharma, build community, and develop in a way that is supportive to your group members and consistent with the dharma.

As a small all-volunteer organization, we rely on your participation to make this resource meaningful.


You are invited to join in an ongoing discussion with many other sangha leaders and teachers with common concerns. We have an Intersangha Google email group that you are welcome to join by contacting us here
