The International Council met at Adhisthana from the 1st to the 8th of August 2016.

Here is a presentation of who was there, the areas of interest to different Area Councils, and the programme.

It also includes the priorities going forward for the International Council over the next year or two: what each of the strands is taking forward, and what the Council as a whole has set as priorities. These include a response to diversity and access, a review of the system of training, and support for kalyana mitrata where there is disharmony.

In addition to the coming together of College, Order and movement from across the world, one of the highlights of the meeting was the unanimous blessing of the What is a Triratna Centre document. The executive summary includes all this and more.

Hi there, many thanks for this summary, very useful and pretty! I realise that a lot of work goes into making it attractive. I am particularly interested to note that many of the Order strand outcomes are in line with the work of the International Order Office team, which supports the work of the Parami and Lokeshvara worldwide and endeavors to keep the Order connected and informed!

I have a couple of comments…..

  • Firstly as a dyslexic the changes in the sizes of the lettering and numbering make it very difficult for me to read, and I know I am not alone in this!
  • It would be very helpful to have a printable version available for easy reference and a different kind of readability.

Thanks for all you do, much appreciated. xx

I’m attaching a simple text only version, otherwise you can print out the pdf in black and white or colour.
