Although we have several visiting teachers every year, many of our events at Aryaloka are facilitated by local members of our Order. In Triratna, we do not have a guru; rather, we lead together, working in the spirit of consensus and from the initial vision of our founder Urgyen Sangharakshita. We value spiritual friendship and the value of peer support, while also acknowledging that some of us have more experience than others. Below you will find some of our local Order Members who lead our classes or retreats either regularly or from time to time.
