Guiding Council

The Guiding Council holds a leadership role in working with the board and teachers to serve the needs of the ICD sangha. It replaces the former Guiding Teacher role with a more distributed and collaborative model.

If you would like to connect with a Guiding Council Teacher (GCT) regarding Dharma teachings or practice, send us a message here,

Please note that the GCT will do their best to reply within 24 hours.
