Rigpa Lerab Ling Congregation coordination team
The Lerab Ling Coordination team holds the overview and the responsibility for all areas of Lerab Ling congregation.
It is responsible for holding the activity and the sustainability of the center and for enacting the chapter’s decisions for Lerab Ling. In particular it takes care of ensuring we have a balanced and sustainable programme, support for other Rigpa countries, a complete programme of spiritual practice in the temple, internal and external communication, hospitality service, and care for the community.
It meets regularly with the aim of making sure we are on track with everything, sharing information and checking interdependencies.
