(Scroll down for registration and background info)

Dharma Teachers Leslie Rawls and Dennis Bohn will offer the training, which covers Boundaries, Sangha Relationships, Power and Vulnerability, Creating Healthy Boundaries Policies, and Self-Care.  The training is offered to increase awareness of the benefits of wholesome boundaries within Sanghas as a means of creating and nurturing a safe place for all Sangha participants. It includes presentations, group participation, and small group discussions.


All Sangha members may benefit from and are encouraged to attend the training, particularly those who facilitate or hold leadership roles.  Any member of your sangha is welcome to attend.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

At the request of the Dharma Teachers’ Care-Taking Council, this program was developed by Dharma Teachers Dennis Bohn, Fern Dorresteyn, and Leslie Rawls after they participated in a three-day Faith Trust Institute training, as well as an online training based in non-Plum Village Buddhist Healthy Boundaries training. Their initial  program was created with input from Plum Village monastics and lay Dharma Teachers. It has been offered over the past several years to local Sanghas, Dharma Teachers, Order members, and Sangha groups, and refined each time with input from participants. 

Please send any questions to us directly. Dennis’s email is dbohn@pipeline.com. Leslie’s email is leslierawlsdt@gmail.com.

In Gratitude,
Leslie Rawls and Dennis Bohn

Free No cost to attend
