The Guiding Board

The Guiding Board is a group of fourteen meditators representing and serving the worldwide Community. It gives direction on matters of broad concern within the community. These include major new initiatives but also the simple integrity of the teaching which is the heart of the community's life and mission. The Board oversees the service provided to the national communities by the International Team and the London International Office, new initiatives and outreach. The Director of the Community is a member of the Board, which also oversees succession and continuity in all the main leadership roles in the Community. The Guiding Board thus provides overall direction to the life and mission of the Community. It formulates a medium term strategy that is updated at its annual meetings after consultation with the national communities. Four members of the Board have particular responsibility for the countries in their global region.
