 The Buddhist Recovery Network is in solidarity with the BIMPOC populations.      

  • We will not stay quiet in the face of public modern day lynchings of Black and Brown Bodies.
  • We will not be silent over the racial injustices that are prevalent in the USA, Canada, UK and many other countries in Europe.
  • In moving forward we want to be an organization that has Diversity, Inclusion and Equity at the heart of our mission.
  • We aspire to support recovery groups that prioritize the needs of Black and Indigenous People of Color
  • We will work to support creating safer spaces where people from these and other marginalized populations are safe and welcome in all recovery meetings.

Vince Cullen Next BRN Academy teaching with Vince Cullen -- July 4th 2021 @ 1:00pm US Pacific Time

Cabbages and Condoms

Life is naturally difficult and disappointing. All living creatures are programmed to seek security and safety, and as humans, we also seek certainty. As a result, we often live life as unconscious prisoners of fear.
 
Fear of this world and of a next world, fear of sickness and of death, fear of insecurity and of being defenceless, fear of the unknown and of the unexpected. In short, fear of life itself.
 
In this month's Academy talk, I hope to explore some links between fear and craving.  I will offer some ideas, particularly using the Heart practices including forgiveness, for how we might meet life on life's terms to live a compassionate, confident and fearless life.
