BRN Statement in support of our Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander (AAPI) community

  • 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.

Mary Stancavage Next BRN Academy teaching with Mary Stancavage -- February 5th 2023 @ 10:00am US Pacific Time

All You Need is Love

In our world it seems that hate and anger are so prevalent it can feel overwhelming at times. In our own lives, it's also quite easy for us to slip into aversion and othering while finding it fully justified. In this talk Mary discusses the need to name love as a foundation of our practice. The Buddha gave us the Metta Sutta as well as other teachings on how to be with a mind imbued with lovingkindness and compassion. This foundation of love will allow us to fully open to the world and to ourselves, letting go of the need to create barriers. Turning towards love is the answer.
