Buddhist Recovery Network - 2017 Summit - How you can Help!
How you can help!
How you can help!
On the final day of the retreat, we discussed the Buddhist Recovery Network (BRN) and asked for ideas and volunteers to assist the BRN in its mission. This is your opportunity to join one or more of the Working Sanghas we identified as key to the future of Buddhist Recovery:
- Regional BRN Affiliates:
Identify and nurture Buddhist Recovery Regions globally. Regions can be geographic and/or by interest group (ie single parents, differently abled, POC, etc). Regions would be supported by BRN with promotion, linking web page(s), and give advice.
- Website/Social Media, Community Outreach and Communication:
Maintain and improve www.buddhistrecovery.org. Develop online resources. Monitor and post on the BRN Facebook page and other social media sites. Create and distribute news, event information, fundraising appeals and other means of engaging and promoting Buddhist Recovery.
- Facilitator Training/Meeting Incubator:
Assist in the spread and creation of Buddhist Recovery meetings worldwide. Provide resources, training, guidelines from a multitude of influences. Assist practitioners, teachers, clinics and anyone interested in starting a Buddhist Recovery meeting. Create guidelines and code of conduct for meetings. Explore what we can learn from the 12 step tradition and incorporate this into our guidelines.
- Buddhist Recovery Summit and Retreat Planning:
Assist in all aspects of planning annual or semi annual Buddhist Recovery Summits and retreats: Destination and venue selection, content, speakers, activities and more.
