Via the Buddhist Channel, news on an upcoming conference to be held down here in Southern California from October 9 to 11. This organization sounds great, they’ve certainly won my support.
The Buddhist Recovery Network supports the use of Buddhist teachings, traditions and practices to help people recover from the suffering caused by addictive behaviors. Open to people of all backgrounds, and respectful of all recovery paths, the organization promotes mindfulness and meditation, and is grounded in Buddhist principles of non-harming, compassion and interdependence. It seeks to serve an international audience through teaching, training, treatment, research, publication, advocacy and community-building initiatives.
You can read more about the conference on at the Buddhist Recovery Network website.
