The Buddhist Recovery Summit 2017, organized by the Northwest Dharma Association, in conjunction with the Buddhist Recovery Network, will be held at Gwinwood Retreat Center in Lacey, Washington on the weekend of October 20-22, 2017.

The summit is open to anyone interested in Buddhist recovery. Space is quite limited, so it is important to confirm your interest in attending as soon as possible.

The questions we will be exploring include:

  • What are the defining characteristics of Buddhist recovery?
  • How does Buddhist recovery intersect with the Twelve-Step model?
  • What are the pros and cons of facilitated and peer-led recovery groups?
  • How do we strengthen national and international networks (BRN)?
  • What does sponsorship or mentorship look like in the movement?

We are gathering as peers to discuss the current climate of Buddhist Recovery and its future and to share our experience, strength, and hope.

If you cannot attend, there will be a report on the summit and information on future events available through the Buddhist Recovery Network. You can sign up for the mailing list here.

If you would like to attend just the Saturday portion of the summit, including three meals, the panel presentations, and other summit activities of that day, please email us at info@buddhistrecoverysummit.org
