Buddhist Recovery Summit 2019 with Vince Cullen - Hungry Ghost Retreats - Nalagiri House

The Buddhist Recovery Network (BRN) will be hosting the next BRN Summit in Lacey, Washington September 5-8, 2019.  The title of this year’s summit is:

Recovery: What’s Buddhism Got to Do With It?

Come join us at the intersection of Buddhist practice and recovery from addiction.   The summit will be a global gathering of teachers, authors, healers, meeting facilitators and practitioners.  All recovery paths and Buddhist lineages are welcome. During the 4-day retreat, we will engage in presentations, group discussion and sharing, practice, networking, collaborating and much more. Some of the topics for this year’s summit include:

  • Addressing trauma and creating safe spaces in our sanghas and in the “rooms.”
  • Early Buddhist teachings on addiction and recovery.  Using stories and suttas from the Pali Canon to address modern challenges.
  • Review and experience the many formats for Buddhist Recovery meetings: Refuge Recovery, Heart of Recovery, Eight Step Recovery, 12-step focused, other.
  • Buddhist Recovery past, present and future.  Where do we go from here? How can the BRN help?

The Summit will be held at the Gwinwood Retreat Center in Lacey Washington (site of the 2017 summit). Sitting on 29-acres, Gwinwood features 18 acres of forested land, 4 acres of open meadows and 7 acres of undisturbed wetlands, all fronting beautiful Hicks Lake.  The summit fee will include accommodations and vegetarian meals.
