Statement of Intent:
The United Kingdom Buddhist Recovery Network (BRNUK) is intended to develop to be able to support the use of Buddhist teachings, traditions and practices to help people recover from the suffering caused by addictive behaviours. Open to people of all backgrounds, and respectful of all recovery paths, the developing organisation will promote mindfulness and meditation, and be grounded in Buddhist principles of non-harming, compassion and interdependence. We seek to serve through teaching, training, treatment, research, publication, advocacy and community-building initiatives.
The BRNUK is inspired by the International Buddhist Recovery Network (www.buddhistrecovery.org).
This web resource is offered as an invitation to encourage networking among those who see the opportunities Buddhist practice may offer in supporting recovery from addiction.
If you would like to get involved, please join the discussion list and introduce yourself.
