Refuge Recovery began as a special project of the non-profit Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society in 2010. It was incorporated as a separate non-profit in February, 2015. Our Board brings a diversity of experience, skills and perspectives which mirror the diversity of our global sangha. The Board is entrusted with managing the legal and fiscal health of the Refuge Recovery non-profit organization, supporting the development of a comprehensive network of Refuge Recovery meetings and communities, leading an ethics and reconciliation process in collaboration with participants from Refuge’s member-elected Regional Representatives, offering training and education for our sangha members as well as the general public, and doing fundraising to support collaborative projects. In conjunction with the Regional Representatives, the Board sponsors an annual conference. Please contact our Board Chair, Christopher Kavanaugh, with any questions or comments: [email protected]
