Heart & Sangha
Join the Southeast Refuge Recovery Region March 15th - 17th in Asheville, NC as we share our Hearts and Sangha. Over the course of the weekend, you'll have the opportunity to participate and practice with others all across the region. Our efforts will center on the Heart and Sangha. There will be engagingly relevant discussion panels, compassionately focused Dharma Talks, and plenty of time to meaningfully connect with yourself and your Refuge Recovery community. You'll also be presented with opportunities to grow your Refuge Recovery community on the local, regional, and national levels. We would love to see you there and spend time working together as we cultivate Heart & Sangha.
