About the Meeting List Process
The year 2020 initiated many changes in our lives. One huge change is how we gather. In March of 2020, the number of Recovery Dharma online meetings skyrocketed from 20 to 267 in just two weeks. We created a spreadsheet that we believed would be a temporary solution. As the year has progressed, so has the spreadsheet.
We are now in the process of creating a new meeting list structure in concert with our new website.
We are decentralized and leaderless, and there are no rules to follow other than that the meeting should be an open, safe, and accessible space that tries to uphold our core principles of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity. The advice in this chapter comes from the collective experience of hundreds of local groups, and so it’s offered in the spirit of friendly guidance rather than direction.
