Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

Page Advancement

The calendar displays ~50 listings per page.  To advance to next page with ~50 more listings, click the right arrow in the lower left corner of the calendar

What is Marijuana Anonymous?

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

The only requirement is a desire to stop using marijuana. There are no dues or fees for membership. MA is fully self-supporting through members’ contributions. MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. This is done by practicing the suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided by the Twelve Traditions.

Ultimately, hope for recovery lies in the individual addict’s ability to recognize that they have a problem and that they need help. The point at which one recognizes the need for help is commonly referred to as a “bottom” or a moment of clarity. The addict must have a true desire to stop using and the willingness to admit that the problem cannot be coped with alone.

WHAT IS RECOVERY DHARMA?

Recovery Dharma is a peer-led movement and community that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that the traditional Buddhist teachings, often referred to as the Dharma, offer a powerful approach to healing from addiction and living a life of true freedom.

We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as partners walking the path together. We believe that recovery is rooted in finding our own inner wisdom and individual journeys.

Recovery Dharma is founded on, and inspired by, Buddhism that originated in India and later on flourished in other regions of Asia (e.g., South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia). We deeply appreciate the Buddhist heritage that was protected and freely offered by the ancestors of these cultures.

About Book Study Meetings

“Book Study” is the standard format for Recovery Dharma meetings, featuring a reading from the Recovery Dharma Book to inspire shares:

  • Introductory readings about RD’s practices and principles
  • 20 minute guided meditation
  • Book reading on a specific topic
  • Group sharing about that topic, the meditation, or our recovery
  • Closing announcements and dedication of merit

Virtual Parking Lot: As with all meetings, we stay online after the meeting for casual fellowship, to exchange contact information and to answer questions.

Please arrive early: Please join us 15 minutes before the meeting to ensure you have everything setup and to socialize before we start!

Meeting Materials

Please see the meeting format for a full script of what happens at this meeting!

Confidentiality

Everything seen and heard in Recovery Dharma meetings is strictly private and confidential.

Name and contact info: Zoom should ask you for your name the first time you log in. Be careful to use the name you would like to be visible during the meeting. You may also change your name during the meeting using the meeting settings.

Audio and video: Attendees are able to share their webcam video and audio if they would like to, or disable one or both for privacy.

This is a safe space ONLY for people who racially identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.

For the safety and protection of this group, we ask that you have your video on at the beginning of every meeting to verify your identity before being admitted into the virtual healing space. This is a safe space for people who racially identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.

If for some reason you are unable to use the video, because you are at work or it doesn’t work, or for another reason, please let the facilitator or a co-host know through the chat feature. You will be placed in a waiting room while other participants are being screened and admitted. You will need to be able to find a place to use the video at least briefly before being admitted into the meeting. If you are someone who presents as white but feels that you belong in this space, you may be asked questions on how racism personally affects your life.

If there is no response when asked to turn on your video and/or audio and no response through the chat, you will be respectively removed from this meeting. We are creating a safe space where people can share their recovery authentically and confidentially.

If you do NOT identify as a part of our BIPOC community and are an ally, the best way that you can support us is by leaving the meeting now and honoring our sacred space. If you are someone who presents as white but feels that you belong in this space, please acknowledge this when it comes time for introductions so that we can welcome you as someone who personally experiences racism in your daily life.

If you are calling in, we ask that you unmute and introduce yourself during the introduction part of the meeting.

To protect the safety of our group, we will not admit latecomers who arrive 15 minutes past the start of the meeting. We encourage you to arrive early to allow time for verifying your identity.

If you have a Security or Safety concern at any time during the meeting, please use the Chat feature to alert the facilitator or a co-host.

Thank you.

WHAT IS RECOVERY DHARMA?

Recovery Dharma is a peer-led movement and community that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that the traditional Buddhist teachings, often referred to as the Dharma, offer a powerful approach to healing from addiction and living a life of true freedom.

We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as partners walking the path together. We believe that recovery is rooted in finding our own inner wisdom and individual journeys.

Recovery Dharma is founded on, and inspired by, Buddhism that originated in India and later on flourished in other regions of Asia (e.g., South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia). We deeply appreciate the Buddhist heritage that was protected and freely offered by the ancestors of these cultures.

What is Marijuana Anonymous?

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

The only requirement is a desire to stop using marijuana. There are no dues or fees for membership. MA is fully self-supporting through members’ contributions. MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. This is done by practicing the suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided by the Twelve Traditions.

Ultimately, hope for recovery lies in the individual addict’s ability to recognize that they have a problem and that they need help. The point at which one recognizes the need for help is commonly referred to as a “bottom” or a moment of clarity. The addict must have a true desire to stop using and the willingness to admit that the problem cannot be coped with alone.
