Every three months, on the third Saturday of the month, the Recovery Dharma Online community (sangha) meets to discuss the functioning of our meetings and plans for the future. In Buddhist communities, planning committees like ours are often referred to as an Intersangha.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A RECOVERY MEETING!
There is no meditation at Intersangha meetings, and the focus is on efficiently sharing resources and making decisions about the community in support of all our other, recovery-focused, meetings.
Meeting facilitators are encouraged to attend, and all community members are welcome to participate as well! Learn more about our governance and decision-making on the About RDO page.
