This one was a success!…The Planning Committee did an excellent job. Top Rated speakers carrying the message, beautiful workshops designed to show how to start Al-Anon and Alateen when you get home.. We had about 180 registered plus the walk-ins..hotel was sold out, banquet was sold out. The room was filled with fellowship and love. We had Alateen speakers before each main speakers. The speakers were wrapped in a Pendleton Blanket when they finished, an honor song sung while the people lined up to shake their hands and thank them. Each day began with song and prayer. there was an alter build outside so people could pray. more details to follow…we want to thank all of you who helped get the word out, thank you for passing the information about the conference to your contacts.
This evening is the opening of the First Native American Al-Anon Conference. Come and join the Fellowship!
This historic First Native American Al-Anon Conference is here. Final preparations during the Day, Thursday, getting things ready for the main event.
We are grateful for all of you who have supported this effort by helping spread the word, made sacrifices to get to Albuquerque to attend, grateful to the planning committee who tirelessly pulled this miracle together, and mostly we are grateful to the Creator for the guidance.
We know this will help our families and or children to heal from the effects of alcohol. May the words flow from the speakers and the fellowship that will allow many of the attendants go back home to our communities and start the Al-anon family groups and the Alateen groups.
White Bison is happy to announce an app (Apple Store)called Elders Meditations. It is our desire to connect our youth with their cells phones to read the Native Elders Teachings each morning.
The app is free, unless you want to do a donation.
We ask all of you who are parents or run Native youth organizations, to pass this information on to our young people and encourage them to check out the daily Teaching.
The app allows you to see the current Meditation as well as reviewing the past Meditations. You can also order the hardcopy Meditation book from the Store on the White Bison Web site www.whitebison.org
This is White Bison’s gift to our youth, to those who are involved in the Wellbriety Movement, to those in treatment, to those in recovery and others who enjoy starting their day connecting to the Elders Teachings.
Come find out how to start Native Alateen in your community.
In Alateen you will find you are not alone.
