Heart of Recovery
May 20 / 7:00 PM - May 20 / 8:30 PM
***PLEASE NOTE: Heart of Recovery is CANCELLED on Monday February 11 only, due to the Shambhala Day, New Year Celebration***
A weekly meditation and sharing support group bringing together Mindfulness Meditation practice, the Twelve Steps, and discussion. The group meets to welcome each other, practice meditation, and share our personal experience, strength and hope. We use the principles of Council (a talking stone) practice and the Twelve Steps (no cross talk and anonymity) to integrate the basic goodness of meditation with our commitment to abstinence, work with reality, and find a joyful way of living.
1st and 3rd Mondays - Twelve Steps (11th Step emphasis)
2nd and 4th Mondays - Discussion on Selected Readings. Currently reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chödron
'Sobriety is finding a new way of living that involves engagement where there was withdrawal; generosity where there was self-centeredness; community where there was isolation; joy where there was bitterness; trust where there was cynicism.'
~ Kevin Griffin, One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps
Open to All—Meditation practitioners from all traditions and Twelve Step practitioners from all programs.
