Heart of Recovery

June 30 / 1:00 PM - June 30 / 2:15 PM


Every Sunday afternoon from 1:00- 2:15 pm at The Austin Shambhala Meditation Center, 1702 S. 5th Street.  Meeting is in the Smith House (white house facing Milton Street); ADA accessible; #5 Bus.


We welcome all Twelve Step participants (AA, NA, Al-Anon, OA, SLAA, etc.) who have an interest in combining the principles of their program of recovery with Buddhist teachings and practices. This is a peer support group. We begin with a 20 minute meditation followed by open sharing.


'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—Buddhist practitioners from all traditions and Twelve Step practitioners from all programs
