The Heart of Recovery

May 20 / 7:30 PM - May 20 / 9:00 PM

Mondays at 7:30PM (Cancelled until further notice. Please check back in the Spring!)


The Heart of Recovery is a drop-in meditation meeting for anyone recovering from anything.  There’s meditation with a bit of guidance (not that you have to do it that way), a reading, and discussion in a 12-step format.


“Everyone loves the idea of living in the moment,” said one teacher, “just not this moment.”


Meditation isn’t about “blissing out,” but dealing with the way our minds are—right here, right now.  The trick is being precise and gentle and actually doing it—a big help, regardless of what you believe in or don’t.
