Heart of Recovery: Meditation for People in Recovery

June 3 / 5:30 PM - June 3 / 7:00 PM

"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

 The Heart of Recovery is a group meeting at the Shambhala Center focused on sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to sobriety.  Newcomers will learn basic meditation techniques to enhance, not replace, their own recovery program in a familiar and comfortable environment. Experienced meditators will discover new ways to deepen their current practice while supporting the group.

Meeting format includes:
• sitting practice
• a topic offering in the form of brief comments or a reading by the night’s facilitator
• discussion and exploration by group members
• sharing our personal experience, strength, and hope
• dedication of merit

Open to all who are:
• Buddhist practitioners from any tradition or
• 12 Step practitioners from any program or
• Individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors

Cost: Free

Meets Weekly on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm
