The Heart of Recovery

September 29 / 7:30 PM - September 29 / 9:00 PM

A weekly meditation and sharing support group bringing together Buddhist meditation practice and the Twelve Steps. The group will meet weekly in the main shrine room to:

~ Welcome each other
~ Practice Shamatha Viphasyana (peace of mind, awareness of mind) meditation
~ Share our personal experience, strength and hope

We will use the principles of Council (a talking stick) practice and The Twelve Step traditions (no cross talk & anonymity) to:

~ Integrate the basic goodness of meditation with our commitment to abstinence

'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
