WHAT: We are a group of people gathering to practice Vipassana meditation and to examine the correlations that exist between the 12 steps and Buddhist Dharma. WHO: We are open to the public. People from 12 step fellowships and non-addicts are welcome. Both groups can find these principles useful. We are not a 12 step meeting. HOW: We start with a guided sitting meditation followed by a short dharma talk designed to help people understand Buddhist principles and their value to those who are recovering from addiction.
