12 Step Buddhist Recovery & Support Group: freedom from craving & addiction

Looking to be addiction or craving free? Are your seeking to be sober, clean and free? We have established the first Buddhist 12 Step Group for addiction recovery in the State of Connecticut. You do not have to be a Buddhist to participate or benefit from our 12 Step Group. This non-sectarian group meets on Monday evenings at 7 – 8:30 @ the Church of the Holy Trinity, 381 Main Street, Middletown. Our 12 Step Group applies Buddhist principles to recovery. The 12 Step Buddhist by Darren Littlejohn is one of our Group’s guiding book. Other suggested books are One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the 12 Steps by Kevin Griffin, Mindful Recovery by Thomas Bien, and The Zen of Recovery by Mel Ash. For newcomers, the inspirational A Teaching A Day is given free o charge.

IMPORTANT: is just one venue used in our outreach. There is a minimum of 10 attendees every week. So, even though on Meetup it may say just one person RSVPed, you can expect at least 10 people in attendance. Feel free to come and join us. If you are interested in participating or are looking for more information about our Buddhist 12 Step Group or joining our 12 Step e-mailing list, contact us at ][masked]

    Tentative RSVP, depending on a professional committment. But I will try to make his meeting happen for me.
