This group is for anyone who is prone to addictive use of either substances or behaviors of any type, and who wants a venue for learning, support and self-discipline involving spiritual strategies which are common to all faiths (or none). Abusers with spiritual interests who are struggling with their former or current habits, and for whom faith-based or 12-step meetings (if you go to them) do not seem to be sufficient, will be interested In this meetup. If you're interested, the main "textbook" I use is D. Greggson & J Efran’s The Tao of Sobriety (Very cheap used online).  The meetings will have five parts: 1) initial socializing, 2) guided self-awareness exercises, 3) introspection exercise and Q&A, 4) guided meditation, and 5) conclusion and relapse prevention strategies. I’m a semi-retired academic and counselor with knowledge and experience in different spiritually-related healing modalities, who wants to share what he knows. (Do not assume that meditation involves sitting still!!)
