The Heart of Recovery is a meditation and sharing support group with the purpose of bringing together the practice of meditation, the Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, and the Twelve Steps of Recovery with the goal of integrating the basic sanity of the Dharma and the basic goodness of meditation with our commitment to abstinence. We welcome all those who wish to share in these common interests.

THERE ARE NO REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND OUR MEETINGS

We welcome all Buddhist and meditation practitioners from all traditions, Twelve Step practitioners from all programs and/or anyone struggling with addiction. We find that our group is a very mix bunch that come from many different backgrounds. We get people from AA, NA, OA, MA, and Al-Alon as well as people with no 12 step affiliation. The common factor is that addiction has touched all of us in way or another and now we are looking for some way to understand what that means through the practice of meditation.

GROUP FORMAT

The format of this meeting is a 20-minute guided meditation, a reading and group discussion followed by announcements, and a brief closing meditation and Dedication of the Merit. We will close about 9 PM.

Though we do not claim to be a 12 step meeting we do follow some of their traditions such no cross talking during the meeting, keep your shares to personal experiences and please keep the anonymity of the individuals attending the group. For more information email the group’s coordinator at heartofrecovery@gmail.com.
