What we're about
Our group is no longer holds meetings. However, our main group still gathers regularly online. Visit the Buddhist Faith Fellowship at www.bffct.org.
~~Discover liberation from craving and addiction.~~
~~WE WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME YOU~~ ~~to our 12 Step Buddhist Group, a non- sectarian chapter of the Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut. We are a community focused on recovery.~~
~~We use both the buddhist version of the 12 Steps and the Buddha's Eightfold path to help us in our collective journey into a mindful and recovery oriented lifestyle. You do not need to be in any specific kind of recovery to participate in the group. We welcome anyone who struggles with the suffering associated with addiction and craving or those touch by them via family, friends and other relationships, and who seeks to cultivate freedom and peace through living mindfully.~~
~~Our meetings include inspirational Buddhist scriptural readings, silent meditation, mindfulness, prayer and plenty of discussion. Brief meditation instruction is always given to new guests. In addition, all guests will receive an inspirational gift book called, A Teaching A Day.~~
~~We are a complimentary approach to recovery. We are not a substitute. Seeing a therapist, doctor, counselor etc. are still advisable and necessary on the road to full recovery.~~
