A 20-minute sitting meditation, a reading and group discussion, followed by announcements and a brief closing meditation.
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 our meetings.
We welcome 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 mixed 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 one way or another and now we are looking for some way to understand what that means.
The format of this meeting is a 20-minute sitting meditation, a reading and group discussion followed by announcements, a brief closing meditation and the Dedication of Merit. We generally close around 7:30 PM.
