Heart of Recovery

Heart of Recovery: Meditation for people in recovery.      

Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm–8:30 pm.

Now reading Noah Levine’s Refuge Recovery.

Drawing inspiration from the Four Noble Truths, Refuge Recovery emphasizes both knowledge and empathy as a means for overcoming addiction and its causes. Those struggling with any form of addiction greatly benefit when they are able to understand the suffering that addiction has created while developing compassion for the pain they have experienced.

 

The Heart of Recovery is a group meeting focused on sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to recovery from addictions of all kinds. Newcomers will learn basic meditation techniques to enhance, not replace, their own recovery program in a familiar and comfortable environment. Experienced meditators will discover new ways to deepen their current practice while supporting the group.

Heart of Recovery is open to all meditation practitioners, all 12-step practitioners and anyone interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors.

Meetings will include sitting practice and discussion and exploration of topics to share our experience, strength and hope.
