Heart of Recovery

Sundays | 10:30am – 12:00pm

Please note: Due to COVID-19, Heart of Recovery will be hosted online via Zoom until further notice.

“Sobriety is finding a new way of living that involves engagement where there was withdrawal; generosity where there was self-centeredness; community where there was isolation; joy where there was bitterness; trust where there was cynicism.”

  – Kevin Griffin, One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps

The Heart of Recovery is a group meeting at the Shambhala Center focused on sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to sobriety.  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.

Meeting format includes:
• sitting practice
• a topic offering in the form of brief comments or a reading by the facilitator
• discussion and exploration by group members
• sharing our personal experience, strength, and hope
• dedication of merit

Open to all who are:
• Buddhist practitioners from any tradition, or
• from any 12 step or other recovery program, or
• individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors


The Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
