    “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/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
