Buddhist Recovery Meetings - Country: Ireland
Venue: Yoga Loft at the Holistic House of Healing
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm (please arrive by 6:50pm for a prompt start at 7:00pm)
Address: 4 Buttermilk Walk, Galway City, Ireland (Green Door)
Other info: The ‘Galway Group’ is a peer support group for people who are suffering because of addiction problems, substance abuse, depression, stress, burnout, or other forms of obsessive behaviour. We offer a learning space for those who would like to work on relieving their stresses and anxieties. From the position of recovery, our practice lies in awakening the heart of wisdom and compassion. This heart is our own true heart — the essence of peace, harmony and joy — and it is not separate from the heart of all beings.
Each ‘sit and share’ meeting begins with 10-minutes of serenity meditation. This is a simple breathing meditation to calm the breath, relax the body and quiet the mind.
This is followed by a further 10-minute active contemplation of a topic chosen by the group. This meditation involves the examination of the chosen topic in all areas of our life. Individuals are then invited to share on the topic as it relates to their recovery or abstinence. There is no expectation or obligation on any individual to ‘share’; they can simply ‘pass’ if they so wish.
The last meditation of the night may be a guided or a silent 30-minute ‘sit’.
Lastly, there is the opportunity to have tea or coffee and a chat before the evening ends at 9:00pm.
