Eight Steps Meeting
Day/time: Mondays — 7:00pm
Eight Step Recovery is an alternative recovery program to the 12 step program of Alcoholic/Narcotics Anonymous. It uses the Buddhist teachings to overcome addiction. Eight Step Recovery, cofounded by Dr. Valerie Mason-John M.A (hon.doc) and Dr. Paramabandhu Groves Ph.D., is a set of mindfulness teachings outlining a suggested course of action for recovery from addiction, stinking thinking, negative mental states, and compulsive and obsessive behaviours.

Buddhism and the Twelve Steps
Day/time: Sundays — 1:00pm - 2:15pm
Ecumenical Buddhist Society of Little Rock
The Ecumenical Buddhist Society of Little Rock hosts an on-going group entitled Buddhism and the Twelve Steps each Sunday afternoon from 1:00-2:15 at our center at 1516 West 3rd St. in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The group practices silent sitting/meditation, engages in mindful discussion of the principles of Buddhism and twelve step recovery, and encourages open sharing with the aim to support our mutual practice of living a life of mindful sobriety.
The group is open to all. No participation in an outside 12-step group is required, nor is adherence to Buddhist teachings. Anyone who is suffering--with addiction or otherwise, or just wants to improve mindful living--might benefit from this group.
