Take a journey of growth, healing and self-discovery: Through the 12 Steps as interpreted in Buddhism.
The Buddhist Recovery Group is open to all people who suffer from any addiction or compulsive behavior and are looking for a comprehensive, transformative path to end their suffering. People who are dealing with alcoholism, drug addiction, sex addiction, eating disorders, gambling, and other compulsive or harmful behaviors are all members of this group.


This group will serve the needs of two distinct groups: (1) those people wishing to participate in a year-long step study, and (2) those people wishing to join in periodically throughout the year.


We will teach the traditional 12 Steps as outlined in "Alcoholics Anonymous" and with each step we will draw on Buddhism to highlight the similarities in each tradition to enhance the spiritual experience of the participant.


Suggested readings: Mindfulness and the 12 Steps: Living Recovery in the Present Moment by Thérèse Jacobs-Stewart, One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps by Kevin Griffin, as well as The Big Book and The 12 & 12.

Sangha in Recovery, 2011-2012


San Francisco Zen Center

300 Page Street, San Francisco, CA 94102   Map


Other info:

The San Francisco Zen Center is offering, in three trimesters, a yearlong experience of Sangha for people in recovery.

Those who join this group will commit to the practice of meditation three times a week (either at home or in a formal setting), attending a class on basic Buddhist concepts, meeting together and individually with the organizing teachers. Other opportunities will be offered throughout the year as electives.

This program is open to anyone in recovery from substance abuse or behavioral disorder. We ask that you be already involved in a recovery program and that you have a minimum of a year of continuous sobriety. Sangha in Recovery is not meant to replace, but to augment, our efforts elsewhere.

The year will be divided into three trimesters and the events scheduled to accommodate working people. The fees listed cover the class, the group meetings and meetings with teachers for the first trimester. The elective events are offered at a reduced rate for those enrolled in Sangha in Recovery.

For more information go to the SFZC website.

Dharma & Recovery


Day/time: 2nd Friday of each month  —  7:30pm - 9:30pm


Spirit Rock Meditation Center

5000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Woodacre, CA 94973   Map
(Community Meditation Hall)


Other info:

With Kevin Griffin or others.
This group explores the intersection of recovery with Buddhist Teachings and practices. We welcome all people who identify with any of the full range of addictions, from substances, to behaviors, to habitual thought and emotional patterns.
This is not a 12 Step group, but we look to ways that members of that community can support each other on the path of recovery. Each gathering begins with a period of guided meditation and new meditators are welcome. There is time for discussion about meditation practice and each month a recovery/dharma theme will be discussed.
To support the event and meet like-minded people, we encourage you to arrive early and/or stay after to help us with a few simple tasks. The first four people to sign up to volunteer will have their event registration fee waived!
Cost: $8-$10 sliding scale class fee, plus a donation to the teacher.
Pre-registration not required, just come!
