Buddhist Recovery Meeting


Day/time: Tuesdays  —  7:30pm


Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society

4300 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90029   Map


Other info:

The meeting will focus on Buddhist teachings, traditions and practices that can be helpful to people recovering from all addictions. There will be an emphasis on meditation practice and waking up to the habitual patterns that drive us and our unskillful behaviors. These are not 12-Step meetings, but we will see how the steps can be understood from a Buddhist perspective.
Each week the meeting will focus on a different topic:

  • Four Truths of Recovery
  • Fifth Precept
  • Buddhist Perspective on the 12 Steps
  • Speaker

These meetings are appropriate for anyone in recovery, or interested in recovery. No meditation experience is necessary.
