Buddhism and the 12 Step Model of Recovery

Day/time: Mondays  —  7:00pm - 8:15pm

In Person Meetings start with a 20-minute meditation

This meeting format grew out of the Meditation and Recovery group which began meeting weekly at the San Francisco Zen Center in 2000.

As they studied the 12 Steps and Buddhist Mindfulness together, sometimes from one perspective, sometimes from the other, the collective experience and wisdom grew. Each time they read and discussed the Steps---or the Four Noble Truths or the precepts or the concept of no-self---a bit of wisdom was added to their understanding.

It is our hope and desire to provide a similar meeting format that combines 12 Step Recovery principles and concepts with those of Buddhist Mindfulness, 4 noble truths and the Precepts and Concept of Non-self.

This meeting is open to anyone who has an interest in 12 step recovery process and Buddhist Mindfulness precepts and concepts.
