Vineyard Haven


Meditation Recovery


Day/time: Monday Evenings  —  6:00pm - 7:00pm


Vineyard Haven Public Library

200 Main St, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568   Map


Other info:

“Meditation Recovery” is a meditation group for anyone recovering from any addiction. Our focus is the ways in which Buddhist philosophy and the twelve steps of recovery intersect and enhance each other, and how meditation can deepen and enrich the spiritual path of recovery, though you don’t have to be a Buddhist to attend. We just work with our minds, and see what’s what.
Our format is meditation, a reading or presentation, and discussion. First there is a brief welcome/introduction, followed by a 15-minute meditation period. This is followed by a short reading a selected text, then discussion. We finish with another ten minutes of meditation, and close with the serenity prayer, and a bow.
This group is not affiliated with any major 12-step program, but many of our members are. Donations are accepted, but none is expected. This is an open meeting; all are welcome.
