In these weekly sessions, meditators of various levels of experience gather to meditate, read Buddhist texts related to recovery, and discuss their personal struggles with addiction and recovery. As a community, we deal with all forms of addiction including alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs, sex, tobacco and others as well as problems resulting from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
Meetings are anonymous and confidential. No prior meditation or Buddhist experience is necessary to attend. The group is open to anyone who wishes to attend, regardless of religious affiliation. Basic meditation instruction is provided at all meetings. We are respectful of all recovery paths.
No registration is necessary. Meetings are open to all. There are no fees but donations are welcome and are used to cover room rental fees, purchase texts, and other costs. All service is performed by volunteers and no one receives payment for their services.

We encourage the use of mindfulness and meditation and are grounded in Buddhist principles including the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, non-harming, compassion, and interdependence. While not affiliated with any 12-Step group, we do follow the 12-Step traditions of confidentiality and no cross talk between participants.
This Group is peer led.  We ask all who attend to respect and study Buddhist teachings, recovery techniques and be willing to share their experience, strength and hope with the group.
