The current book pages are posted on the zoom screen during shared reading, so purchasing a book is not necessary!

The Buddhist 12 Step Book Study Group (B12) explores how Buddhism and 12 Step recovery programs can benefit and nurture each other. Both practices begin with the acknowledgement of suffering, the realization that suffering arises from craving, and that there is a solution. The path of the 12 Steps and the Noble Eightfold Path travel through remarkably similar territory and have much to offer each other.


No meditation experience or particular faith or spiritual practice is required. Neither is membership in a 12 Step Program. We are simply people exploring the path out of the suffering brought about by craving and clinging... in whatever form that arises. You don't have to believe anything! The Buddha encouraged his students to "come and see" for yourself, and to learn by your own direct experience.


We have been meeting regularly since March 2015, and currently meet every Saturday from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. Attendees are often from the following fellowships: NA, AA, OA, Alanon, ACA, and CoDa. Following a brief welcoming and introduction period, there is a 20 minute guided mindfulness meditation, followed by shared reading of a Buddhist Recovery themed book, and discussion on how the dharma teachings impact our addiction recovery. We end with Loving Kindness (Metta) practice, followed by Dedication of Merit.

All are welcome, please zoom with us!

Meeting ID: 743 499 4532
Passcode: 124108

This is a weekly gathering interweaving Buddhist meditation practice and addiction recovery. We are not a replacement for traditional 12-Step Groups, but a supplement to them. You do not have to be a Buddhist to participate in this group or be in any specific recovery program to attend. We welcome anyone who struggles with the suffering associated with craving and who seeks to cultivate peace through living mindfully.  The purpose of the group is to:

  • Meditate with others who are in recovery or exploring recovery
  • Share readings from Buddhist authors that apply to our addiction recovery journey
  • Share our personal experience, strength, and courage
  • Integrate the basic goodness of meditation with our commitment to recovery

“Sobriety is finding a new way of living that involves engagement where there was withdrawal; generosity where there was self-centeredness; a community where there was isolation; joy where there was bitterness; trust where there was cynicism.”

 - Kevin Griffin, One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps

Holland


Meditation & Recovery Meeting


Day/time: Monday  —  8:00pm - 9:00pm EST


Online - Great Heartland Buddhist Temple of Toledo

6537 Angola Road, Holland, OH 43528   Map


Other info:

Meeting virtually during the pandemic, email for info.

This weekly meeting is open to people with any addiction, seeking recovery or in support of anyone seeking recovery. Honoring the traditions of anonymity in other recovery programs and to protect the privacy of our members, we use only our first names at this meeting.


With respect for the worth and dignity of each person, all are welcome here. We respect all forms of meditation, however during the meditation period, we ask that everyone be quiet and still out of respect for the practice.

The purpose of this meeting is to strengthen our meditation practice by communal effort and thereby strengthen our recovery program. Our meeting includes time for prayer or intention setting, meditation and discussion. Our discussion period offers us a chance to share openly about our experiences with meditation and recovery. For those new to meditation, beginning instruction will be offered.
