Cincinnati


B12: Buddhism and 12 Step Book Study Group


Day/time: Every Saturday night  —  7:00pm - 8:30pm


Buddhist Dharma Center of Cincinnati

15 Moline Court, Northside, Cincinnati, OH 45223   Map
(Off Hamilton Ave.)


Other info:

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 are currently reading and studying Cool Water: Alcoholism, Mindfulness and Ordinary Recovery by William Alexander. We end with Loving Kindness (Metta) practice, followed by Dedication of Merit.

Other 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.
A weekly book club meets just prior to this meeting to read and discuss a book related to meditation and recovery.
