Using the booklet “9 Essays: Buddhism and the 12th Step Model of Recovery” made available to us by the generosity of the San Francisco Zen Center, this group will be exploring the connection between practice and recovery. Our mission is to bridge the Twelve Steps of AA and the four Noble Truths of Buddhism. The meeting will include a 20 minute silent meditation sit, a reading from the “9 Essays”, and an open discussion in the format of an AA meeting.

Booklets can be downloaded from the internet. Click to download a PDF file of “9 Essays on Buddhism & the 12 Step Model of Recovery”

We will be adhering to the AA traditions (which include anonymity and confidentiality).
Creating a supportive community is an opportunity to strengthen our commitment to daily practice.

3rd floor

Other info:

A weekly support group bringing together Buddhist meditation practice and the wisdom of recovery. Meetings are anonymous and confidential and explore the relationship of addiction and recovery to our personal path as warriors, bodhisattvas, and meditators through readings, contemplations, and sharing.

Each week we:

  • Meditate with others who are in recovery or exploring recovery
  • Offer contemplations or readings which inspire our recovery and support our practices
  • 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; 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

Open to meditation practitioners from all traditions and to Twelve Step practitioners from all programs.
