Heart of Recovery Group

Shambhala Meditation Center of Washington, D.C.

Meetings are anonymous and confidential and explore the relationship of addictions and recovery to our personal paths as warriors, bodhisattvas, and meditation practitioners. Meeting format includes: sitting practice; a topic offering in the form of brief comments or a reading by the night’s facilitator; discussion and exploration by group members; sharing our personal experience, strength and hope; dedication of merit.
Open to all who are: Buddhist practitioners (from any tradition), or 12 Step practitioners (from any program), or individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors.

No need to apply, just show up!
Our group is open to those new to meditation and seasoned practitioners alike with a common interest in the intersection of Buddhist teachings and 12 Step recovery. All 12 Steppers are welcome and we ask that participants have continuous recovery, as defined by their 12 Step group, and that a working relationship with that group be established before attending your first meeting.
