10 mars

    Held every second Saturday of the Month at 7:30 pm.

    “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


    The Heart of Recovery is a group meeting at the Shambhala Center focused on sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to sobriety.  Newcomers will learn basic meditation techniques to enhance, not replace, their own recovery program in a familiar and comfortable environment. Experienced meditators will discover new ways to deepen their current practice while supporting the group.

    • sitting practice
    • a topic offering in the form of brief comments or a reading by the facilitator
    • discussion and exploration by group members
    • sharing our personal experience, strength, and hope

    Open to all who are:
    • Buddhist practitioners from any tradition or
