Heart of Recovery®

Explore this recorded Shambhala Online course at your own pace.

Every Sunday / 10:30 AM – Noon Central Time/ Join Anytime

“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.

Meeting format includes:

• sitting practice
• a topic offering in the form of brief comments/reading by the 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
• from any 12 step or other recovery program, or
• individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors
