Heart of Recovery Sundays 7-8:30 p.m. Fort Collins Shambhala Meditation Center 126 A West Mountain Ave. Fort Collins Colorado 80524 Please see “Directions” There is no cost, and no requirement for meditation experience. Everyone is welcome.
Heart of Recovery is a weekly meeting that joins Buddhist meditation, and 12-step work in order to connect to and engage in a commitment to recovery from addiction, addictive behaviors and patterns in our lives. We provide basic meditation instruction, group meditation, and work with a twelve-step, Buddhist/spiritual understanding of recovery. Everyone is invited to participate regardless of any affiliation or non-affiliation with any religious view or 12- step program.
This gathering is not associated with any 12-step program, and is not intended to replace a 12-step program, any counseling or care you may be in. We suggest you use this meeting as a supplement to deepen your recovery and enhance your spiritual connection.
Our format begins with introductions; a brief instruction on meditation, followed by a 20-minute sitting. The group leader will then share a brief reading. The floor will be open for sharing and discussion for around 45 minutes. We will end with a brief period of meditation and a closing dedication.
We recognize that the anonymity and confidentiality, of who is present here and what is said here, are essential principals to respect.
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.
