Home Page

Sundays – 7-8:30 p.m. Fort Collins Shambhala Meditation Center. 126 A. West Mountain Ave. Fort Collins Colorado 80524. Please see “Directions”

Everyone is welcome. There is no cost, and no requirement for meditation experience.

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.
