Heart of Recovery
Philadelphia Shambhala Center’s Heart of Recovery (formerly Working With Addictions)
$2 suggested donation
Meets weekly on Friday evenings at 7:30 PM.
A weekly support group bringing together Buddhist meditation practice and
the wisdom of recovery. Meetings are anonymous and confidential and explore
the relationship of addiction and recovery to our personal path as warriors,
bodhisattvas, and meditators through readings, contemplations, and sharing.
If you have any questions, please contact Mark at [email protected]
Each week we:
~ Meditate with others who are in recovery or exploring recovery
~ Offer contemplations or readings which inspire our recovery and support our practices
~ Share our personal experience, strength and courage
~ Integrate the basic goodness of meditation with our commitment to 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
Open to meditation practitioners from all traditions and to Twelve Step practitioners from all programs.
