Refuge Recovery is a program of recovery from all types of addiction and the suffering caused by addiction. It uses the Buddha’s core teachings, the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, as its main inspiration and guiding philosophy. Refuge Recovery takes a non-theistic approach to spiritual practice, asking people to believe in nothing beyond a process that includes meditation, wise actions and compassion, and to work at their recovery.
These meetings are based on the book, “Refuge Recovery: A Buddhist Path to Addiction Recovery”

Buddhist Alcohol Study Group

Address:

7024 E. Osborn Road Suite A, Scottsdale, AZ 85251 (map)
Suite G

Other info:

Sarpashana (pronounced Sar-pa-sha-na) is the Buddhist Alcohol Study Group, which began in the mid-1980s in Boulder for members dealing with alcoholism or alcohol-related problems. This is a study group for all those interested in relating their path of meditation and dharma studies to their alcohol or other addictions and recovery. We explore the challenges, as well as the opportunities, that our addictions and attachments provide us in this context. Sarpashana is not viewed as a substitute for other recovery systems, but as an additional support for other means of recovery. The meetings combine meditation, study, and discussion.
We begin with approximately 20 minutes of meditation, followed by a reading chosen by the facilitator or a volunteer. After all present have had an opportunity to share without cross-talk, we close with 5 minutes of meditation and a Dedication of Merit. Voluntary donations are welcome and appreciated but not required.

Refuge Recovery: Is a mindfulness-based addiction recovery community that practices and utilizes Buddhist philosophy as the foundation of the recovery process. Drawing inspiration from the core teachings of the Four Noble Truths, emphasis is placed on both knowledge and empathy as a means for overcoming addiction and its causes. Those struggling with any form of addiction greatly benefit when they are able to understand the suffering that addiction has created while developing compassion for the pain they have experienced. We hope to serve you, and meet you on the path.
