Sunshine Meditation Center

7:00pm – 8:00pm

Type:

Buddhists In Recovery

Address:

11727 N. Ola Ave., Tampa, FL 33612 (map)

Other info:

This weekly meditation group is open to anyone who is recovering from any addictions, whether you are a member of a 12-Step group, a Non-12-Step group, or no recovery group.

We meet at the Sunshine Meditation Center, a Buddhist monastery located in Tampa, Florida. We open the meeting with a period of meditation, followed by short dharma talk (given by the monk in residence) and close with a question and answer session.
We give each other support and share our experience, strength and hope for those in recovery from a Buddhist perspective.

Our group is facilitated by Bhante Saddhasara, a Buddhist monk in the Theravada tradition. While not a recovering addict himself, “Bhante” regularly attends 12 Step meetings and has studied recovery-based literature. Bhante’s efforts to educate himself about addiction gives him unique insights on how Buddhist teachings and practices can help those in recovery.
