    Eightfold Path Recovery Group
    Current meeting time(s): Tuesday at 7PM

    Class description

    The Eightfold Path Recovery Group meetings include a deeper exploration of Buddhist practice as well as "Sit and Share.” It is an evening of Dharma practice and discussion. This peer-lead group begins with a period of silent meditation after which the leader will introduce a topic for group sharing that may include the Four Noble Truths, Eightfold Path, Mindfulness, Loving-kindness, Compassion or other Buddhist topics from a recovery perspective.

    Join us every Tuesday at 7pm for an evening of Dharma practice and discussion. The purpose of this ongoing weekly group is to support those who want to integrate Buddhist teachings and practices into their recovery. We encourage the use of mindfulness and meditation and are grounded in Buddhist principles of non-harming, compassion, and interdependence. Each gathering begins with a brief meditation with instructions. New meditators are always welcome. The Buddhist Recovery Group is open to all people who suffer from any addiction or compulsive behavior and are looking for a comprehensive, transformative path to end their suffering. We are open to people of all backgrounds and recovery paths, including but not limited to all 12-Step programs. This meeting is not meant to be a replacement for but rather a supplement to your recovery program.

    “Consider the eight-part program laid down in Buddhism: Right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right living, right effort, right mindfulness and right contemplation. The Buddhist philosophy, as exemplified by these eight points, could be literally adopted by AA as a substitute for or addition to the Twelve Steps. Generosity, universal love and welfare of others rather than considerations of self are basic to Buddhism.” –Spiritual Milestones for Alcoholic Anonymous, Akron Pamphlets (1939)
