    Eight Step Recovery Meeting in-person

    Eight Step Recovery is an alternative recovery program to the 12 step program of Alcoholic Anonymous. It uses the Buddhist Teachings to overcome addiction. This Eight Step program  is a set of mindfulness teachings outlining a suggested course of action for recovery from addiction, stinking thinking, negative mental states, and  compulsive and obsessive behaviours. This program was cofounded by Dr Valerie Mason-John M.A (hon.doc) and Dr Paramabandhu Groves Ph.D. in 2013.

    We gather from 6.45 pm for a 7 pm start and finish at 8:15 pm

    We so often find that our minds control our actions, which are not always helpful when we reach for things to change the way we feel. Our Eight Step Recovery meetings are open to anyone who feels they need help with an addiction. We welcome people in recovery from emotional trauma as well.

    We look at the Eight Step Recovery book but also study other Buddhist recovery literature. The meetings give us tools for living life on life’s terms and enables us to share our experiences and support and help each other on our path to freedom from suffering.
