Refund and Event Policies

This Eight Step Recovery Meeting explores recovery through the lens of the Buddhist teachings, and Buddhism through the lens of recovery. If you are attending Twelve Step meetings, this can be your expression of your eleventh step; if you are not in a Twelve Step Program, it can be another way to approach your recovery. This is an extra meeting to complement your recovery, whatever that looks like.
In this meeting, we start with a period of meditation, and read from the book 8 Step Recovery by Valerie Mason-John MA, although you do not need to own the book to attend this meeting. We then have a sharing based on the reading, and end the meeting with the transference of merit. 
This is a peer-led support group with no one as the teacher.  This is a closed meeting for those who are currently in recovery from addictions. Anyone in recovery is welcome, whether you are recovering from alcohol use, food, drugs, codependency, or other behavioral addictions, as long as you would like to use Buddhism to recover, then you are welcome! 
We meet every Friday from 7:30-8:30pm PT.
Suggested Donation: $5
