About this event
- In-person Only
A weekly meeting of Recovery Dharma, a peer-led group that uses Buddhist practices and principles to find freedom from the suffering of addiction. Our program uses The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path as a guide for our recovery. Meetings are a chance to come together to support recovery through the practice of mindfulness, self-inquiry, meditation, study of the Dharma, listening to each other, and building community.
What can I expect?
Each meeting offers short readings, a 15-20 minute meditation, and group sharing in a compassionate, non-judgemental space. Our meetings are free, relying on the generosity of members to support our meeting space where possible. We ask attendees to respect the anonymity and confidentiality of all participants.
What this is for?
Recovery Dharma welcomes anyone who is looking to heal from addiction and addictive behavior, whether it involves substance use or process addictions like gambling, compulsive use of sex or relationships, technology, codependency, eating disorders, self-harm, or any obsessive or habitual pattern that creates suffering.
You do not have to identify as a Buddhist nor have any experience of meditation to attend; this is a program of empowerment and doesn’t ask us to believe in anything other than our own potential to change and heal.
About the facilitator
This meeting is facilitated by volunteers from the Recovery Dharma London Sangha.
Recovery Dharma is a Buddhist-inspired non-profit peer-led movement that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to heal from addiction. More information at recoverydharma.org
