2014/04/15Victoria Buddhism in Recovery Meeting

Victoria Buddhism in Recovery (B12)

We are a group of people in recovery who meet to discuss Buddhism and recovery.

We meet at the Friary at 1076 Joan Crescent in Victoria. the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 7:30 to 9:00pm

The following guidelines are being used. “We support the use of Buddhist teachings, traditions and practices to help people recover from the suffering caused by addictive behaviours. The meetings are open to people of all backgrounds and respectful of all recovery paths. We promote mindfulness and meditation and are grounded in Buddhist principals of non-harming, compassion and interdependence (adapted from buddhistrecovery.org). We encourage our members to stay active in the recovery program of their choice. This group is considered a supplement to our 12 step programs. The meetings are 1.5 hours and consist of an opening followed by a 20 minute meditation. There is then a 20 minute talk or reading followed by time for sharing. Please try to be on time or enter mindfully, so as not to disturb the meditation of others. Please bring your own beverage. This meeting is by donation, with proceeds going to the Friary
