Refuge Recovery is a community of people who are using the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives and the lives of our loved ones. The path of practice that we follow is called the Four Truths of Refuge Recovery.
The Four Truths of Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented path to recovery from addictions. It has proven successful with addicts and alcoholics who have committed to the Buddhist path of meditation, generosity, kindness, and renunciation.
We feel confident in the power of the Buddha's teachings, if applied, to relieve suffering of all kinds, including the suffering of addiction.
Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple has held a weekly Monday evening meeting at 7:00 p.m. since June 30th. We use the meeting format found at www.refugerecovery.org which begins, "Welcome to the Refuge Recovery weekly group. All are welcome here."
