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 are 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.
This is an approach to recovery that understands; “All beings have the power and potential to free them-self from suffering”. We feel confident in the power of the Buddha’s teachings, if applied, to relieve suffering of all kinds, including the suffering of addiction.
Meetings appropriate for anyone in recovery, or interested in recovery. No meditation experience is necessary.
Donation only, no preregistration – just drop in.
Weekly meetings are held in Melrose, Santa Monica and San Francisco.
