Awareness underpins every stage of recovery: from breaking the cycle of addiction and avoiding relapse, to sustaining growth and deepening a spiritual connection.This day will draw on Buddhist mindfulness practices as well as Twelve Step concepts that parallel those teachings. Through meditation, lecture, and dialog we will work at deepening our experience of recovery and our capacity for engagement and joy.
