Heart of Recovery Group

*This group has restarted as of August, 2019. Please join us!*

Meditation for People in Recovery

Every Wednesday evening from 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm at the Seattle Shambhala Center’s main location, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle WA.

The Heart of Recovery is a group meeting focused on sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to recovery to addictions of all kinds. Newcomers will learn basic meditation techniques to enhance, not replace, their own recovery program in a familiar and comfortable environment. Experienced meditators will discover new ways to deepen their current practice while supporting the group.

Meeting format includes:

  • sitting practice
  • a topic offering in the form of brief comments or a reading by the night’s facilitator
  • discussion and exploration by group members
  • sharing our experience, strength and hope
  • dedication of merit

Open to all who are:

  • Buddhist practitioners from any tradition
  • 12 Step practitioners from any program
  • Individuals interested in exploring the relationship of meditation to recovery from addiction and addictive behaviors

Occasionally there may be a change in the schedule — so it’s always good to check the calendar before you come, to be sure we are meeting on any given Wednesday. For questions, please email [email protected]. The meeting is free to attend, but we ask for a donation of any size to help cover costs.

Please join us!


Meeting Location:  Seattle Shambhala Center’s main location in Madison Valley, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle WA.
