Heart of recovery is back!

Heart of Recovery 2The Heart of Recovery is back! We took a break, we thought about it, we’ve gotten organized, it’s on the schedule, and we’re excited about it!! Please join us, AJ Rock and Ruth Hampton, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 7:15pm to 8:45pm.  Heart of Recovery welcomes anyone who has been affected by compulsive and addictive thoughts and behaviors.   Through the use of Shambhala Buddhist teachings, seated meditation, and other recovery-based resources, we walk the path of recovery and discover ways to wake up to our lives.

“Working with addictions is about not just impulsively grabbing for something to stop the itching, not just grabbing for something to fill up the space, not giving in to this impulse to feel okay and just to get comfortable as soon as possible. When we scratch the wound and give into our addictions we do not allow the wound to heal. But when we instead experience the raw quality of the itch or pain of the wound and do not scratch it, we actually allow the wound to heal. So not giving in to our addictions is about healing at a very basic level. It is about truly nourishing ourselves.”  – Pema Chodron, Working with our Addictions

Heart of Recovery is an opportunity to find support and encouragement within the Shambhala sangha to change habitual patterns that no longer serve us.  So come! Be present! Be curious! Be nourished!  We look forward to seeing you!
