    Heart of Recovery is a group meeting at the Boulder Shambhala Center, focused upon sharing support while bringing together contemplative practice and a commitment to sobriety.

    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.

    Sobriety is finding a new way of living that involves engagement where there was withdrawal; generosity where there was self-centeredness; community where there was isolation; joy where there was bitterness; trust where there was cynicism.

    —Kevin Griffin, One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps
