Buddhism and the 12 Steps

About This Event

Join us for a unique meditation retreat combining traditional Buddhist practices with Twelve Step work. Primarily conducted in silence, the retreat focuses on insight/mindfulness meditation, with additional interactive exercises, lecture, and meetings exploring ways that Buddhism and the Steps can complement each other. The emphasis will be on bringing mindfulness to all our activities, whether in formal meditation, movement, speaking, listening, or eating. Participants will practice Noble Silence outside of the interactive exercises and 12-Step-style meetings. All recovery paths are welcome, whether Twelve Step, Refuge Recovery, substance, process, or relationship-oriented. The intensive nature of the retreat allows for profound personal openings, insight, and transformation. The support of the community carries us through the sometimes challenging, sometimes inspiring elements of this deep inner work. A minimum of 30 days clean and sober is required for attendance.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
