Eight Step Recovery

Eight Step Recovery

Final class for 2019 is 22 December - there'll be a break until March 2020

These are meetings where we explore Buddhist teachings to help overcome addiction, habitual behaviours or obsessive tendencies. They are open to anyone who sees themselves as being in recovery from addiction, habitual behaviours or obsessive tendencies.

We will but mainly using the book Eight Step Recovery: Using The Buddha’s Teachings to Overcome Addiction, but for some meetings we may look at other Buddhist recovery books.

The group is peer-led, and your confidentiality and privacy will always be respected.

Please see the below video which interviews people whom have had great benefit from Eight Step Recovery.
