New Buddhist-based recovery group hosts weekly meetings

Posted

Refuge Recovery meetings will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Mondays at Trinity Church in Port Townsend. 

The Refuge Recovery program has adapted the core teachings of the Buddha as a treatment of addiction. Their model is a mindfulness/meditation approach to recovery.

This is not a religious meeting, but it does incorporate non-religious mindfulness and meditation practice. Refuge Recovery is a practice, a process, a set of tools, a treatment, and a path to healing addiction and the suffering caused by addiction, according to program organizers.  

The next scheduled meeting is Oct. 18.

Trinity Church is at 609 Taylor St.
