What is Recovery Dharma?

Recovery Dharma is a peer-led movement and community that is unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as partners walking the path of recovery together. Our program uses the Buddhist practices and principles of meditation, self-inquiry, wisdom, compassion, and community as tools for recovery and healing. Recovery Dharma welcomes anyone who is looking to heal from addiction and addictive behavior, whether it’s caused by substance use or process addictions like codependency, gambling, eating disorders, relationships, technology, or any obsessive or habitual pattern that creates suffering.

About Book Study Meetings

“Book Study” is the standard format for Recovery Dharma meetings, featuring a reading from the Recovery Dharma Book to inspire shares:

  • Introductory readings about RD’s practices and principles

  • 20 minute guided meditation

  • Book reading on a specific topic

  • Group sharing about that topic, the meditation, or our recovery

  • Closing announcements and dedication of merit
