As spiritual friends, the Heart of America Sangha members support each other in bringing the skills of meditation into daily life with the goal of increasing wisdom and compassion.   We meditate for thirty minutes then discuss our practice in relation to a relevant topic.  Beginning meditation instruction is available at each meeting.  We follow the Theravada tradition, the oldest of the still-existing schools of Buddhism.  One need not be a Buddhist or hold any particular beliefs to benefit from the practice.      
   

BUDDHISM & 12-STEP RECOVERY
Day & Time: Thursdays, 6:15pm - 7:15pm

This group also meets Tuesdays at 6:15 PM in the Myrtle Fillmore Chapel and Sundays at 12:30 PM in Classroom A.

Our meetings last one hour. Please keep that in mind so everyone gets a chance to share. When we introduce ourselves, we say our name. We are not required to state our addiction or our personal affiliation with a particular 12-step program or programs.

Halfway through the meeting we will pass the donation bowl. If you have the means, please donate. This meeting is made possible through the generosity of the Temple Buddhist Center and Unity Temple. We have business meetings after the regular Sunday meeting on the first Sunday of even months, February, April, June, August, October, and December. To date we have no trusted servants, other than meeting leaders. If you would like to lead a meeting please talk with the meeting leader after the meeting for details.
