ACA 12-Step Group Meeting
This Adult Children of Alcoholics 12-Step group meeting starts with 20 minutes of meditation followed by 40 minutes of sharing.
We meet to share our experience of growing up in an environment where abuse, neglect and trauma infected us. This affects us today and influences how we deal with all aspects of our lives.
ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows us to grieve our childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of ourselves and our family—so we may (i) identify and heal core trauma, (ii) experience freedom from shame and abandonment, and (iii) become our own loving parents.
Refuge Recovery Meeting
Refuge Recovery is a non-profit organization that has meetings all around the world, grounded in the belief that Buddhist principles and practices create a strong foundation for a path to freedom from addiction.
This program is an approach to recovery that understands: All individuals have the power and potential to free themselves from the suffering that is caused by addiction. We feel confident in the power of the Dharma, if applied, to relieve suffering of all kinds, including the suffering of addiction. This is a process that cultivates a path of awakening, the path of recovering from the addictions and delusions that have created so much suffering in our lives and in this world.
