Refuge Recovery: A Buddhist Path To Recovering From Addiction.
The book that is the basis for our recovery program includes an introduction to the Refuge Recovery program, a format for Refuge Recovery meetings, guided meditations used in RR meetings, and personal stories of recovery. Refuge Recovery is a systematic method based on Buddhist principles, which integrates scientific, non-theistic, and psychological insight. Viewing addiction as craving in the mind and body, Refuge Recovery shows how a path of meditative awareness can alleviate those desires and ease suffering. Daily meditation practices, written investigations that explore the causes and conditions of our addictions, and advice and inspiration for finding or creating community are included. Practical yet compassionate, the successful Refuge Recovery system is designed for anyone interested in a non-theistic approach to recovery and requires no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism or meditation.
