Meditation in Recovery: Being Free From Suffering with Lovingkindness (OL)

  • 22 Nov 2020

  • Online


Registration is closed

Cultivating the practice of lovingkindness leads to inner and outer peace with ourselves and others. Through this practice, we learn to live in the present moment as we grow in calmness, clarity of mind and understanding. For many of us who have dealt with addictions or just life's many challenges, this practice becomes even more essential to help us cultivate a stable mind. 

This Meditation in Recovery event will include meditation with a particular emphasis on building skills of settling the mind and body, and being aware of the present moment. There will be talks addressing lovingkindness with practice during meditation. There will also be opportunities for Q and A and sharing by participants.

This event is open to everyone, whether you are new to meditation or have been meditating for a long while. It is also appropriate for practitioners in any Recovery program or anyone wanting an opportunity to enhance meditation and lovingkindness practices. For more information contact Eleanor at
