Recovery Dharma Oxford

Recovery Dharma is a peer-led meeting that believes each of us can recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that recovery means personal empowerment which we find through mutual support and self-inquiry. Our programme uses buddhist principles such as meditation, mindfulness, forgiveness and community as tools for recovery and healing, though there is no belief in Buddha required. All are welcome. This is not a programme based in dogma or religion, but in finding the truth for ourselves, the word ‘Dharma’ literally means truth. It’s fully compatible with other spiritual paths and programmes of recovery. We invite you to investigate these practices and see if they have value in your personal recovery.  Our meditations are all guided and no previous experience is necessary. 

We welcome anyone interested in recovery from addiction of all kinds. This is an approach that understands: ‘All beings have the power and the potential to free themselves from suffering’

‘Ours is a programme that asks us to never stop growing. It asks us to own our choices and be responsible for our own healing, wherever we are on our path. It’s based on kindness, generosity and deep compassion. We do not rely on tools of shame and fear as motivation.’
