Issues with addiction and craving affect us all.  Most of us are addicted to something -- video games, sugar, television -- but when these habitual patterns become extreme and play out with substances and relationships they can often bring us to our knees.  Those around us suffer in turn.   

Heart of Recovery explores how meditation and mindfulness intersect with recovery from addiction and other harmful habitual patterns and help us rediscover our confidence and trust in our own basic goodness within a sharing community and meditation practice. 

 On this evening we welcome Tom Fitzpatrick from the Palm Beach Shambhala sangha to discuss addiction and recovery. Tom has been studying and practicing in the Shambhala tradition since 2008 and has been clean and sober within the 12-step recovery model for 13 years.  He was a founder of the Heart of Recovery group at Shambhala in Los Angeles and again in 2014 at Palm Beach Shambhala.­­­­  He is interested in establishing Heart of Recovery meetings in Miami.
