 Sundays 5:30-7pm
@ Head/Heart Therapy
3717 N Ravenswood, Suite 239
Professionals in care-giving fields have unique challenges that call for support amongst peers. If you’re a licensed or certified professional caregiver in the health, mental health or addiction field, this meeting is open to you.

Refuge Recovery is a non-theistic, Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addictions of all kinds.  
We are a community of people dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity, using meditation and kindness to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives and in the lives of those around us.
Our weekly peer-led meetings include guided meditations, readings from the book Refuge Recovery, and group sharing and discussion.
Open to people of all backgrounds and respectful of all recovery paths, these meetings are appropriate for anyone in, or interested in, recovery from any forms of addictive behavior.  No prior meditation experience necessary.
Always free; donations welcome.
