Welcome to Albuquerque Recovery Sangha for Recovering people.

 We are a group of recovering people from every recovery program who come together to support each other in recovery, and in our mindfulness practice.  All recovering people are welcome!

A Buddhist’s Insight into the 12 Steps of Recovery, as written by Dug C.

1. We admitted that we were powerless over our craving and addiction and that our lives have become unmanageable.

2. We came to believe that a power greater than our individual selves could restore us to wholeness.

3. We made a decision to take refuge in and entrust ourselves to the compassion and guidance of a Greater Power of our understanding.

4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our thoughts, words, and deeds.

5. We admitted to ourselves, our Greater Power, and another human being the precise moral nature of our thoughts, words, and deeds.

6. We became entirely ready to have our Greater Power transform our unwholesome characteristics into wholesome ones.

7. We humbly turned our unwholesome and unskillful qualities over to our Greater Power to be transformed into positive ones.

8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. We continued to remain mindful of our mental, verbal, and physical actions, and when we acted unskillfully, promptly admitted it.

11. We engaged in meditation and prayer in order to improve our conscious contact with our Greater Power (of our understanding) and to gain the insight and strength to realize and attain our Greater Power’s compassionate aspiration for us.

12. Having realized a spiritual awakening because of these steps, we carry this message to others in need of recovery and try to practice these principles in all our affairs.
