MOI Refuge Recovery

The MOI Refuge Recovery group meets on Thursdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, in Omaha at MOI, 3015 Pacific Street. Refuge Recovery is a dharma-inspired approach, dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness and generosity to heal the pain and suffering caused by addiction. It is a systematic approach to training our hearts and minds to see clearly and respond to our lives with understanding and non-harming. This process cultivates the path of recovering from the addictions and delusions that create suffering in our lives and in this world. When sincerely engaged in, Refuge Recovery’s program will not only ensure a full recovery from any addiction (food, drugs, sex, alcohol, etc), but also a lifelong sense of well-being. Aside from the MOI Thursday meetings at 6:30pm there is a Refuge Recovery meeting held at Omaha Power Yoga on Monday evenings at 7:30pm.
