Recovery Dharma Berlin

Using Buddhist Practices and Principles to Heal the Suffering of Addiction

Recovery Dharma is a peer-led movement and community. Our mission is to support individuals on their path of recovery from addiction using Buddhist practices and principles. We are unified by our trust in the potential of each of us to recover and find freedom from the suffering of addiction. We believe that recovery means empowerment, and we support each other as wise friends and partners walking the path of recovery together as a Sangha (community).

Recovery Dharma welcomes anyone who is looking to heal from addiction and addictive behavior, whether it’s caused by substance use or process addictions like codependency, gambling, eating disorders, relationships, technology, or any obsessive or habitual pattern that creates suffering. We’ve found that this Buddhist-inspired path can lead to liberation from the suffering of addiction, and we support you in finding your own path to recovery.

Our program uses the Buddhist practices of meditation, self-inquiry, wisdom, compassion, and community as tools for recovery and healing. We believe that recovery is about finding our own inner wisdom and our own path. We believe that the traditional Buddhist teachings, often referred to as the Dharma, offer a powerful approach to healing from addiction and living a life of true freedom.

If all this speaks to you and you would like to see for yourself how it works, or have further questions, come to one of our meetings or reach out to us via our contact form!

Anti Harassment Statement

We, the Sangha, commit to creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for newcomers and long term members, regardless of their race, sexual orientation, gender identity, age and ability.
To create a safe and comfortable atmosphere so we can recover together successfully, we commit to

  • welcoming newcomers into the meeting and aftermeeting
  • preserving the mindful, healing spirit of our meetings when socialising with each other outside the rooms
  • taking responsibility and addressing instances of unwise speech (e.g., crosstalk, advice giving, commenting on a member’s appearance, …)
  • acting mindfully in our sexual conduct towards fellows (particularly newcomers and those whose recovery is vulnerable), and
  • creating an atmosphere in which everyone can speak up when they’ve had a bad experience.
