How The Mindfulness In Recovery® Community Works

The Mindfulness in Recovery® Community has been a vision of our co-founder, John Bruna, for many years. Drawing upon more than three decades in recovery and experience as a substance abuse counselor, educator, Buddhist monastic, and mindfulness teacher, we have developed a mindfulness program and community specifically for people in recovery.

Mission – To provide our members with skills, activities, and a supportive community to cultivate mindfulness in their daily lives, empowering them to make healthy choices that are in alignment with their personal values and beliefs so they can live fulfilling lives in recovery.

Vision – To grow a worldwide and inclusive recovery support community open to anyone with a desire for recovery. We do not define recovery and welcome everyone, supporting all paths of recovery and spiritual traditions. It is our firm conviction that everyone deserves to heal, discover their value, and live a meaningful and fulfilling life in recovery.

NEW – Online Mindfulness Course with John!

Four Keys of Living Mindfully Course HeaderFour Keys of Living Mindfully online course – While meditation is one key to a mindful life, there are other keys that provide more clarity and meaning to one’s life and relationships. In this course, you’ll identify the four keys of mindfulness. You’ll learn how to develop the skills to integrate these four keys in your daily life and gain insight into how these mindfulness practices can offer you a greater sense of well-being, resiliency, and a deeper sense of meaning for your life.

Whether you’ve been practicing mindfulness for a long time, or just starting out, this course will offer you specific tools and relevant teachings. No prior study of mindfulness or experience in meditation is required for this course. If you have been practicing mindfulness and meditation already, this course will deepen and enhance your practice. Learn more.
