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 over 3 decades in recovery, 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 welcome everyone and support 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 happy life in recovery.

Essential Guidebook to Mindfulness in Recovery CoverNEW – The Essential Guidebook to Mindfulness in Recovery by John Bruna

The Essential Guidebook to Mindfulness in Recovery is a complete mindfulness and recovery curriculum that is accessible, practical and aligns seamlessly with all pathways to recovery, including 12-Step programs, to provide life skills that support a fulfilling and meaningful life in recovery. The Guidebook helps you develop the seven skills of living mindfully in recovery with lessons, meditations, daily practices, and reflections. The guidebook is an invaluable resource to help you cultivate resiliency, discover your inner potentials, and develop a consistent practice to engage more productively and joyfully in your life of recovery.  

Guided Meditations

We offer a range of meditations which address attentional balance, as well as contemplative meditations which help cultivate healthy mental and emotional states. If you are new to meditation, we recommend that you read the article “The Four Keys to Living Mindfully” in the MLP Mindfulness Library.
