Many Wise Friends is an RDO group that gathers three times a week (every Mon, Wed, and Fri) to nurture and grow our experience of recovery and community. We hold a safe and stable space for you to begin or continue your healing. What we have found is that attending our regular weekly meetings deepens our connection to one another and to ourselves. All are welcome here, and All that you are is welcome here!

This meeting uses the Zoom videoconferencing software which supports both internet and telephone.

About Many Wise Friends Meetings

We have customized the “Book Study” format, which is the standard format for Recovery Dharma meetings, featuring a reading from the Recovery Dharma Book to inspire shares:

  • Introductory readings about RD’s practices and principles
  • 15-20 minute guided meditation
  • We read through the book one paragraph at each meeting
  • Group sharing about that day’s reading, meditation, or our recovery
  • On Mondays and Fridays we offer up to 3 minutes for raised hand shares
  • On Wednesdays we offer up to 2 minutes. We call on participants from a randomly-generated list, however you always have the option to opt out.
  • Closing announcements and Dedication of Merit

Virtual Parking Lot: As with all meetings, we stay online after the meeting for casual fellowship, to exchange contact information and to answer questions. The exception for us is that on Wednesdays, we go right back to sharing, until everyone in attendance has had the opportunity to share. 

Please arrive early: Feel free to join us up to 15 minutes before the start of the meeting if you’d like to get settled in, socialize, and maybe volunteer for a reading. We look forward to welcoming you!
