Scripts and recordings of Recovery Dharma’s Mindfulness Meditations created by members.
Recovery Dharma is founded on, and inspired by, Buddhism that originated in India and later on flourished in other regions of Asia (e.g., South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia). We deeply appreciate the Buddhist heritage that was protected and freely offered by the ancestors of these cultures.

May you find peace exactly where you are.
A concentration practice followed with offerings of forgiveness for self and others.
I know I have acted out of fear, pain, and confusion, and for today, I offer myself forgiveness. I forgive myself.
I now remember the ways you have hurt or harmed me, out of your own fear, pain, confusion and anger. I offer my forgiveness.
I know I have harmed you through my thoughts, words, or actions. I ask for your forgiveness.
