The Spiritual Principles of Imagine Recovery Residence

These are the spiritual principles that we practice at Imagine Recovery Residence. They will help you as you create a new life from your imagination, not your history:

  1. We conform to the spiritual principles of recovery, which means we’re all on the same page, helping each other towards the same aim.
  1. We lead by group decision rather than driving by mandate so each person grows in self-esteem and community, knowing that their ideas, voices and contributions matter.
  1. When confronted by fear we find serenity and power in peer support and in the daily practice of prayer and meditation.
  1. We put emotional and physical sobriety first by holding each other accountable to the spiritual principles.
  1. We understand that we cannot keep the gift of physical and emotional sobriety if we do not give the gift away by helping our fellow house members and others in recovery.
  1. We do not try to be all things to all people lest we become obsessed with perfection. We simply explore new ideas with the guidance of the group as a whole and a spirit of self-enquiry.
  1. We are self-supporting as a household, building self-esteem and self-reliance by our own contributions.
  1. We are good examples to fellow house members in all we do. This practice effects positive change that leaves us feeling expansive and satisfied.
  1. When we are at fault we immediately make a sincere apology to our housemates and take restorative action knowing we’ll be respected for it. Admit it, correct it, and learn from it.
  1. We make a decision to change ourselves rather than self-righteously asking people, places or things to change for us.
  1. We manifest integrity by being loyal to those who are not present. In doing so, we build the trust of those who are present.
  1. We are actually to practice a genuine humility. To this end our great blessings may never spoil us and we shall forever live in thankful contemplation of the Universal Law that presides over us all.
