The Buddha said craving is the cause of suffering. Twelve Step programs work with the deepest forms of craving – our addictions. How can these two traditions work together?
- Develop or deepen your mindfulness meditation practice (the 11th Step)
- Expand your understanding of recovery and addiction through a Buddhist lens
- Explore traditional Buddhist teachings
This weekend program will focus on Buddhist mindfulness practices that can support recovering addicts, alcoholics and anyone dealing with addictive behaviors. Using meditation practices, interactive exercises, talks by Kevin, and group discussion, we will explore the ways that Buddhism and the Twelve Steps complement each other. Introductory meditation instruction will be offered. This program is open to all who are interested. All recovery programs and paths are welcome.
