NY Insight Meditation Center Weekend Retreat
December 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
In this weekend retreat we will practice mindfulness meditation and explore recovery and the Twelve Steps through an archetypal lens. While the Steps use theistic language, Buddhism gives us a way to understand recovery in more universal terms, taking us from the truth of suffering and craving, to the transformative realm of insight and loving-kindness.
Using the Buddhism & The Twelve Steps Workbook, we will explore topics like the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, Higher Power, Compassion, and Inventory.
Each day will include instruction in a variety of mindfulness and loving-kindness practices, lecture and discussion, as well as interactive small group work.
Books will be available for purchase.
