Southern Dharma Buddhist Recovery Retreat WAIT LIST
August 30 @ 4:00 pm - September 5 @ 4:00 pm
Join us for a unique meditation retreat combining traditional Buddhist practices with Twelve Step work. Primarily conducted in silence, the retreat focuses on insight/mindfulness meditation, with additional interactive exercises, lecture, and meetings exploring ways that Buddhism and the Steps can complement each other. Daily Chi Kung practice brings added benefit and energy to the retreat.
The emphasis will be on bringing mindfulness to all our activities, whether in formal meditation, movement, speaking, listening, or eating. Participants will practice Noble Silence outside of the interactive exercises and 12-Step-style meetings. All recovery paths are welcome, whether Twelve Step, Refuge Recovery, substance, process, or relationship-oriented.
The intensive nature of the retreat allows for profound personal openings, insight, and transformation. The support of the community carries us through the sometimes challenging, sometimes inspiring elements of this deep inner work.
