Program Details

For all levels.

Buddhism is a path to freedom from suffering. That suffering originates in the addictive quality of the mind and our habitual tendency to grasp at pleasure and push away pain. All addictions stem from these roots.

The Buddhist path offers a spiritual and psychological process of transformation that has proven to be an effective treatment for our human addiction to thinking and the suffering we create with the mind. Buddhist meditation is one of the most potent tools there is for recovering our original wholeness, or Buddha nature.

This weekend provides an opportunity to learn and practice several different forms of Buddhist meditation, oriented specifically toward breaking free of old ways of thinking and habitual reactive patterns. People in Twelve-Step recovery programs and those who resist the Twelve-Step approach are especially welcome. Everyone will find a secure inner refuge from addiction and the suffering it causes.
