The Buddha pointed out that craving is the cause of suffering. Twelve Step programs work with the deepest forms of craving. How can these two traditions come together to deepen our spiritual life? Through a combination of traditional and contemporary Buddhist meditation practices, interactive exercises, talks, and discussion, we will explore the ways that Buddhism and the Steps complement each other.
The retreat and will include introductory meditation and will be conducted primarily in Noble Silence with periods of formal spoken practice and sharing.
This retreat is open to all who are interested, but people in recovery must be at least three months clean and sober to attend.
