Buddhism and Recovery Daylong With Jennifer Lemas & Laura Burges
Sat, June 9, 9:30am – 3:30pm
The Buddha said 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 Buddhist meditation practices, interactive exercises, lecture and discussion, the day will explore the ways that Buddhism and the 12 Steps complement each other.
Beginners are welcome! The day is open to all those interested. You need not be in a Twelve Step program, nor have a background in Buddhist meditation. The day will include introductory meditation instructions.
