Saturday, May 22, 2021
Buddhist Philosophy, Practice and Ethics of as Means for Overcoming Addiction
In recent years, sincere efforts have been made to integrate Buddhist practices into Recovery culture and communities. Because there is no universal definition for Buddhist Recovery or how it works, many people find themselves confused and discouraged while looking for perspectives and practices that have meaningful and practical direction and outcome.
This online workshop was specifically created to provide a simple and comprehensive framework for understanding how Buddhism and Dharma practice can be cultivated as means for overcoming addiction, embracing recovery and creating a meaningful life.
Four core components will be covered in the workshop. You’ll learn:
- Mindfulness: the four foundations of mindfulness
- Buddhist psychology and the four tasks
- The Eight-fold path: the process of awakening
- Heart practice: the four brahma-viharas (kindness, compassion, appreciation, and equanimity)
