This daylong will consist of detailed Buddhist teachings, meditations, Q & A, group discussion, an outline of the inventory process from the book “Refuge Recovery” by Noah Levine, and more.
Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of background or experience with addiction. From a Buddhist perspective, we are all suffering and recovering from something.
“Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented, non-theistic recovery program that does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. In fact, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism is required. Recovery is possible, and this book provides a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness.” – Noah Levine
Please bring: A copy of the book Refuge Recovery, a notebook, and a lunch.
