Esalen Institute – Buddhism and the 12 Steps Workshop

October 30, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - November 1, 2015 @ 12:00 pm

The Buddha said craving is the cause of suffering. Twelve Step programs work with the deepest forms of craving – our addictions. How can these traditions work together?

Join us for a unique meditation retreat combining traditional Buddhist practices with Twelve Step work. Using mindfulness meditation, interactive exercises, lecture, and discussion, the weekend will explore the ways that Buddhism and the Steps complement each other. We will address topics such as Powerlessness, Higher Power, Inventory, Amends, and Spiritual Awakening. All recovery programs and paths are welcome.
