This time of year is especially challenging for people who have struggled with addictions to drugs, alcohol, food, and painful family relationships. Memories of holidays past can trigger destructive behaviors and wasteful spending; the stress of expectations can be an emotional drain.
This day provides a respite from the holidays, using Buddhist mindfulness and lovingkindness practices as healing tools for people in recovery. Combining 12 Step work with Buddhist teachings, we will practice meditation, mindful dialogue, and explore ways to 'practice these principles in all our affairs.' Join us for a supportive and nurturing day with others on the path of recovery.
Teachings are appropriate for individuals as well as health care professionals. Continuing Education (CE) credit available.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited and fixed income) are invited to attend this day for $25.
