Workshop Details

Buddhism is a path to freedom from suffering. That suffering originates in the addictive quality of the mind and our habitual tendency to grasp at pleasure and push away pain. All addictions stem from these roots.
The Buddhist path offers a spiritual and psychological process of transformation that has proven to be a most effective treatment for our human addiction to thinking and all the suffering we create with the mind. And Buddhist meditation is the most potent tool there is for recovering our original wholeness or Buddha nature.
Open to all levels of experience, this workshop will provide an opportunity to learn and practice several different forms of Buddhist meditation oriented specifically toward breaking free of old ways of thinking. People in 12-step recovery programs are especially welcome.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
