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?

Twelve Step programs recommend meditation as a tool for recovery but offer little instruction. This retreat will give you the opportunity to go deeply into the silence of meditation in a safe, supportive environment.

Using mindfulness meditation, mindful dialog and lecture, the retreat will explore the ways that the Dharma and recovery complement each other. All recovery programs and paths are welcome. It's not necessary to be a member of a 12 Step program.

Mornings will be devoted to silent practice and instruction, while the afternoon will include a period of structured interactive exercises. Each evening there will be an open "meeting." Participants will also have an opportunity to meet with the teacher in small group interviews.

The retreat will include morning and afternoon sessions of Chi Kung. This non-strenuous practice helps us to settle and center our bodies and minds for meditation.

The emphasis will be on bringing mindfulness to all our activities, whether in formal meditation, walking, speaking, listening, or eating. Participants will practice Noble Silence outside of the interactive exercises and discussion periods.
