Room: Main Meditation Hall

Buddhist practices and teachings have become important elements of many people's recovery programs. Kevin Griffin has been teaching on this intersection for over fifteen years. On this evening he will explore themes relevant to people dealing with any form of addiction, whether substance or process-oriented, making connections with core Buddhist teachings on mindfulness, compassion, and ethics.

This program is presented by The Heart of Recovery - a weekly meditation and sharing support group bringing together Buddhist meditation practice and the Twelve Steps held each Monday at the Boston Shambhala Center and led by John R.

Suggested donation is $10 for this public talk, but whatever you can afford will be sufficient.
