A mini-workshop/retreat based on The Zen of Recovery
(Tarcher/Putnam) by Mel Ash. In continuous print for over 25
years, the book is widely regarded as the first ever to combine
Eastern wisdom with 12-step psychology.
The workshop will be interactive and include 11th step
meditation instruction, discussion and time for 12-step style
sharing. Like the book itself, the workshop does not advocate
any belief system other than doing it your way and getting better
and more awake a day at a time, moment to moment.
Whatever your self-diagnosis, whether in recovery or not,
whether you consider yourself a Buddhist or not, this event will
provide a powerful healing and instructive experience. Learn
emotional and spiritual skills that are immediately useful for the
recovery of your true human nature.
A wonderful opportunity to share our experiences and practice our recovery. Both experienced students and newcomers will benefit and have an inspirational and productive time!
Signed books will be available at the event. Bring a cushion if
you like for sitting and wear comfortable clothes. The event is
free, but if you must pay, then pay attention!
