Taking Refuge Breaking the Addiction to the Mind

For all levels.

Buddhism is a path to freedom from suffering that 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 an effective treatment for our human addiction to thinking and the suffering created with the mind. Buddhist meditation is one of the most potent tools available for recovering our original wholeness, or Buddha nature.

Take this opportunity to learn and practice different forms of Buddhist meditation, oriented toward breaking free of habitual reactive patterns. People in Twelve-Step recovery programs and those who resist the Twelve-Step approach are especially welcome. Come find a secure inner refuge from addiction and the suffering it causes.
