Refuge Recovery Daylong with Enrique Collazo
Saturday, June 27
2701 Folsom Street
San Francisco, CA
This daylong will include formal meditation practice, teachings, and discussion on the First Noble Truth, and how we can learn to radically accept what is, while taking the actions to change. You will also have the opportunity to create a First Truth inventory. Please bring a pen and paper. In-depth guidance and instruction will be provided. There will be a break for lunch.
The path of Refuge Recovery begins with the First Truth: addiction creates suffering. This is not a philosophy. It is a practice; it demands action. We must understand, acknowledge, admit and accept all of the ways addiction has caused suffering in our lives. The Four Truths of Refuge Recovery are a Buddhist oriented path to recovery from addictions. It has proven successful with addicts and alcoholics who have committed to the Buddhist path of meditation, generosity, kindness and renunciation.
Refuge Recovery is a community of people who are using the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Cost: $25-45 Dana (donation).
No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
