Refuge Recovery Inventory Workshop

A Half Day with Dave Smith

Saturday April 18

10am – 2pm



This four hour workshop will outline the inventory process of Refuge Recovery as its outlined within the book Refuge Recovery by Noah Levine. The workshop will consist of detailed Buddhist teachings, meditations, Q&A, group discussion and much more.

Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of background or experience with addiction. From a Buddhist perspective we are all recovering from something.

“Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented, non-theistic recovery program that does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. In fact, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism is required. Recovery is possible, and this book provides a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness.” – Noah Levine
