Meditation Retreat: Freedom from Craving retreat October 17-21

Freedom from Craving - Buddhist Practice and Recovery - 5-day residential retreat at Camp Samish south of Bellingham.
The Buddha said craving is the cause of suffering. Craving may manifest in compulsive behaviors, habitual thought and emotional patterns and/or addiction to substances. Buddhists practice to let go of craving; recovery programs work with the the deepest forms of craving - our addictions. How can these traditions work together?
Join us for a meditation retreat combining traditional Buddhist practices and recovery work. Using silent insight meditation & interactive exercises, the retreat will explore ways that Buddhism and the 12 Steps complement and support each other. All paths - Buddhist and recovery - are welcome.
The emphasis will be on bringing mindfulness to all our activities. Participants will practice Noble Silence outside of the interactive exercises.
