White Heron Sangha welcomes you to a talk by Kevin Griffin on the intersection between Buddhist practices and teachings and recovery programs. These teachings and practices have become important elements of many people's recovery programs today, and Kevin has been teaching on this intersection for over fifteen years.
Kevin's talk will explore themes relevant to people dealing with any form of addiction, whether substance or process-oriented, making connections with core Buddhist teachings on mindfulness, compassion, and ethics.
