Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple is pleased to bring author Kevin Griffin back to Portland for another powerful mindfullness-based recovery workshop March 20th at St. David of Wales Church.
About this workshop:
A lot of recovery literature says we have to "find God" in order to get sober. Buddhism is known as a non-theistic religion. How can someone with a Buddhist orientation find their "higher power"?
This weekend will focus on understanding the Dharma and its many aspects as "Higher Powers." We’ll look at the Steps that mention "god" and consider how we might "come to believe," "turn it over," "remove our shortcomings," and "improve our conscious contact" through this lens.
The day will include meditation instruction, lecture, dialogue, and mindful speech exercises. It is open to all, including those new to recovery or meditation or the simply curious. A vegetarian lunch will be provided.
