The Dharma in Family Recovery

December 2, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

“Not everyone has the type of brain that finds significant relief through alcohol or other substances; in fact, most people had to find other ways to leave, numb, or explain away (i.e., distort) experiences that were too overwhelming for the body, heart and mind of a developing child. And even if you didn’t grow up in the microcosm of an addicted or mentally ill family, all of us grew up in the macrocosm shaped by voracious consumerism, aggression, and confusion about our true relationship to what we call “nature.” We need to recover from the suffering of socially acceptable forms of self-delusion. So for all of us growing up in this culture, recovering awareness of the body and a sense of belonging in life is crucial for navigating, and this is never more true than when you are dealing with the chronic illness of a loved one. Join us for a time of practicing responsible self care.”
