Through educational lecture, experiential exercises and personal stories from the front lines Dave Smith will outline a Dharma
Recovery. This process cultivates a path of awakening, a path of recovering from the addictions that have created suffering
in our lives and in this world. All living beings have the ability to live life along these lines, there is no-one that lacks ability only
those who lack the willingness to take on such a radical task of transformation. Addicts who do not recover are not broken or
lost; they just have not yet found the willingness to take the path of wisdom (understanding) and compassion (non-harming). We
believe in the human capacity for transformation and change.
Drawing inspiration from the original teachings of the Buddha we outline a program of recovery that that understands;
All individuals have the power and potential to free themselves from suffering. We feel confident in the power of the Buddhas
teachings, if applied, to relieve suffering of all kinds, including the suffering of addiction. This path has four major components
that will be outlined during this workshop.
Process- There is a process to recovery that needs to be understood, practiced and maintained
Practice- There is a practice to be cultivated; mindfulness and heart practice meditation
Principle- Understanding and applying the principle of cause and effect; changing the behaviors that cause suffering
Power- Each individual has to do the work themselves. No one can recovery for you
