August Retreat: Making Friends with Your Demons and Hungry Ghosts

This post contains video. View media now

Today marks the first day of Josh Korda's retreat, Making Friends with Your Demons and Hungry Ghosts: Buddhist Tools for Recovery. Over the next four Mondays, Josh will offer his take on how Buddhist practice and theory supports stepping out of habitually ingrained addictive behaviors. His down-to-earth style and personal struggle with addiction makes for a simple and honest explanation of the basic psychological mechanisms of addiction and the implications for recovery. This week Josh illuminates the premise that all addictions are stress relieving strategies. The Buddha's Four Noble Truths offers a framework for understanding how addictive behavior arise as false coping strategies from life's fundamental discomforts. 

Here's a preview of what's to come. This first week is open for all to view
