This week marks the final chapter of Josh Korda's Retreat Making Friends with Your Demons and Hungry Ghosts: Buddhist Tools for Recovery. Josh has been our guide in exploring Buddhist approaches to working with and letting go of underlying stress that propel us towards addictive behavior. Josh's approach is distinct from traditional twelve-step programs that emphasize a relationship of faith to a higher power. In Buddhist approaches to recovery, the task is not to demonize the mind but learn to discern skillful perceptions from unskillful perceptions. Josh introduces the Brahma Viharas as a means of establishing a wholesome relationship to ourselves as we take a careful look at and uncover the sources of our addictions.
