Transforming Our Addictive and Compulsive Behaviors: A Retreat For All Beings @ Flowering Lotus
Sep 13 @ 5:02 am – Sep 15 @ 6:02 am

Back By Popular Demand – Vimalasara offers us another retreat on the theme of vision and transformation. Together we will explore 8 steps specifically created for overcoming our addictive and compulsive behaviors.

The perfect boot camp, to help re-charge your recovery and help cultivate sobriety mind, with the teachings of the four noble truths, and loving kindness. It’s possible to break the vicious cycle of stinking thinking, addictive and compulsive behaviors. The Buddha taught everything changes, a reminder that nothing stays the same. Come sit with me and in the words of Bob Marley “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.”
