Learn to use mindfulness-based techniques to support people in the addiction recovery process. This retreat will provide the skills to deliver an eight week course on Mindfulness-Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR). This will be an intensive residential training retreat with a full daily schedule. Participants should have a thorough knowledge of meditation, an understanding of mindfulness, and practicing the five traditional Buddhist precepts. This is open to people working in the addiction field, people who have strong recovery, and to those who may have grown up in an addictive home, or have family or friends with addiction.
Aryaloka Sangha members are welcome and encouraged to come. Participants needn’t be in active recovery but are welcome if they have an interest in the subject or in self-development.

Journey into the world of loving kindness and cultivate the conditions to experience no self, in the openness of heart and stillness of mind. This retreat will feature meditation instruction and practice, opportunity for reflection, and skillful guidance to allow you to connect to your heart’s whisper, experiencing the silence of breath and sensations.
Although much of the retreat will be in silence, we will listen to dharma talks from Sangharakshita each evening reminding us of the path of liberation. The retreat will be divided into three phases, metta during both weekends, while dwelling in silence during the week.
