This three hour workshop will outline the inventory process of Refuge Recovery as its described within the book Refuge Recovery by Noah Levine. The workshop will consist of Buddhist teachings, meditations, writing periods, Q&A, and group discussion.
The written inventory process of Refuge Recovery is one of the most important and transformative aspects of the entire program. Looking back on our history plays a pivotal role in our ability to understand addiction, its causes, its release, and the path that we must follow. We will want to get started on it right away, and should not be taken lightly. We will need to be honest, forthcoming, and diligent in the process. During this workshop we will provide support for those who have started, encouragement for those who have yet to start, discuss how to and why we would want to take inventory.
Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of background or experience with addiction. From a Buddhist perspective we are all recovering from something.
“Refuge Recovery is a Buddhist-oriented, non-theistic recovery program that does not ask anyone to believe anything, only to trust the process and do the hard work of recovery. In fact, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism is required. Recovery is possible, and this book provides a systematic approach to treating and recovering from all forms of addictions. When sincerely practiced, the program will ensure a full recovery from addiction and a lifelong sense of well-being and happiness.” – Noah Levine
