Eight Step Recovery

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Wed, 12 Feb, 2014 - 00:00
Vimalasara speaks on the importance of loving oneself as a part of recovery from addiction as an introduction to her new book, co-authored with Paramabandhu, entitled 'Eight Step Recovery - Using the Buddha's Teachings to Overcome Addiction'. She goes on to discuss the life conditions that she and Paramabandhu have emerged from, and how those energies came together and inspired the writing of the book. Outlining the eight steps, Vimalasara demonstrates that, while the book was mainly written for those in recovery, it is in some way for everyone. The talk is followed by a question and answer session.
